    I own a number of tube tuners for the 1950's. I have four Fisher brand and a couple H.H. Scott. Also a Mac MR55 which is their first tuner. It is mono AM/FM with provision for adding a multiplex unit.

    Re: So how old is your "oldest" component?

    My oldest is an HH Scott 272 from 1960 with a Empire 398 turntable from 1963. I also have a pair of Cornscala's that started out as a circa 1981 Cornwall's and modified about 11 years ago. My newest is a Bluesound Vault 2 which is fantastic!!!
