This is a great look for a receiver it adds a great techy type of decoration to your stereo

a power supply and controller for the light strips/bars (ikea dioders include power supply and controller)

a stereo reciever with feet approx. an inch in hight (i owned a yamaha RS-202BL)

glue dots

Step 3: Press 3 of the 4 of the Light Bars Face Up As Shown in These Spots on the Bottom of the Reciever

    Covering up the holes for the air to circulate could lead to problems.

    true but even at extreme volumes this system wont warm up, and this does not take up much room at all allowing air to flow around the lights and through the open ports

    That's a good way to add a little light without it being too bright :)
