If you simply want to be able to use your mobile or iPod as an input to your radio, the AUX-1 is an elegant solution. Far better than the cheap conversions where the radio still plays in the background, this upgrade is a properly engineered electronic switch that results in pure clear sound from your radio’s speaker.
The AUX-1 is a microprocessor powered Auxiliary Input controller that simplifies adding an audio input to original radios. It has three triggers that can be used independently or in any combination to switch the radio over from normal operation to the auxiliary input. The three triggers are a VOX, power cycling and a switch input. The VOX circuitry and algorithms are based on the superior VOX implementation of the FMR-2 radios. It is extremely sensitive and extremely good at rejecting noise. This results in no switching back to the radio during quiet audio passages.
The audio output level from the AUX-1 is very high to match the levels of early valve radios. Whereas directly connecting an MP3 player to the audio amplifier on some valve radios results in low volume and poor performance, the digitally controlled amplifier on the AUX-1 easily matches the levels of any radio.
Full protection against reverse battery and over power, the AUX-1 is nearly indestructible. Through clever design, the AUX-1 is compatible with 6V/12V positive/negative ground radios resulting in only one board being required for all installations.
This conversion is mono only.
