Do you mean the rows of dots or bars that go up and down when music plays?

Oh yes. They're quite fun. My Marantz receiver has a power draw meter - not quite the same, but still blinkenlights. Row of horizontal old-school square LEDs that light up in sucession to show how many watts the speakers are drawing. Much fun with music with lots of dynamic range and/or silent passages. *whisperwhisperBOOMwhisperwhisper*

Off topic, something I've always wanted to do was build a simple 5-band one out of LEDs and mount it in the case of a CMoy or other headphone amp. However, I fear the electronics necessary to build such a device would be horrendously complex.

Trip-arific iTunes visuals. Apparently really, really cool during highs, according to my friend. But I like them normally too.

A homebrew one shouldn't be too bad

My concern would be the current draw and battery life...

We need to turn Clark Griswold's house into a peak meter.
