This stereo system from Japan’s Amadana may look like something out of the 1970s, but it’s actually quite contemporary under the hood.

Don’t let the decidedly old school design of this car radio fool you. Beneath its surface, the Becker Mexico 7948 radio is loaded with modern technology. While it might look like a radio from the 60’s or 70’s, the Becker Mexico has a plethora of tricks up its sleeve.
