Old School vs. New School A V for the Coctail Lounge Living Room. Status: Pop in an 8 Track and Watch the Party Break Out!


For this evenings Lounge entertainment we have Vinyl, 8 Track tape, Cassette tape, Radio (NPR Mostly!), CD, MP3, and DVD. Name your Poison!

All of this is Second Hand one way or another. The Numark DJ turntable came

for Two Bucks!

might keep.

paid more for the 8 Track tapes sittin' there!

suspension ring was rotten out of both drivers. I'm still looking for replacements

to restore the Boom Box to it's former glory. For now, it drives the Audio center

here. It's not terribly powerful but I'm not running a Discotheque or anything!

When I find replacement drivers for the speakers I'll replace this with a proper



This fruity PC (get it...Apple?) was another C-list find. It ain't no giant screen DVD

but it looks cool and plays my movies for entertaining during Cocktail Hour. Of

course it plays CDs and MP3s as well. Plus, did I looks cool.
