    I was going to say "make sure that no one knows where you live before posting about expensive audio equipment in an open forum", but you did it for me.

    Cheers,

    Some day I plan to create a list for my wife as a guide when I'm gone or no longer able to give a damn. I told her I'll list what I paid and give a guide to what each item is worth today as help for selling off what she doesn't want to keep. Until then . . . I have no idea of a total I paid, or what it's worth.

    I'm 64 and have had JBLs in my house since I was 4-years-old. Still have that one . . . and now well over a dozen other pairs plus some other brands. To my original Crown amp purchased in 1971 I've added another dozen-or-more Crown amps, pre-amps, crossovers, and tuners. I purchased my original Soundcraftsmen Pre-EQ around 1976 and still have that one and probably a dozen other SC components including pre-EQ, pre, pre-tuner, EQ, and amps. I also still own my Nakamichi Dragon cassette purchased new (my wife was there at the time), and I have five turntables (dumped my first Thorens decades ago), Tandberg cassette, Adcom systems, some Rotel stuff purchased at a yard sale, and more I've likely tucked away that will re-surface next year when we move.

    Interesting topic but I'm sure for every one of us who won't answer the question on purpose there are probably three others who can't even hazard a guess. And the rest are too busy listening to the music!

    Never heard of her, but it is compelling music. I really like it, thanks.
    Streaming via Tidal now.

    Ok. I'm giving all your details to my wife! I should advise you may get a snarky note about me bringing too much viny into the house. You've been warned ;)

    Between home Hi Fi and PA gear I have everything insured on a sub policy on my homeowners for just north of $60,000.00. 90% for the PA...which for playing recorded music sounds almost holographic in the right acoustic space outdoors..consists of Meyer, Powersoft, and QSC gear,

    I'm gonna try and translate what you said because it sounds interesting. You must be trying to type this on a phone! Tell me how close I got:

    "I'm 65 and it sounds like we have similar great taste. If you need help with Crown I'm your guy. Learned at the factory. Have their 'A' rating. They still sell me parts under a grand-fathered discount."

    Thanks!

    I'm betting your wife will give all that audio equipment away for pennies on the dollar, if that much. She'll be glad to get rid of all that clutter!

    If she sells if for pennies on the dollars I told her it was worth when I got it, she'll be a wealthy woman! ;)

    How much will you offer her for the Mac C20 I've owned since around 1968? :rflmao:
