Default 70s Intercom System

Just bought an older home from the early 70s. It has a working intercom system (radio, intercom, etc.). Any good ideas on what to do with it - leave it as is, replace the wall plates (not sure it can be done), use the wiring for in wall speakers, other thoughts?

Thanks,

Jeff

1. Replace the main unit with a big LCD screen and put a wireless video cam out front to see who's at your door.

2. Buy an FM transmitter for your ipod and tune your intercom to that station - unlimited music!

That's all I've got so far

Hey Jeff - I have one of these, too. I've been thinking about putting it a new stereo system just for fun... but don't know. Let me know what you do with yours. I need ideas. My house built in '89.

I used to have one of those at an old house. I upgraded the speakers and used it to listen to music. If everything works, you might consider upgrading the radio portion to a newer unit and maybe upgrading the speakers.
