You could either junk your obsolete CD player or give it a full makeover like this elaborate project by Russian site Steampunker. The player was stripped down to its innards and transplanted into a custom retro-styled chassis crafted out of wood and brass. Special touches such as analog dials and matching legs were also added.
To complete the audio system, a pair of PC speakers was given a similar overhaul in a vintage-looking cabinet for handling sound reproduction. Instructions for assembling this contraption are available here.
