Besides my 60" Kuro plasma, I typically don't hold on to electronics over 5 years.
This Esoteric RZ-1 Preamp/DA/Amp/SACDPlayer in my office, is probably the oldest thing I have kept around.
Just added the Starpoint platform.

Lenz copper/tin cable. Produced early 1950 or so. Great for interlinks and speaker cable...

This is my current system that I've built up over the past few years and it sounds awesome. I'll start with the newest pieces first and work back to the oldest.

1983 Audio Research SP8 SII ver5 (was back to the factory in 2002)
1980 Denon AU-320 step up transformer (sort of guessing at the age here)
1978 JVC QL-A7 turntable fitted with a retipped Denon DL-103S
1971 HeathKit AS101 speakers (Altec Valencias in nicer cabinets and upgraded with Model 19 crossovers that I built)
1962 McIntosh MC 40 monoblocks (completely rebuilt and running vintage Sylvania power tubes and mostly Telefunkin signal tubes)

Even the digital part of my system is sort of old. Still sounds great though.

2006 Pioneer Elite DV-79AVi for those silver disc
1992 Parasound D/AC-1000 (two PCM63P-J chips)

Proves you don't need new to have an awesome sounding system. The main part of my system is pretty much set, the only thing I'm likely to change around is the turntable/cart/SUT combination.
Right now it sounds heavenly but I'm in the process of building my own SUT and I have two other Denon DL-103 carts to mess with, one stock and one with a hypereliptical in a wood body.
I also have several tonearms sitting here to try, need to build up a table for that.
