This piece is absolutely incredible! It is an impeccable piece of furniture to begin with, but the way the sound equipment has been updated is truly amazing. It sounds so good. The customer service was also great throughout- sent a detailed questionnaire about our music tastes & listening habits, kept us updated throughout about the status. Plus I had a small hiccup with setup when it arrived, & Steve even offered to FaceTime with me until we figured out exactly what was going on together. Basically, this piece is an investment, but WELL worth it!

This is just amazing. The furniture is beautiful, authentic midcentury in great condition. The work Steve did to replace all the components was slick. He kept me informed along the way as work was being done. It sounds amazing! The integrated ipad is a must. I was unsure but now that i have it it was worth it. Mostly I am still listening to all my old albums but occasionally i have used the blutooth to stream and love that it is all integrated. Can't really go wrong here- he does great work. thanks Steve!!

After I finally decided to upgrade my 1958 Magnavox console stereo I found RetroMod Radio who exceed all of my expectations from shipping my console to them, selecting the upgrade options I wanted and returning my console back to me with excellent quality components, fit and finishes were perfect. But that was just the start, once I turned on my new stereo and laid down new vinal on a modern turntable, I sat in my chair cracked up the volume and simply smiled. The sound reproduced via the needle or bluetooth emitting from my new hand but speakers perfectly amplified has completely brought back the long lost joy of actually sitting down and enjoying music again....just like It did when I was a kid! I thought long and hard about doing the work myself, Steve at RetroModRaidio got me over my apprehension and delivered!

About

Re-amped vintage radios to satisfy even the most distinguished ears and preserve the classic look.

WHO WE ARE:
https://youtu.be/_WUWL9thVgM

Retro Radio is a blissful culmination of mid-century beauty with state of the art technologies. Starting with a distinctive mid-century radio, the dusty internals that were designed to play AM radio stations are then removed; making way for high end audio amplifiers supplying as much as 200 watts (compare that to about 20-30 watts in the original amplifiers). Then, the old paper speakers are replaced with high power woofers and tweeters to bring your music alive!
Retro Radios can play any music you pump through them. Input devices such as iPhones, iPods, iPads, smartphones, laptops, MP3 player and anything with bluetooth. If you wish to listen to mid-century music as these beauties once played, there are a number of web based sources of radio players that can be played though your device as well. Volume and EQ settings are all controlled on your input device making it easy to adjust settings all in just place. Retro Radios allow you to enjoy Hi-Fi in high quality and high style that will satisfy even the most distinguished audiophile’s ears.

WHY OURS ARE UNIQUE:

Our stereos are different in that not only are they beautiful, they sound amazing! Our focus with building these beauties is the sound. The stereo itself is minimally restored and will have surface blemishes that would be expected from a radio that is over 60 years old!

Don't be fooled by the box stores radios with sub-par sound, or other radio restoration companies that only focus on Bluetooth while ignoring the sound quality. Retro Radio is the only company that doesn't cut corners to deliver the best sounding product.

Interesting fact: Our prices for the restored consoles are cheaper than the original when accounting for inflation. To top that our product is far superior, sounds better, easier to repair and upgrade, and will likely last longer than the original!
