As I'm rapidly approaching 50, yes I know I only look like a 25 rear old lol, my Mrs has asked if there's anything I want for the GT. Has anyone got experience of the classic looking DAB radios on offer?

 

Was thinking parcel shelf mounted speakers with a DAB head unit, Thanks

My Riley is older than your GT but i’ve been looking at this stuff to keep it completely hidden. Would mean streaming radonthrough my phone but I do a lot of that anyway.

They have some nice looking dab stereos but can’t comment on the quality.

Those spindle mount ones are perfect for the look I was after, looks like my mrs will be getting stung for a couple of hundred quid lol.

There's a few retro looking ones on ebay/amazon for about 20 quid, but for that price I'd be better off singing lol

I would go for a fully hidden one. Using your phone as the head unit and Bluetooth to an amp.

Straight cuts Jimmy, best head unit you can have ;)

Has to be a centre rear shelf speaker surely, properly period along with the nodding dog

We've got a nodding Bob Ross, does that count?
