Mike, I’m not buying this, I bet your hi-fi system contains lots of new gear!

This is often hard for people to accept at first but the newest item in my stereo system is a DAC, the rest is much older.

My amplifier, preamplifier, the turntable, headshell, transformer and speakers from the late 1970s and early ’80s. I also own a tuner from 1975, a cassette deck from 1983, my DAC is from 2013 and my cartridge is from 2009.
