Superstar 360FM Purchase, What Version Is This One?

Post by skiman1 » 26 Aug 2018, 02:51

Hey gang, I just bought a very nice condition Superstar 360FM radio from eBay and has a 95001048 Serial.
Can anyone shed any light on this version? See attached pix, super nice condition, figure I would take a chance on it, thanks! Steve

Nice buy Steve.

It's a very late 360FM made in the Philippines (you'll notice there's no "TAIWAN R.O.C" stamp on the back).

Check the PCB number. It may well be a PB010/AC variant.
Never, ever, ever....bloody anything ever!

Far too many radio's to list here. But I do own a legal one...

Has that later version got a whiter-looking front panel, or is it just the lighting (or my eyes ;) )?

Nice radio! All my SS360FM work excellent. No difference between Taiwan or Philippins made. But nearly all versions with the grey YEC Capacitors inside need a recap. They seem to dry out and loose capacity. A full recap will bring back better sound and stability.

Thank you guys, much appreciate all the info, hopefully its in working order as it was sold as parts not working, but from non-radio type seller who doesn't know anything about the gear, fingers crossed, will give an update how she does when she arrives. Cheers!
