You're right!!! Time to close the thread. Tell me, please, how is sentimentalism an enemy of progress...of discovery...of mere change? I've had these components since the inception of my even now burgeoning love of audiophilia. I guess I'm a dreamer. Thank you for suggesting that my attempt to defeat the ever consuming depreciation of technology with my neurotic inability to depart with what has been a pride and joy for so long is in vain. I suppose I will have better luck sellin elsewhere.
