    It doesn’t matter who’s right.

    A receiver has the ability to tune in to RF signals from one or more broadcast bands, most commonly the 530-1200khz AM and 88-108mhz FM bands. Receivers usually have amplifiers built in. An amplifier would not have a built-in tuner. Both generally have auxiliary inputs for things like turntables, tape decks, cd players, etc., and would thus have the ability to amplify the audio line output from a computer.

    Not familiar with the CA-55, but if you can listen to the radio, its a receiver. If you need an external tuner, its an amplifier.

    The Fisher CA-55 had no tuner so it is not a receiver.

    .It is only an Amplifier.
