Vintage Look Media PC From an Old Laptop
Nice Instructable! I made a portable stereo which is similar to your stereo. I started with a computer power supply (PS) but changed to a 12 volt DC PS. The fan on a computer PS can be noisy and I leave the power on constantly to save the settings on the car stereo. I guess it depends on how you use your creation. Search this site for jogema (my user name) to see how a car stereo is utilized to play mp3 and bluetooth on an 20 year old home stereo not having the more recent technology.

Yes an inexpensive car stereo is my choice for creating a home stereo component. Step 2, above, explains the criteria for the car stereo in more detail. The goal was to create a home stereo component that's as easy to use as a CD player or tape deck. A car stereo, whether a media player or CD, have many more features than any other method of playing digital tunes on a home stereo receiver and at much lower cost. Good luck and post to this instructable with any questions.
Sorry I don't know who the original designer is, a class mate in high school told me.
This design won an award for innovative paper planes in the mid 70s. I've shown this to my kids and co-workers for years. Great Instructable, well written directions are easy to follow.
