    I think people are making them into mini-bars...and fish tanks!

    Maybe an operational CRT - might only be good as a display piece, hooked to a disc player showing vintage 4:3.

    That sounds like an expensive, high-maintenance toy!

    Enjoying some down time in the basement space. Those rare evenings when my wife is tired from a long day at work and I can enjoy an hour of sweet tunes.

    Amen, brother. You know you are old and/or a music lover when you hope your wife goes to bed early.

    Man, the reason I love living where I do is because I've got three systems here. I can always find one spot to listen to my heart's content even when the wifey is zonked out elsewhere. I don't listen crazy loud but I've got an outside studio with some of my music gear (guitars, amps, keyboard), telescopes, books, a pool table, and sound system. It even has a small bar fridge. And since I added a wi-fi booster upstairs in the main house, I can get great wi-fi out there now. I can play as loud as I want in there and no one in the main house would hear a thing. Gotta love a country *estate*... ;)

    I can't help but thinking @MisterNines, that this must be a set from Forbidden Planet.

    You wouldn't happen to know anyone by the name of Dr. Morbius, would you?

    Very cool. Wikipedia says that Harris Armstrong was "...considered the dean of modernists active in St. Louis, Missouri." It does not reference this particular incident depicted in the photo, where his son was set upon by angry traditionalists.

    You should post this in the interesting facts about yourself thread. I’m sure it would be a hit.
     
  15. Which gives me the notion that some company could specialize in LCD replacements to fit in CRT places. But done in ridiculous way: only interlaced 480 panels that would pass VHS and DVDs natively, but dumb down HD to letterboxed SD. Good times. :D

    I think we can make an exception in this case:)
    I like that the thread blends audio systems and decor. As it should.

    Me, too. Some minimal routine maintenance required with vintage...but many joyous (or at least amusing) views.

    Seriously, I mostly listen to music on the '73 Rig - sometimes seems the only device not connected to the internet.

    I am a Blessed man.
