Time warp....CD on a turn table (yup, I still have one and even use it often).

Wow! Dont try playing that thing. You'll destroy the disk and probably damage the stylus on the record player. It is an interesting contrast. It might be even more interesting the put the cd next to a 45 rpm record for a comparison of technology. That cd can hold about 65 minutes of hi quality music. The 45 rpm record holds two songs and plays about 3-5 minutes on each side, at low quality!

I will accept this photo since it meets the basic definition of the challenge but what I am really hoping to see is to take the object somewhere away from home and shoot in a strange context.

Innnovative idea. I think that's actually a master stroke in marketing retro equipment to new CD afficianados.

Instead of the arm with the needle there could be one which contains the laser to read the CD.
