How an audiophile deems their system’s sonics and need to replace any part of it is a personal choice. If we choose to do so once every twenty years, every once in a while, or as soon as upgrades are introduced are decisions we all make for ourselves.

I bought my turntable (Aniston RD-11S) used in 1976. I built my Ampzilla in 1975. Old stuff can be good. I used my Ampzilla until this past summer, when I got a used SST Son of Ampzilla! Is better…

I still have the Technics SL-150 turntable with an SME tonearm I bought about 45 years ago. It's still accurate, and still plays beautifully. But everything else in my system has been changed out for the better every decade or so.
