Apple Floppy Drive Reborn as an Amplifier [Casemod]
March 1st, 2008
Have some old computer gear lying around? Why not do what this guy did, and turn it into something useful once more.
By taking an old Apple 5-1/4″ floppy drive he found at a thrift store, then working some electronics wizardry on the interior, modder Jeff Kobi took this old piece of tech junk and gave it new life as a retro-styled amplifier.
At the heart of the revamped drive is the hacker’s favorite Sonic Impact 5066 T-amp, capable of cranking out amazing clarity and boldness with just 15-watts per channel.
