But these hi-fi systems and table radios don't swap function for form: They sound every bit as good as they look. Now your only problem is getting the rest of your living room to look as groovy as your sound system does.

And if you just can’t give up your vinyl, go for the record carrier case. Jukebox-shaped CD players and novel wall and desk phones round out this evocative selection.
