FM Conversion for Sapphire I II III IV V VI Radios   Price: $395
This conversion adds FM and Auxiliary Input to your 6V or 12V Sapphire and Big M radios. The Aurora Design FMC-2 module provides excellent FM reception and auxiliary input (optional) for MP3 players, satellite radio, etc.

The conversion is non-destructive, nothing removed from the radio and is installed inside the radio case (nothing seen). I'm currently converting Sapphire I (1962 to 1965), Sapphire III (1966), Sapphire V (1967) and Big M radios... I'm also converting Sapphire II, IV and VI radios (replacing the FM section). Please contact me for other radios.

Converted radios play in either AM/FM or AM/FM/Auxiliary Input modes. On AM radios, you select the mode by turning the radio Off & On within ~2 seconds. Preset buttons, volume, tone and tuning knobs all work exactly as before the conversion. A continuous hot wire is NOT required and the radio returns to the previously selected AM/FM/Aux mode. Auxiliary Input uses a standard 1/8" headphone jack which is normally mounted in the side of the radio.

This is the best FM conversion I've seen. Conversion price is approximately $395 to add FM and $445 to add FM/Aux. These prices include required maintenance to get your radio working correctly. If you've recently purchased or repaired your radio with me, contact me for a reduced price.

Email any conversion questions. Also, see my ads on Samba, visit my web site for additional Sapphire radio information and/or email for availability of Sapphire I - VI (60-67) radios and radio repair.


Thanks, Rich
