How much gear do you own?

Do you have multiples of amps, preamps, speakers, cables, etc?

I do, and am starting to realize it's leaning hard toward a sickness rather than a passionate hobby.  Either that, or I'm getting up in age and tired of all the "stuff" I've acquired taking up so much space.

I went through a phase about ten years ago where I got tired of stereo gear and dumped most of it.  I really regretted it after a few years and acquired most (and then much more) back.

But this time it feels different somehow.  And I really think it has to do with my age...pushing 60.

Others go through this?



OK.  So I’m already starting to back-track my decision.  Maybe I’ll “keep” the gear that’s difficult to replace should I ever decide to get it again but still dump the majority of the stuff.




Two tube integrated’s. Both KT88 based and one also does EL34, which I’m running original Winged C Svetlana’s in. I don’t miss having a preamp. 

OH Boy! I don't feel bad now geez, I have three lockers with three sets of Klipsch and 4 sets of Acoustat speakers plus 10 power amps and other toys and I'am paying $350 per month per locker. but i will be getting rid of this stuff, because they keep raising the locker fees, plus Northern California has Smart Meters which raised my electric bill, because the meter calculates the kw down to the penny, so my bill comes in at $355.00 to $475.00 per month when I leave on my Pass amps.
