All the tube/valve era is a mystery to me (I was born in '66) and that is a vastly important hole for a potential audio historian. My special subject is Japanese (and to a lesser extent US and UK) HiFi of the 1970s to the early 2000s and components/electronics/computers in general through that period. That's the era where all my audio acquisitions, restorations and repairs have always been focused, apart from some 60s gear for friends and family. And some current/recent stuff.
When I was in audio retailing, it was the start of the 90s and of course, I kept every brochure, file, price list I could...
Keeping every piece of documentation and brochure/catalogue since, forever, has been a curse because when someone asks or mentions something, I can 'see' the article, review or the specs and have to go find it. Can't help myself.
