View Full Version : A "now playing" Cd/Dvd display for home theater room

Is there a Cd/Dvd rack that incorporates a 'now playing' slot (slots) for placing the jewel case of the disc that is currently in the player? Seems like a good idea especially for a home theater room.

There is an interesting Cd storage / display option at www.CDshowplace.com

Try Aaron Bros, Michaels or similar arts and crafts stores. You will find a small plactic or wood stand used to hold small framed photos or objects d'arte....

I made a few of my own while working as a Toolmaker and had access to machines. I have a pic somewhere. I machined them out of alluminum bar stock, radiused all the top and verticle corners and machined a slot in the top lengthwise at 15 degrees wide enough for a CD case. I then used a CNC machine to mill in the "Now Playing" lettering which I filled with black high gloss paint.I tried to get my past company to try and market them in small quantities in the local Stereo shops but they were too stuborn. So many people have brought this up.
