I've decided to assemble again some sort of a DIY audio setup at home centered on the classic Pioneer KP-500 car stereo, the 80's iconic car stereo with a rotary dial for the radio tuner.
I still remember it uses an 8-track cassette player and a AN214 integrated circuit power amplifier with bass and treble controls with a silver front panel.
I looked online for such a dinosaur car stereo but the results were not so encouraging due to the price. I intend to visit Quiapo's Raon one of these days to look around and hope to score one. I would like the car stereo to be my centerpiece along with two Pioneer PT-6 tweeters (i used to have one of these but now probably rusty at in Paete, Laguna).
My ultimate plan is to modify the circuit to add an iPod input instead of the tape player. Who know's I can even add it to my car stereo :P
