Sansui 9090 db 125 watts per channel got it in 1977
Some people care about equipment. Most people seem to expect simple background noise. Stick some earbuds in, connect thru bluetooth, let Katy Perry throb away in the background, and get on with life.
I remember when people bought full systems, sat down, and just listened.
“THEY” don’t want you/us to listen to talk radio. It’s not in their favor for us to listen to truth.
I sympathize. The AM radio in my 2009 is nothing but static...they can’t seem to fix it... the dealer’s service center rep tells me the current versions or maybe the 2018 version will NOT even have an AM capability... I do not need FM or CD in my car thank you !! But no, AM is a thing of the past. Of course my kids call me a fossil anyway so I guess I am!
That’s a little too retro, even for me!
Next thing, I’ll be seeing that white dog with a black patch on his eye sitting in front of the Victorola crank player.
Try garage sales. My husband picks up good, working, older electronics that way.
I’m not greatly into electronics, but bought a BOSE home stereo and TV system about 5 years ago.
The thing is awesome - it has AM radio, but also, it plays every single video CD or DVD I have ever put in there. I have 20+ year old pirated movie CD’s from China that it seems to have formatting for and plays flawlessly. My computers can’t even do that.
That’s Nipper———and I’d welcome him back.
Bose. Paul Harvey used to rave about that brand.
Expensive, but maybe worth it.
When I was a kid we lived in the country and there was no electricity. We had a large AM radio which was the only thing there was I think.
It took a huge EverReady battery about the size of a car battery but not nearly as heavy. We had to conserve the battery and only listened to it at night around the fireplace.
I was listening to Radio Deutschland a few years ago and they mentioned that during the 1920s they were able to broadcast worldwide on only 200 watts.
“I remember when people bought full systems, sat down, and listened.”
I still do. Magnepan 3.7is driven with an Audio Research DSi200, ARC CD5 CD player, highly modified Thorens TD126 mkIII (Mayware arm w/Ortofon Gold), and an ARC PH3se phono preamp. It is glorious.
I have to have my A.M. radio.
The static most places in my area now makes it even harder to pick it up. I remember driving vehicles that only had A.M radio. Actually would be happy with just an A.M. radio now that I have radio problems with one of my present vehicles. Also having a problem purchasing a true wind up alarm clock at a reasonable price. One that doesn’t take ANY batteries.
Cruise the thrift stores. All sorts of primitive electronic has-beens to be found.
Bose ugh. One can do far better for the money
Look in for a travel alarm clock at Walmart or on ebay. I bought one or two last year.
I had two pairs of. Bose 901s loved them
Thrift store. Get what you need for $50 - $80 or so. Try before you buy. I have a thrift store receiver in my music Studio and works fine and I mix semi-pro tracks with it.
