Retrosound makes kits with faceplates and knobs that match the interiors of a wide range of classic vehicles. Please enter your vehicle information to find the faceplate kit for your classic car. If your vehicle doesn't appear in our database, call us at 1-888-955-6000 so we can find the right kit for your dash.

This digital media receiver will not play CDs. If you want to play CDs in your vehicle, we offer a wide selection of CD receivers.

Old school looks, new technology

Retrosound's Zuma digital media receiver matches the look and fit of the factory radio in your vintage vehicle, yet allows you to enjoy your iPod®, satellite radio, or other portable music players in your classic ride. You can mount this receiver in almost any classic car, using an ingenious adjustable shaft system that adapts to any dash opening. And the Zuma is available in black, chrome, or ivory, so you'll have a perfect match for your classic car's interior. (Note: the Zuma does not play CDs.)

Connect your iPod, MP3 player, or satellite radio

The Zuma may look like an old-fashioned radio, but it offers all the modern conveniences. You'll find two rear auxiliary inputs to accommodate your iPod, MP3 player, or portable satellite radio, plus you can load a thumb drive full of music into the rear USB input for non-stop music on those long trips to car shows. The Zuma also offers excellent AM/FM reception, and will display song titles from any radio station that's broadcasting RDS text information. Retrosound offers a 2-year warranty on the Zuma to all Crutchfield customers. - See more at: http://www.crutchfield.com/p_068ZUMAC/Retrosound-Zuma-Chrome.html#sthash.meS4zJEh.dpuf

Free vintage-look screen protectors included

Your RetroSound Zuma includes three clear plastic screeen protectors with old-school "radio dial" numbers. They'll add style to your receiver while still allowing you to see the digital numbers behind the graphics. They're easy to apply, they look great, and they'll help prevent scratches and everyday damage. You'll get three distinct designs that blend right in with your car's interior.

More power to you

Don't have room in your classic car for an outboard amplifier? You can still add some serious power to your RetroSound receiver by adding their Quad4 amplifier, which delivers 45 watts RMS by four channels to your speakers. The super-compact amp plugs into your radio's harness and, in most cases, can be powered from your fusebox, so you'll save a lot of time and effort on the installation.  

iPod note: If you're going to use your iPod with this receiver, be sure to check "Details" for compatibility information.

    This unit was everything it was advertised to be. I couldn't be happier with it. Installation was a snap and it fit in my 64 Impala's opening perfectly. Directions were clear and all the wiring was labeled when received which was great. I highly recommend this unit and also purchasing it from Crutchfield. Their technical support was excellent for the few questions I had.

    Pros: No need to cut my dash. Sounds great. Everything it was advertised to be.

    Cons: No complaints.

    This is exactly what I was looking for. I wanted to replace the broken radio/tape deck in my 1979 Pontiac Firebird, but I did not want to cut the virgin dash. I opted to buy the retrosound zuma radio, so I can play music through a hidden thumbdrive. I have installed quite a few radios over the years, but I would have to say this particular one was the most difficult,. It has so many options with the adjustable shafts, that you have to get it EXACTLY right as far as the spacing, left to right, and up and down. But once you get it dialed in it does fit perfect and sound great. I would recommend putting aside a whole day, as it took me about six hours for me to be satisfied with the results. Also, I had to order a different face-plate as the radio nose would no fit through the opening. I ordered a replacement face-plate and it fit the opening perfect, so it looks like a factory installation. The radio looks vintage, but has plenty of power to rock your ride. I would recommend buying several thumb drives and treat them as CD's, copying one alblum to each thumb drive. If you load them all on one thumb drive, you can not view all the different artist folders, you have to keep going to the next track, which can take FORVEVER. All in all I really like the looks and function of the radio after you get in installed.

    Pros: Looks vintage, plenty of power, thumbdrive input cable

    Cons: tricky to install and get to look just right

    Zuma for 1962 Corvette

    The Retrosound Zuma fit perfect into my '62 Corvette. The unit was shipped with the 1958-60 Corvette knobs from Retrosound but Crutchfield corrected that and sent the correct '62 knobs.

    Pros: Looks as close as possible to the original Wonderbar radio with the chrome push buttons. The USB flash stick allows thousands of songs to be stored in a folder format which can be scrolled up/down. Shipped directly fromRetrosound very quickly.

    Cons: ensure the proper install knob kit is ordered. Other than that I'm happy with the Zuma Retrosound.

    Almost great

    I really like the USB input. PROBLEM: the display works fine at night or in the garage, but can't be seen in the daylight - which is when I mostly use this 62 TBird. I've talked to the manufacturer and they will look at it if I ship it back at my expense. I am afraid that it will be bench tested (inside the shop of course) and it will appear to work well and I'll have wasted my time and money. I'm living with it as it is, but not liking it. As long as I set it on the program I want before I back out of the garage it is fine.

    Customer Update 9.11.2014: The longer I live with the dim display the more disgusted with it I get. It is close to useless in daylight. The manufacturer should have done a quality check on it before it was shipped. If they did then their quality program stinks; if they did not then their quality program stinks. I do not see any way I can get what I paid for having to deal with Retro Sound

    Pros: It plays songs and stories from the thumb drive and remembers where you left off so you can pick it up next time you start the car.

    Cons: The dim display when in daylight makes the clock function useless. You can't read it to see time or program/channel. Also the sound balance is strange. I placed the rear speakers under the front seats and the balance has to be 95% rear to hear them.

    Although it looks nice and belongs in the car, I am not happy that the knobs are too loose of a fit around the shafts. They rattle and make noise. Also, operating instructions are not well written and hard to follow.

    Pros: Looks like it was from the era of my classic car, 71 Camaro

    Cons: knobs seem too loose, rattle when driving car.

    Purchased this unit to replace the factory AM radio in my '68 Ranchero. Installation, assembly and wiring instructions were straight forward and easy to follow. Assembly of the unit is fairly easy, installation is another matter. Getting the unit aligned properly for installing into a 68/69 Ford Torino/Ranchero/Fairlane is a chore to say the least. I probably spent 6-7 hours adjusting and aligning the stems and adjusting the plastic washers (supplied) in order to get the unit installed just right so it looked as factory as possible and stayed secure in the dash. Anyone who has done audio these model of cars will know exactly why.

    Once I had the unit installed, wiring in the unit was very easy, two wires to the fuse box and ground and the unit powered right up. To get the unit checked, I used to built in wiring harness to check the sound and using the built in amp to two speakers the sound quality is pretty decent. USB sound is pretty good as well reading from a USB stick. I will be changing this out to couple the unit with a JLAudio two channel amp for the rear and using the built in for two speakers I'll be installing in the dash speaker space in the future.

    I do recommend reading the usage manual closely as the unit has lots of functionality to handle with 4 knobs. The unit looks nice, the green LED display goes well with the rest of the dash lights (standard 60's Ford green) and everyone who's checked it out says it looks like it's a factory unit.

    Pros: Decent sound Easy to connect Nice looks Easy to read display mucho sound quality adjustments

    Cons: Tedious install (at least for a 68 Ford Torino) Your experience may vary

    Original radio has been long gone for many years in my '69 Camaro. Tossed around many scenarios as to how to replace it, including mounting a DIN unit in my glove box and covering factory location with "radio delete" cover. Finally opted for the Zuma, as it offers traditional AM/FM, plus aux. and USB inputs. This is a show quality car, so I didn't want to hack the dash in order to have tunes. The Zuma fits the bill perfectly. Very slick how brackets and controls mount to the main body of the unit and give adjustment needed to align everything with factory in-dash openings. Modern technology allows for unit to be very small in comparison to an original radio, and this makes for very easy work under and behind the dash during installation.

    Pros: Ease of installation. Size of unit. With supplied vehicle specific faceplate trim piece and knobs, unit looks killer. Very easy to use controls and menus.

    Like everyone with a old car built when Dash boards where made of metal getting a radio that would fit was impossible.This radio ended that search and it actually looks like a old style radio.The sound quality is very good and the price was okay.It took me less then 20 minutes to set up the radio to dash fit and another 20 minutes to wire it up.How to operate the radio takes very little time before knowing what operates what and how.I got a lot of thumbs up when other hot rod guys heard it and liked what they seen.The quality of the radio is very excellent and now I can hear more then just the engine roar in my 68 camaro.

    Pros: Easy to install radio,sound of the radio,looks great,rca jacks and usb with a long cord

    Cons: Face plate being plastic and not metal makes fit less then perfect leaving a gap.Wood grain in wrong direction

    Bad start, the first unit did not work, of course that was AFTER it was installed. Unit 2 once it got to me works and seems to be ok so far (day 3). The fit, the look is outstanding. The owners manual clearly states you should have the unit installed by a professional, I did and incurred twice the cost because if the defective unit, no compensation from Crutchfield.

    Pros: Great look for the vintage Corvette

    Cons: Price was high given the overall power and functions

    Installed in 1967 Camaro. Looks pretty good. Install took longer than expected but went OK. Plastic face plate was the only part that was "off" a little. The depth of the knob recesses is 1/16" off and the face does not fit flush with the dash. I would put the value around $180 which is less than it sells for. I was willing to pay the extra just for the look it has in the dash. The features and quality are just OK for the price. I really don't know how much the radio contributes to the sound coming from the Retrosound R410N speaker which I ranked as middle of the road. My wife will never remember what to twist or push to get to all the features. This is a necessary evil to keep the radio looking "retro" and clean in a classic car. All in all glad I purchased it and everything works well enough. Only other comment would be that the knobs are sensitive so you have to be careful when adjusting volume or you'll change modes.

    Pros: Looks good. Installed fairly easily.

    Cons: Lots of functions controlled from only a few knobs.

    Great sounding radio and looks almost original in my 1970 GTO, you have to really look close to notice its not. I love the FM HD capability, also the fact that it displays the road closed, road repair warnings on the digital display screen. Couldn't be happier, would buy again.

    Pros: very well thought out so it fits probably most any car that needs a 2 shaft radio.

    Cons: takes a little time to fit to dash at first.

    Since there are not other options for an up-to date radio to fit in the stock location for a '66 VW Beetle, I had to go with the RetroSound line. At the time when I was ordering, the Zuma Radio was listed on the Crutchfield site that it didn't fit, despite what the information was on the RetroSound Company page. I contacted Crutchfield by phone to place my order to make sure all discounts and hardware were applied to my order.

    The installation was a tedious process of test fitting, removing, adjusting, test fitting, removing, etc. Once it was finally in there, it looks great and matches my factory trim (with the added faceplate hardware). My only gripe about the quality is that the faceplate is plastic and I had to be especially careful during the installation process.

    The wiring was pretty straight forward as any other radio and at this time I only installed the two 6 3/4" Front Kick Panels and enclosed retrosound speakers. I will eventually upgrade to a pair of 6X9s in the back and a subwoofer. In the driveyway, the radio sounds great, especially when I found the LOUD setting. The speakers that came with the kick panels are not the best as far as mid and high, especially with the radio preset EQ. If you turn DSP OFF, you can adjust Bass and Treble, but no Mid. I really like having the USB connector and the two AUX connectors. The USB will keep it's memory after the key is shut off, so that it won't go back to track 001 when it is turned back on.

    Pros: Sleek design, custom hardware to meet the user's needs, USB and 2 AUX imputs, RCA out. Price less than direct from the manufacturer.

    Cons: Other radios in the same price range have better options, but this is the only radio that will fit in the stock location without modification. Retrosound 6 3/4" speakers are so-so and do not compliment the head unit.

    Shaft-Style Radio
    Variety Of Sources

    Shaft-Style Radio

    Infinimount Shaft/Bracket System: The Infinimount Shaft/Bracket System allows you to mount the Zuma radio in a variety of classic cars. This is because the shaft-knobs are not mounted to the unit, but instead connect to the unit via a harness so you can space the radio's shaft knobs at various distances (0.3125"-2.1875") from the chassis of the radio, using the supplied side-mount brackets. You can move these brackets forward or backward and move them in any direction. You can even cut, trim, or bend the brackets if needed. This shaft-style radio is a true problem solver for tough to fit applications due to its unique bracket system combined with small mounting size.

    Available Installation Kits: There are multiple vehicle specific faceplate & knob kits available (sold separately), as well as an universal faceplate that fits the Zuma which allows you to use the integrated break away tabs to modify all aspects of height & width of the plate, and even drill in your own shaft holes to fit virtually any car.

    Note: The RetroSound Zuma does not come with a faceplate or shaft-knobs. A universal mounting kit or vehicle specific mounting kit will be needed for installation. Click here for a list of available installation kits.

    Front-Panel LCD (w/ switchable illumination): The RetroSound Zuma features a front-panel LCD with a digital read-out. You can switch between a Green or White backlit display. The unit's display offers an ultra-wide, off-axis viewing angle and is daylight compatible. The LCD will display clock, tuner or track information. The unit will even display MP3/WMA track names.

    Variety Of Sources

    RDS AM/FM Tuner: The Zuma features a built-in RDS AM/FM tuner. The Radio Data System (RDS) feature displays radio broadcast information such as artist & track information when listening to compatible AM/FM stations. The unit's tuner features 3 FM bands and 2 AM bands. A total of 30 AM/FM presets can be stored manually or automatically. Select between Local and Distant settings can aid in listening to weak FM radio stations or compensate for stations that have too strong of a signal. This unit's tuner can be set to USA or European tuning.

    Rear-Panel USB Port: The RetroSound Zuma features a single USB (type-A) port connected to its rear chassis by a 40" pigtail, so you can plug in your USB flash/thumb-drive (up to 32GB). Once you've connected your USB flash/thumb-drive, the Zuma will find your songs instantly and automatically start playing them. You will be able to control basic playback functions of your music files such as Play, Pause, Skip Track, Intro Scan, Repeat Track and Random. This unit supports the following music files via a USB flash/thumb-drive in format FAT and FAT32; MP3 (128 kbps or more recommended) and WMA (64 kbps or more recommended). The unit can recognize a maximum of 999 songs/files (files will be read in order of creation and not alphabetically or numerically). The Zuma also supports MP3/WMA song information.

    Note: The USB port is not compatible with the Apple iPod, iPhone, or iPad. You cannot connect a USB device via a USB hub or Multi-Card Reader to this unit.

    Dual Auxiliary Inputs: The universal shaft-style receiver features two 3.5mm auxiliary inputs connected to the rear chassis by 7" pigtails. The Aux inputs provide a connection for portable external audio sources such as a MP3 player or  CD player.

    Audio Section

    MOSFET Amplifier: The Zuma is equipped with a 25 watts x 4-channel RMS (50 watts x 4-channel Peak) MOSFET amplifier.

    4Ch/2.85V RCA Outputs: The universal shaft-style receiver has two pair of 2.85-volt RCA outputs (Front/Rear). Each RCA output is connected to the unit's rear-chassis by a 8" pigtail.

    EQ Presets: You can select between four EQ preset modes (Classic, Pop, Rock, or Off/Flat)

    Bass & Treble: The Bass adjustment function allows you to boost or cut the low frequencies from -7 to +7. The Treble adjustment function allows you to boost or cut the high frequencies from -7 to +7.

    Loudness: This function boosts bass and treble at low listening volume (this feature should be turned off at higher volumes).

    Balance & Fader Control: The Balance adjustment function allows you to adjust or pan the stereo sound from the left or right; this is helpful to compensate for the position of the driver in relation to the speaker locations. Adjustment range is 0 to 12. The Fader Control allows you to fade the sound from the front pair of speaker to your rear pair of speakers. Adjustment range is 0 to 12.

    Turn-On Volume: You can set the Zuma to power-on to the same volume level (0-46) every time, or let it default to the last volume when turned off.

    Audible Confirmation: You can turn the units audible confirmation (beep tone) On or Off.
