I think these have a pretty small footprint for a home unit.

I have a car radio deck in my house hooked up to a Computer Supply Unit for a power source. Only problem is when I turn off the power supply, I lose my memory settings. Wondering if a dedicated Wall Wart Plug hooked up to the yellow wire on back of deck would work. I don't like to leave the Computer Power Supply on constantly because the fan would always be running.

Yes, any 12VDC source will work. The memory requires just microamps of current.

Denon TU260LII Boxed FM/AM Radio Hifi Separate | eBay

The above is the one I have, I bought new many moons ago.

Around $200 at the time, fairly budget but far more expensive ones
go for very little more used nowadays, and they are a world away
from car tuners with a good aerial, that is impossible for car use.

Used tuners are always very cheap, there is no demand.

rgds, sreten.

A lot cheaper from local shops dealing in used hifi, no postage.
