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

    In my shop I have a Marantz 2230 with mahogany case from 1972-74. Feels like a time warp each time I turn it on. I have only owned it for 15 years or so but purchased it for the nostalgia. It plays through a pair of Radio Shack Minimus 7 speakers. I have a pair of Spica TC50's in storage that still sound amazing for what they were and cost.

    Since I replaced my original Momentum pre-amp with the new HD version my oldest piece of gear is now my Alexandria X2 S2's.

    Both my Empire 298 Turntable from 1962 and my HH Scott Stereomaster 272 from either 1961 or '62, not sure which.

    Audio Research SP-11, circa 1987. Getting ready to compare it to my ARC LS27 that's been running in my downstairs setup for the past 5 months. Should be an interesting comparison for me. Both are excellent sounding preamplifiers.

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

    One that I use as my main source component is my Ampex ATR-102 tape machine which dates from the late '70's, a bit older than my 40 year old daughter. My other ATR-102 dates from the same period, although I only use it for dubbing tapes. My prize collection of 200 reels of safety master tapes dates from the late '70's to late '80's. Next oldest, again in very frequent use when I am digitizing my analogue collection is my Pacific Microsonics Model Two which dates from the late '90's to about 2000. That puts it around the same age as my Avantgarde Duo speakers and Cary 2A3 Monoblock SET amps which drive them. I bought all of these used, starting about 12 years ago.

    Just picked up some Lowboy 3s from 1971 from the original owner. Sounding awesome.
