To me a lot of it sounds better then the new stuff. like speakers. good speakers that were like 500 to 1000 dollars back in the 70's threw the 90's seems to sound better then the stuff that runs like 2000 to 3000 in todays dollars. and you can pick them up for next do nothing. Like i took a pair of vintage pioneer to the local hi fi place looking for a receiver. I wanted to hear how they sounded using my speakers the guy let me bring them in. They nocked the guys soxs off when he heard them. It sounded better then the speakers he was selling for 1000's of dollars.

Guess you didn't read the Classic speakers thread.

I'm listening to my 35 year old JBL Decade L36's right now on my second system......

I had no idea you were that old... :whistling:

Maybe we could start a vintage member area... uh... errr... I mean a vintage forum area. What year or age would you consider equipment to be vintage?

I use to own several pieces of what I would call vintage McIntosh gear. I always admired that stuff, but ended up selling it. I remember I sold an MC250 amp for about what it sold for new.
Here's a pic of that gear from way back when... three pieces of older gear... then a newer (at that time) amp on the bottom.
