Old NuTone 3-wire intercom radio

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Is there any affordable way (rental house) to use this system with digital content? I was thinking of running a the second zone from my receiver to this and piping it through the house using the existing wire. It's a just a temporary solution. Is this possible?

Thanks in advance

Does the unit have an audio input? I'd think either directly connecting a Sonos (if there's an input), or a Sonos plus a personal FM transmitter (if no input).

No Audio input (at least on the outside) It's pretty old. I didn't think of a transmitter, that might be the way to go. Great idea.

That's pretty old. Does it still work well enough?

You may just want to consider 2-3 zones of Sonos.

It works great actually. I just want to get rid of the radio and or update it using the existing wiring while not spending a ton of money.

Yeah, just an FM transmitter, one Sonos box, set up a Pandora 80's mix channel and it'll be just like new!

Maybe you can hang an old, beat up, cardboard box over the master controller, so it will look nicer.

Or a museum plaque next to it explaining its historical significance...

Been very tempted to put one of these up in the back yard:

Why not replace the master unit with a new Nutone model? The NM100 will work with the 3 wire and has 2 inputs to add to the tuner.

Ha! This gave me a good laugh. Too bad it's not like the hot tub time machine

I'm pretty sure if I push it hard enough it will just fall in the wall. At that point I can probably tie cans to each end of the wires and just have the intercom! Man I hate renting.

If it wasn't a rental I would put some money into it but I wouldn't throw anyone more money at this place. If I could take the nm100 with me and know that I would use it, it would be a great suggestion so thanks.

Sorry, I didn't see that it was a rental home.

In full disclosure, my old, unused, dead M&S intercom looks similar, and I own my house.

Just waiting for the kitchen remodel to start.
