I'm sorry, what was the question again?

Actually, it is this type of question that makes me feel that I have a pretty sharp memory, and that getting older is not affecting me all that much. (I believe I can trace my line of equipment back pretty accurately to when I started on this audio merry-go-round back in 1980 or so.)
But then I try to remember what I had for breakfast this morning, and then it all comes crashing down upon me.
I started with a Wolensak 3M Tape recorder and added a Fisher Receiver model ???, Dual 1219 ( or was it a 1019) turntable and a pair of AR4X speakers. That was about 1967 or 68. Then, like 40+ years went past and... well click on my current system, which is almost up to date. In between were numerous components, speakers, cables, and moreover a heck of a lot of happy listening.
Waht gear has come and gone?
My main concern these days is the 'here after'. I merely go from one room to another around the house lately, and when I get to that other room, I gotta stop and ask myself what the hell I'm here after?
Try recalling your sixth grade classmates, if you want to check your memory. Or your current checking account... to the penny. or what you wore last Thurssday to work.
or your families birthdays... and or aneversaries.
those are more important than gear I no longer have.
Try remembering who you bought waht from and or sold what too, instead.... without peeking at your feedback.
I still have most of what I started out with. I just relegate the older stuff to other rooms or to my daughters' bedrooms.
