And the winner is m1ndtr1p! Thanks for all of the great entries, sorry it took this long to have the winner selected.

Winning entry:

“Come on guys, this is obviously the Zenith CD-D an antique CD writer/duplicator/player… You place the CD you want duplicated on the spinning table, set your read speed with the little tab furthest to the right, then the arm comes up and reads the CD and stores the data within. Then when it’s done reading, you replace the CD with a blank CD and set the write speed with the tab on the left… It works better reading and writing at 1x, and as a bonus, when reading, you can also listen to the CD, which is what the volume knob on the bottom is for, so it also contains a speaker and amp so you can listen to the CD.”
