sam444 - I was surprised at how little all the old stuff was worth

My "component rack" included a Denon integrated amplifier, a Teac twin cassette player, a Sony 5 CD carousel player and a Kenwood AM/FM radio tuner. This was all housed in a big old (and extremely heavy) wooden entertainment unit which also contained a TV set, VCR, and DVD player. This monstrosity was framed by 2 sets of big old Koss and JBL speakers. Once I realized that these things were more of a disposal issue than an asset, I measured return versus effort and made a deal with two guys who had a pick up truck and strong backs to haul it all away for a token sale price.

The digital media world is so much more convenient. . . this blog will have a few more posts elaborating on that idea.

Kabu - to a great extent I feel much the same way

The one reality shaping my actions however is an inevitable move to smaller accomodations. The old electronic stuff we had kicking around simply took up too much space. Drawers and bookcases full of tapes and DVDs etc. have been condensed to the equivalent of 2 VHS tapes (the size of the 2 external hard drives).

I am with you on saving the money and you did a great job of that, too! I have the same dilemma, only I really like listening to an album or an 8 track from time to time so I have held on to everything! I had to chuckle when I read about the money you spent on the equipment and such over the years because my Pioneer system came to my mind first! Talk about spending some money! I like how you ultimately organized everything! Touche and kudos! sam

I have just about reached the age where I have made a stand....

I said almost so perhaps I MAY still buy one new computer in my life!! My stand is to NOT upgrade stuff any more. i can't be bothered to learn how to operate the new and i hate reading books from a device.
