Panasonic RE-7412 AM FM Multiplex Stereo Receiver

I’ve owned this Panasonic RE-7412 AM FM Stereo Receiver since the days when I was much younger. About 7 or 8 years ago I went looking for information about this model. Since I haven’t used it for several decades I was looking to sell it. Of course I wanted to know what I had before doing that. From what I found this morning it doesn’t look like this Panasonic Receiver is worth much money. There is one on sale at that popular online auction house for $49.99. Although mine needs a bit of cleaning. I think it’s in better condition than the one I saw for sale.

I hadn’t plugged this stereo in since the last time I went looking for information on it. When I gave it a test this morning the receiver turned right on like it was new out the box. So my RE-7412 is still in working order. There is some gunk under the left knob and dust that has collected needing cleaned up. In the picture the gunk looks like rust. That isn’t what it is. There are a few minor scratches by the knobs from use.

Just plugged this Panasonic Receiver into my computer speakers using an adapter. The audio works just as well as it did years ago.

This product was Made in Japan by Matsushita Electric Industrial Co., Ltd. There is a serial number but no date of manufacture located on the bottom of this unit.

  1. I haven’t had a set of speakers connected to that receiver in years. Last time I tested it I used a headset. Years ago any standard speaker set would work. As long as the speakers had the proper connecting wire. I’d assume nowadays that type of connection would be outdated.

  2. My older brother had this receiver in his room when I was a little kid. I think my parents bought it for him. I’d guess he was 18 and I was 10. I used to love to play around with it (when he wasn’t home!), and especially liked the illuminated round green dial, which I thought was totally cool.. It came with speakers included as a bundle, I believe the year was 1972. I completely forgot about it until seeing one for sale on eBay today. Looking at it brings back memories.. But just seeing pictures I think is enough for me.. Don’t know if I’d buy one just for “old times sake”.. I don’t remember the sound quality being that great.. It’s just one of those things that creates a warm feeling inside when I look at it– A reminder of when I was a kid just getting into stereos, all sorts of music, and when times were simpler and, possibly, better.

  3. I really need to do a video of this radio – just haven’t gotten around to it. That would offer a much better visual quality.
