    I have an original copy of "Who's Next" on vinyl that I've had for a long time. Other than that, I have a Yamaha acoustic that was my first guitar from 1989.

    J-Man--in the mid 1990s I used to do the PR for Mission. Great speakers, great value. Every one I ever heard sounded like music and not "hi-fi" if you know what I mean.

    Cool!

    I know what you mean - they aren't the most transparent speakers ever, but they colour the music in a very pleasing way.

    I've got an early/mid 80's component stereo rig. Still works.

    Ooh, I almost forgot! I also have a Kuba Imperial console stereo from 1958/9/60-ish. Turntable/AM/FM/Shortwave. My wife got it at a flea market for $40. She phoned to ask if she should buy it, and I said only if she could get it home in the Ford Festiva. Man, does it surprise me what you can fit in a boxy little car!

    (BTW, it no longer works, but it has some cool tubes in it, including two Telefunken EL84s that are still good.)

    I still have the stereo I bought in 1974 when I was still in the Marines.

    strictly speaking, It would be either my Simpson VOM or some old decade resistance boxes...
