Default Re: Bush DAC90 FM conversion.

If you are going to mess with a radio like this, then why not go the whole hog and fit a transistor module that does FM and bluetooth and has its own power amp. You could make it portable then and no worry about excess heat.

Hence the DAB90a link referred to earlier!

But, the easiest way to receive FM on a DAC90 is have an external FM tuner and feed a pantry transmitter. That's what I do - it covers the house well, and just extends to the garden.

If you want to be able to tune it, of course you need a tuner and pantry transmitter for each station. But, not expensive to set up...

Like my all-dry battery battery receiver a scrap DAC90 chassis will be used for the FM receiver. Just a fun project to get back to building radios again.
As for a cabinet to house the chassis there seems to be on sale cabinets in varies states of condition, some immaculate and others with cracks but repairable.

Doing a FM conversion with transistor or a pantry transmitter is too easy got to have valves & adapter plates
