I require a stereo receiver with FM built-in and preferably a vintage one around 5k budget for my parents. It will be paired with my DIY Zaph audio book shelf speakers. Bangalore FMs can ping me as shipping is not an option/risk that I would like to take at this budget :)

The FM radio reception should be very good as thats the only source that they listen to 99% of the time. Presently they are using my Marantz PM6004 amp with a mobile phone FM radio which is not user friendly.

Thanks

Do not blindly trust every seller or buyer! Protect yourself by following the below safe trading tips.

Safety Tips

For Buyers

  1. Always meet the seller at a safe location and inspect the item before purchasing. Following this one rule will help you avoid most scams.
  2. Watch out for unrealistic offers. If it appears too good to be true, it probably is. Unrealistic offers are used to motivate purchasers to make hasty decisions.
  3. Always verify the seller's credentials. Ask the seller to provide a photo ID and proof of address.
  4. Ensure that the product you are buying is not stolen or fake. Always ask for a purchase invoice.
  5. The best way to transact is to collect the item and pay at the same time. Never transfer funds or use a debit/credit/atm card to pay someone you do not know before collecting an item.
  6. Ask for clear information on condition of the item, price, payment and delivery method.
  7. Use only those payment methods that you trust and are familiar with. Never give out your financial information.
  8. It is recommended to purchase items directly from the seller.
  9. Always test the functioning of the item before purchase.
  10. Do your research on comparative prices for the product.

For Sellers

  1. Try to take the full payment at the time of the delivery. Remember to use a safe location to meet.
  2. Watch out for fake currency and money orders. Be aware that banks will not honour fake currency/money order and will hold you responsible for it.
  3. Verify the buyer’s credentials if necessary.
  4. Ensure that your product meets the features you list in your ad to avoid any misunderstanding with the buyer.
  5. It is your responsibility to prove that the product you are selling is genuine and not stolen by providing the necessary proof of purchase.
  6. Do not share your financial information except the one required for payment.

Still looking at a good receiver/amplifier (vintage is also considered) with built-in FM/AM radio and the budget is slightly flexible. Would prefer a bangalore sale and avoid shipping at the time being.

Maybe this as an option? See post 5.

Seems to have good reviews. Available on eBay.

Thanks Rajiv but I was more looking at a stand alone receiver with in-built radio feature as I already have a pair of Zaph speakers. Wanted to replace the Marantz 6004 and mobile phone with a single device as my parents can use it without the need to have multiple different devices. With the above thats listed I think is more of a hand held radio with small speakers built-in similar to transistor I believe.

Oops! My bad. Somehow got the impression you were looking for a tuner.
