My stereo needs more blinkenlights. Point me to some neat projects I can do.

I recently refurbished a Marantz 2220B amplifier/tuner to go with my Thorens turntable. Right now it has an iPod dock and the turntable hooked up to it, but that's it, and it's kind of bland.
I have a tape monitor output and I'd like to build something that can use this to do something and sit on top of the amp.
I have several scavenge-able old units (cd, dvd player, old amplifier) to house the flashy thing. I know my way around a soldering iron, bread board and a Mouser catalog. But: I'd prefer to avoid anything that requires programming or LCD screens (given the old-school vibe of the current setup).
So point me to some neat projects so whilst I sit and listen, my eyes can rock out too.
