Old TV set becomes a YouTube Portal

This is a wonderful fetish: old TV sets are undoubtedly cool, especially made with hardwood paneling and stuffed with state-of-the-art circuitry inside. We've received pictures of the case mod, made from a Soviet TV set REKORD, 1961.
A sound engineer from Netherlands installed a custom-built sub-woofer and speakers with motion sensitive cream-coloured LEDs to imitate the flickering of TV lamps.

Vintage Microphones are cool-looking, too. See how it's been transformed into PC case here:
