ABOUT THIS PIECE:
These AM transistor radios were very popular back in the early 70s and came in a variety of different brands. I remember seeing one for Hormel Chili. We reconfigured this radio into a Bluetooth speaker and replaced the 9 volt battery power source with an on/off USB cable. Just plug it into any USB port and its ready to go. It's made out of a sturdy plastic and is roughly the same size as a 12oz can of beer.
It's in fantastic condition and has a surprisingly rich sound for such a small speaker (located on top). This would be a great decorator piece and would add a unique/retro look to any home, office, or bar!
Beer not included.
Price includes shipping ($10 refunded if shipping not required).
DESCRIPTION AND USAGE:
The radio plays whatever you stream to it via Bluetooth and wont receive radio stations via traditional radio airways. However, almost every radio station now broadcasts over the internet. These broadcasts can be easily accessed using apps such as TuneIn and IHeart Radio. Other streaming audio apps include Audible.com, Pandora, Spotify, Google Play, and Amazon Prime Music. Simply find your favorite radio station or music service and stream it via Bluetooth to the radio for a truly amazing and unique audio experience!
This radio is fitted with an internal Bluetooth wireless amplifier and receiver that easily pairs to your iPhone, Android or Bluetooth enabled device (within a 30 foot radius).
The volume control is done via your smartphone or Bluetooth enabled device.
Use the on/off switch on the USB cable.
As with anything of this age, there may be some minor scratches, bumps or bruises. Please take a close look at the pictures.
