The Heathkit AJ-1510/1510A was a great tuner.
It still can be.
A creative original -- with great performance. The AJ-1510 and AJ-1510A were among first synthesized FM Stereo tuners to be introduced in the 1970s. Today, not only are these units nostalgia-inducing tuners of the golden audiophile era, they still have very respectable performance too.
Nothing lasts forever. The biggest problem in keeping these tuners operational is display failure. These units were designed before the advent of LED displays, and used a 7-segment filament-type display in a glass tube. Over time, the fragile filaments will break, causing one or more segments to no longer light. The original 7-segment tube displays are almost impossible to find.
Heathkit to the rescue. Of course. We have several of the AJ-1510 FM Tuners ourselves (really, you should see our museum), and to help keep them running, we designed a replacement display using newer LED-type displays. The modification consists of two boards that replace the existing driver board and displays.
We have what you need. Each kit contains all of the parts that you need to convert your AJ-1510 or AJ-1510A FM Stereo Tuner from the original displays over to modern LED displays. Ift is also possible to reverse the modifications and go back to the original displays, should you ever decide to do so. It takes about an hour to build the new kit and replace the old display board with the new one.
OK, let's check this thing out.
