Leo describes his old timey conversion: "1957 Magnavox mahogany television console with new tv installed and bottom grill area converted into media storage. Controlled via remote. Largest knob areas used as speaker locations. Patina finish. "
We're thinking a PC or Mac home theater PC unit integrated into an old fashioned wood TV cabinet (here's one available on eBay for $50) would be a great fit too; throw in a LCD, add a couple of additional drives, and connect with a media center streamer like the Popcorn Hour A-100 and you've got an interesting way to stream and control your media.
Oh, and we love how he's included a disclaimer that "No antique television parts were discarded in the making of this piece. "
