Way back in 1972, my first major audio purchase as a wee lad:

AR xA turntable. Wish I still had it.

My first "high end" component was a pair of Bose headphones that I got for Christmas in 2012. Those headphones launched me into the world of head-fi and up the ladder of headphones, amps, and DACs and eventually into the world of 2-channel audio.

A pair of Phase Technology euro series bookshelves that had generic replacement drivers. Oh well, I've moved on to better things!

The first piece I actually liked (and still have) was a few months later; a Technics SA-203. I think that receiver is what hooked me on vintage gear.

Hey, it was high end compared to the other stuff I had at the time!
