No problem Oom Johann. I am glad it found a good home. I just need to test the rest and sell them. I got a Pioneer 4-track in my garage with plenty cassettes and use it every day.

Have fitted the radio back to where it belongs! :mrgreen: Will try to manufacture new knobs. They are twice the length of the Sanyo knobs and should be of aluminium or chrome plate! Minutes to fit and very good quality sound has a full width heat box!
Note the different band selectors; BC; SW; SW1; SW2; MW & FM :mrgreen:

For 'temporary' knobs; those silver looking ones in the above pic do look 'factory'. 8)

Very nice those old radios, my 1978 Escort still has the original RALLY FM radio fitted and it still works.

The new thing in the US and Europe is taking these old original car radios and fitting modern internals with MP3, Bluetooth, USB etc but keeping the face totally original. I went to value a 1971 Mercedes SL and the client showed me the original Becker Monza radio that he had fitted, absolutely standard looking as it was back then, but all modern inside , cost him R24k to import 8O

Hey Rassie, maybe a market out there for doing this to the old radios, buy a radio from HiFi corp for around R500- R1000 and then use the face on from the old ones and somehow adapt to the new radio.. would be awsome

The amazing thing about the Supersonic is that it is 52 yrs old, required a good cleaning and still has a good clean sound! Only work required was to use cleaning spray (Doom) to clean the volume and tone pots to stop the scratching noises! The volume is amazing!! Much cheaper than paying R24K!!

To adapt will not be easy! From analog to digital is a new mission!!
