CL Sound Machine
It's hard to say whether the CL Sound Machine is practical, or simply overkill, so I'll let you be the judge. It is a combination iPod docking station, record player, cd player and... wine rack? The triple format audio system is a fantastic idea. Not only does it give you the really interesting, old-fashioned look of a phonograph and the practical ability to play more modern forms of music, but it also allows you to relive some of the classics from the record collection that has been gathering dust in the back of your closet. The question is, is the wine rack necessary? If you have the room and money for this gadget (pricing available upon request), the chances are good that you're going to be able to keep the 12-bottles of wine that the CL holds in another location.
