:

Baffling your friends by having music come out of your furniture was a little-known 1970s thing.

Actually, making a hi-fi look like a dresser or buffet was very commonplace in the 60s and 70s. The idea was that your stereo fit in with the rest of your home furnishings (and at the time, tables and end-tables and such in one’s livingroom did look kind of like bedroom furniture). I know, it kind of smacks of putting woodgrain veneer on a videogame unit, but that was the idea.
