Hey, I kid you a little because I was the same way for a long time. One of my favorite possessions during my youth was this thing. I realize how ancient that thing looks, but you need to understand that it was truly bad ass in it's day. I loved that thing in all the ways that a thing could be loved. When it died, I tried telling myself it was in a better place, which of course wasn't true.
That is like the robocop of discmans. Its beautiful!!
