I can have truly "vintage" gear
sorry, i had to chuckle when i read that.
to think right now, that our SACD players will be "vintage" when we are old men, its just funny. our grandkids will have ipods the size of nickels, and cell phones will be obsolete cause they can just implant receivers and transmitters in our heads. and we can all get together, in someones basement, and pull the crumbling, dusty blanket back from our 'old school' system. and there lies, my trusty 563A. it was a classic!!!
thanks for the laugh player!!
