AM/FM Conversion Radios

Original Appearance- Modern Performance


The New FMR-2 Now Available!

We are proud to offer the New and Updated Aurora Designs FMR-2! This AM/FM conversion module is amazingly compact and can be performed on any radio. After conversion, your radio will have AM and FM tuner and AUX input along with FOUR CHANNEL OUTPUT. Thanks to the use of sophisticated algorithms and a custom Real Time Operating System (RTOS), All functions are controlled from your stock radios controls using a "Virtual Fader and Balance". The New FMR-2 retains all the same great features as the original FMR-1, but now includes:

*More robust, higher performance power amplifier - Can now drive two 2 ohm speakers(4x45W into 4 ohms / 2x75W into 2 ohms @ 14.4V)

*Differential Auxiliary Input - Floating ground virtually eliminates ground loop noise

*New Tube Emulation Mode for perfect, concours quality operation

(functions and features subject to change without notice)

This truly is The Best Way to begin adding a full stereo system to your classic. The sound is amazing!


How is the Conversion performed

We completely disassemble your stock radio, clean all cosmetics and paint the outer case in a durable hammer finish. We then clean/repair the original Volume control and tuning mechanisms, including pushbuttons and tuning coils same as we would for a stock restoration. These are typically the only internal components that will be retained from the original radio. We then add the FMR-1 conversion module and wire it into the radio. After a basic integration procedure, your radio is ready to perform like a Modern day AM/FM, 4 speaker Radio with AUX input. Absolutely amazing sound and function with 100% original appearance!



All converted radios carry a 1 year warranty against manufacturing or workmanship defects.

Add Bluetooth to your Converted Radio

The NEW BT-2 Bluetooth module was designed to work directly with the FMR-2 conversion. For an additional charge, you can add the abilty to stream music or answer calls from your Bluetooth capable phone.

Add Bluetooth AND USB to your Converted Radio

The NEW BTU-2 was engineered to work seamlessly with all Aurora Design products, so you can now create the ultimate classic radio with AM/FM 180W digital radio, Bluetooth audio streaming and hands free phone, and USB/MP3 playback!
