    Audio gear or appliances that are good "investments" or valuable as "vintage items"???

    Two caveats: 1. This is not a future or even present thing for me. At 80 y/o, I won't be around for items that are new today to become "long term" investments. Plus, there are no thrift shops or the occasionally found cast-offs here in Panama as there are in the USA and Europe. But I...
