NEW! Aurora FMR-1 AM/FM Stereo Conversion
For Original Antique Vehicle Radios
THIS IS IT -- the Stereo Receiver that is revolutionizing the industry! Make no mistake -- not all stereo conversions are the same, and THIS one comes right out of Detroit. Built to automotive standards in the same plants that build modern automotive components, this product raises the bar to a new level. "No Excuses" performance, "Bulletproof" reliability. Fully tested under extreme conditions, this PCB is designed to withstand just about any temperature or voltage abuse one can care to give it. Rock-solid digital tuning that has the "feel" of the original analog tuner; crystal clear audio using new technology that runs cooler than conventional designs; compatible with virtually every radio tuner ever made without modifications; this conversion is designed to outperform anything out there, and continue to do it for many years to come! Your radio is disassembled and cleaned. Old components are removed, the FMR-1 is installed and calibrated to work with the radio's original functions. The radio looks, feels, and operates as before, but it sounds fantastic -- and you have FM stereo! Power output is 180 watts! (45 x 4) Of course many older vehicles don't have provisions for four speakers, and you're not about to cut up the interior to accommodate them. This stereo is just as happy with two speakers as it is four, and you can even use a single speaker (mono) if that's all your car allows. This stereo senses your speaker arrangement at power-up, and configures itself to match it! A Line Input jack is INCLUDED. Input mode is selected simply by moving the tuning dial to the far left -- set a pushbutton if you wish. Power cycling (turning the radio off then immediately back on) switches bands between AM and FM. Balance and fader can be adjusted using the tone control. Naturally, radios with AM/FM switch or compatible balance/fader controls will operate normally.
BT-1 Bluetooth Adapter: Imagine -- you want to play music from your cell phone. Just select the music on your phone, and you'll hear it on the stereo! You can also take and receive phone calls, and best of all it's completely seamless! Unlike those cheap adapter devices that plug into your lighter and require fumbling with the radio, the BT-1 is PART OF the radio, fully FCC certified, built to automotive industry standards, and designed to work completely hands-free!
Line Outputs: This low-cost option allows post-balance/fader, fully buffered connections to external amps. This option provides 4 channels plus a mono subwoofer output.
FMR-HV Power supply: For Wonderbar and other signal seeking radios that require 30-50 volts to operate the specialized components. Physically small, provides adequate voltage for just about any product out there, and will NOT interfere with AM reception as is the case with older designs. This one is designed to tackle the job!
HPC Voltage booster: The FMR-1 is designed for use with 12 volt, negative ground car electrical systems. This voltage booster provides this power in vehicles using 6 volts, positive or negative ground, or 12 volts positive ground systems. The HPC provides up to 64 watts from 6 volts positive ground, or 96 watts from 12 volts positive or 6 volts negative. That's considerably more than the other boosters/inverters on the market! Never before has this amount of stereo power been available in 6 volt car systems!
Prices: We try to make the pricing uncomplicated -- but not all radios are the same. Please read all notes below. Specifically, if your vehicle does not have 12 volts negative ground available, you'll need a voltage booster. If your Wonderbar/Town & Country radio is a 1958 or earlier, it may require additional hardware.
FMR-1 Stereo Conversion price:
All-transistor American AM radios, manual or pushbutton (typically 1963 and later): $385
Tube/hybrid radios, AM/FM sets, foreign-made sets: $400
Wonderbar, Town & Country, Electro-Touch, and other signal seeker sets -- MOST models: $435. See notations below.
Delco Wonderbar all-tube sets: 1957 and older GM, Packard, Studebaker, and 1958 Buick & Cadillac require an FMR-HV power supply. Eldorado transistor set does NOT need it. Add $50.
Bendix Travel-Tune (Town & Country) sets for 1956-57 Lincoln/Mercury use a synchronous motor which is incompatible with the FMR-1 conversion. Stay tuned, Aurora Design is working on it.
If your vehicle has a 6 volt electrical system, or a 12 volt positive ground, a Voltage Booster is required to provide the correct 12 volts, negative ground for the stereo. HPC Power Booster: $100.
BT-1 Bluetooth Adapter: Provides wireless connection from your smart phone. Includes microphone for hands-free phone conversation and external pushbutton for pairing/other functions. $200
Line Outputs: Offers four post-fader line outputs for external amp and one mono subwoofer line output. $15
