Worldwide digital radio support!

               


        Aurora Design pioneered technologies like OEM quality radios, Bluetooth and USB for classic vehicles and while the competition scrambles to release out-of-date products, Aurora Design takes it to the next level leaving them in the dust!

   Aurora Design is now the only solution for your classic vehicle radio that offers Worldwide digital radio support. Offering HD Radio™ Technology for North America and DAB/DAB+ support for the rest of the world using a patented interface, once again Aurora Design technology makes the other guys “upgrades” look ancient by comparison!


Aurora Design radio conversions are NOT the same as other solutions on the market today. Our products are a no excuse, OEM quality that work exactly as you would expect. No low quality audio, radio stations drifting or dropping out, unintelligible Bluetooth phone calls, etc. You expect the same quality as found in your modern vehicle and that is what you get with Aurora Design products.


    The new FMR-3, FMR-DRH1, FMR-DRD1, BTU Smart-3, BTU-3, BTC-3, BTL-3, USB-3 and FMC-2 lead the industry in features, quality and value:


     Designed to OEM standards, using OEM components, just like your modern vehicle...

      Compare to the consumer level design and components of the competition. Aurora Design products use the same

     components found in many new automobiles and are designed to withstand faults like accidental battery reversal,

     direct shorts on the outputs, SAE transients, etc. Don’t try this with the competition or you’ll end up with a

     destroyed radio!


     Uses all the latest technology (BT 5.0, native AAC audio, USB)...

      Compare to the obsolete technology used by the competition (BT 3.0, no AAC, no USB). Only Aurora Design

     offers cutting edge technology! Just one listen to how your music sounds using native AAC versus the cheap SBC

     codec of the competition will convince you Aurora Design leads the pack!


     Worldwide digital radio support...

      No one else offers worldwide digital radio support! HD Radio™ Technology fully certified and licensed by

     iBiquity Digital Corporation for the highest compatibility and performance.  DAB/DAB+ utilizing a patented

     interface for Europe/Asia.


     Fully certified Bluetooth...

      Aurora Design only uses expensive, fully certified Bluetooth modules. Unlike cheap offshore modules that are not

     legal to use in most countries, Aurora Design Bluetooth modules are fully certified to FCC, CE, IC, MIC, KCC and

     Bluetooth SIG specifications. What’s in that aftermarket/reproduction radio?


     Fully modern Hands Free Phone integration...

       Compare to the basic phone handling of the competition. Aurora Design offers internal and external microphones

     so you can optimize the voice quality for your car. Features like call waiting and conference calling are standard.


     Voice Command and Voice Assist, pioneered by Aurora Design...

       Aurora Design was first to offer Voice Command and while the competition plays catchup, we’ve taken it to the

     next level with Voice Assist! Now your radio can talk to you to assist you with setup and operation.


     Unsurpassed sound quality...

       Compare the specs on Aurora Design products to any competitors (if you can even find their specs!) or aftermarket

     radio. With 45W/ch into four speakers (180W total) or 75W/ch into two speakers, (150W total) even small vehicles

     with room for only two speakers can have big sound! With a built-in equalizer and subwoofer control, the sound can

     be adjusted perfectly for your vehicle/speaker setup!


     Designed and built in the USA!

       Aurora Design products are designed and built in the USA and not just assembled here. Ask the competition how

     much is actually done in the USA on their products...

       

   Check out all the new products from Aurora Design and you’ll know why we lead the industry in innovation and quality, leaving the competition in the dust! While others may offer limited, outdated technology, only Aurora Design products offer full, modern features for your classic vehicle radio.


Your original radio converted to today's technology with Aurora Design products operates like a modern radio and looks original in your dash...

because it is original!
