Default a tuner for $1.64 to rework and case

I found this http://www.circuitcity.com/ssm/Audio...oductDetail.do
(in-store special i $1.64). The tuner section is decent, labeled and easy to add rca plugs. Recased, I think it will make a nice enough tuner. For those,who has the Accurian amps this should be right up your alley

will post pictures later

I started taking the dock apart. this is what I find so far

the dc from the radio section is below .2mv both channels

The output impedance is about 7.5k

cutting the top led(I,only use the bottom),will cut some of the brightness but you will still need to add resistors.

Cutting four wires and adding RCA plugs is all you need to connect the tuner.

BTW the bass boost button causes some weird mono so you won’t be able to use it and keep the output in stereo

Next I will find and change the coupling cap.
