    I as a vintage guy have to agree with you. I love my old audio gear, like I do my old 65 Chevy, but it isn't really a part of what's going on in today's world of audio any more. A big part of the vintage route for me is because it was paid for over 40 years ago and it, lacking anything close by to compare, sounds good enough to enjoy music with. Probably nostalgia and the vintage look and feel is a bigger draw for me than it should be.

    Yep I like whatever works good and is fun., but ...

    You know how the record sales stats come out every year for vinyl copies and how it keeps going up? Well they can only mesure new vinyl records and no sales on used records and for most buyers of records used probably dominates most their collection. However the market doesn't care about something sold new 40 years ago and or used today. Can it be a business? most definitely, does new manufacturing benefit from used items, only to see a trend and to help make new items to supply that trend.

    I like the idea of some sort of column, blog, editorial or article about vintage gear. I mean, primarily, it's the reason I come here, is to read about people's finds and whatnot. It might make a pretty good blog if the content was constantly coming in. A magazine though is a stretch for many of the reasons listed here in this thread.

    I like writing, so this has piqued my curiosity. If there was a blog out there with articles on vintage gear, would you subscribe to and read it?

    Maybe it could be an AudioKarma blog with people contributing their own articles?
