Is Vintage Audio Gear Better or More Nostalgic?

In this video, we explore whether vintage audio gear it truly better than today's modern electronics and loudspeakers or if the fascination has more to do with nostalgia. We talk about vintage stereo receivers from the 70s vs ones from this decade. Are the inflated asking prices for used vintage gear really worth it? Or are audiophiles being taken advantage of? We look at the progression of loudspeakers over the decades and how some of the designs from the early days are absolutely unacceptable by today's standards for performance reasons.
