Forum rules


If your thread or post disappears - read the rules again - no warnings or explanations will be given when threads or posts are deleted.

The following requirements must be followed when advertising personal antique radio / TV / audio / phono items (such as discussed in the forums here) for sale in the classifieds forum:

  • TITLE--Titles must START with: FS (when selling) or WTB (when wanting to buy) or Trade or Free at the beginning of the title.
  • PRICE--FS posts must have an "asking" price and offers may be sent by PM. Are you parting something out? ... price each major part (not things like screws and nuts)
  • LOCATION--There must be a location somewhere in the ad or the members profile (City & State or Zip Code are the minimum requirement). This includes WTB ads.
  • Discussion -- This is NOT a discussion forum. If you're not buying or supplying or suggesting a relevant solution, don't post - send a Private Message. Comments on pricing will be deleted.
  • Ads are limited to two per day, and may not be bumped sooner than 7 days after the last post to the thread.
  • No outside sales links are allowed other than to pictures of actual items being sold. No links allowed to eBay, Craigslist etc.
  • First to post to an item for sale stating "I WILL TAKE IT" it is first in line. Subsequent claims will be followed in the order they are posted. Claims to "Take it" can be conditional on unknowns such as shipping costs.
  • Any "PM sent" posts without posting a reason for the PM will be deleted as they are meaningless to anyone else reading the thread.
  • Once a deal is made, edit the title to say so and the thread will be locked

New in box, although the box is in poor shape. Box has been repaired since this picture was taken. This is the top of the line stereo decoder made to convert monophonic TV audio to stereo. Has a built-in 12-watt amp, dbx noise reduction and an auxiliary input. Also has volume, balance, bass and treble controls.
When it was introduced in 1986, the list price was $200. I'd like $20+ 11 pounds shipping from Naples, FL.

Perhaps a silly question: Would this also work for straight FM? (I.E., mono tuner)

No, I'm afraid not.
Television stereo is an entirely different animal. Similar principle, but the subcarriers are at different frequencies and bandwidths.

I once hoped i could use a FM stereo decoder to receive TV stereo. :(

I never thought of this, but at the very least it would make a nice little amplifier.

Ideal, I guess, for use in an old combo TV from the 50s-60s, or any big old console with dual speakers.

That would be a perfect use, and really make such a TV "sing"!
