I have been an on and off collector of vintage gear over the years. I'm in the off mode now mostly due to space constraints. I still have some older McIntosh pieces and a B&O linear tracking TT, but that about it. I've found modern gear to just sound better and be less of a maintenance hassle.

I'm out of the vintage game now but had a lot of fun and it helped me fund my current rig. I wasn't a flipper, I was a buy and try guy. If something I bought sounded better in my system than what I owned, it stayed and out went the other piece. I eventually decided to go with more current equipment but still have a small second vintage system with sentimental equipment. Ask me about the time I bought an EV Patrician though! On second thought, don't!!

One of my systems is vintage - a HH Scott 222C integrated, HH Scott 333 Tuner, Thorens 166 MkII Turntable/Signet TK7E cartridge, and a pair of ads L710 speakers.
