Skinny on sound 

For those low on space and big on music, Fisher offers its new Slim Stereo. Less than 4 inches deep, this ultracompact system hangs on a wall like a picture, instead of taking up table space or requiring a cabinet. The futuristic-looking unit houses a vertical CD player, an AM/FM radio with a digital tuner, remote control, headphone jack, treble and bass settings, an alarm clock and much more. Even with its detachable two-way speakers, the little stereo weighs less than 8 pounds and stands less than 2 feet high. And it has a lightweight price to match. The Fisher Slim Stereo is available at and many other electronic retailers for about $200.
