I'd rather have a new, hi res TV than the best built old monster of decades past. Come to think of it, I prefer new audio gear too!

Well Erik I prefer my

1958 Harman Kardon Stereo Festival 20 valves receiver,

I prefer it so much that I got two of them, although in Europe they are as rare as the Blue Mauritius stamps. Five of them are known in Europe, two of them are mine.

Nice one! These are mine. The green is darker in reality, I painted the enclosure in the green that was usual in the fifties.

Yes, I restored it and refinished the case, the Turntable is a Yamaha PX-2 linear and cassette deck below is a Yamaha K-1000.

The pictures on the walls represent four generations from our grandparents to our granddaughters. They continue right around the playroom, we have maybe 12 linear feet of blank wall left.
