    Could we add a section dedicated to older equipment. I spent about $10K on my system about two years ago and am very happy with the equipment I have. Trouble is now my equipment is two years old and would probably have long been scrapped by most people here. Advice, tips, tweaks, and general conversation about ancient 2 year old equipment is a very scarse. Just an idea.

    Ken,

    I think that you will find plenty of people on our forum that would still have the same gear as you, or would be able to carry out lengthy posts regarding your gear. Give it a try. 2 year old gear is not that old.

    I agree with Steve-- much of my gear is 2+ years old, and I've never had trouble finding help. If you're having trouble it might have more to do with your particular gear not having many owners who hang here- which happens from time to time... but I don't think it is due to any bias towards newer gear.
    Whoops, I dropped my hat... off to upgrade.

    The spring wind-up mechanism on my vintage Victrola just broke. I posted in "Audio/Video Sources," asking where I could find a replacement spring, and no one was able to help. Damn. I have no way of being able to listen to my shellac 78s. Double damn.

    Jack, have you tried the vintage board on Audio Asylum?
