Description

The main goal with this build was to create a low power consuming piece of classic furniture that will keep my entertainment system looking clean and tasteful. It involved a lot of hacking, sawing, desoldering, curse words and beer. We both made it out the other side lookin' fine.

The rear is a nightmare to look at, but the main show is the front casing with the brushed aluminum, working power and "HDD" lights (I'm using the FM signal led for this). The power switch had to be installed upside down since I didn't want the hassle of hacking a momentary switch. I had to make decisions on the fly to complete the build in a unique case such as mounting the hard drives vertically and replacing the original bulb lighting with a low power LED strip.

I'd like to get an Arduino to make the knobs, switches, and FM quality gauge functional but as it is today I'm pretty dang impressed with it :)

Thanks! As of now it's almost done. I need to work out the power button and find a way to use the rear io without hacking the case :)

Really like the build, hope the receiver was dead before you did this. I still use a Technics SUG-70 paired with two Technics A51 speakers for music lol

I made sure to find a broken one. Also helped keep the cost down!
