Picture of Converting Old Radio into a Bluetooth Speaker

I had this cool looking Soviet Russian transistor radio Neywa 402 (made in 70s) on my shelf for a year. It was nice to look at and had a sentimental value but it didn't work. So I decided to give it a new life as a vintage bluetooth audio speaker.

Step 1: What You Need

You need:

A radio - You can make almost any radio to work with bluetooth but I think smaller is better.

A bluetooth speaker - I bought mine from ebay, they cost about 10 USD with shipping.

Ooh! I love it! Now I just need someone to get to do the wiry bits for me. I can see doing this with so many old school speakers, etc.

This project rocks. I have an old radio in my attic that I've held into for years, trying to decide what to do with it. Now I know!

Nice work!

This is so awesome. I love that you're able to take an old thing and redo it to make it useful to you in this day and age while still keeping the cool, vintage look!
