Hey if it has tubes in it, it's all good stuff as far as I'm concerned!

Actually, much of the "ton of junk" was acquired quite reasonably. Much 
was new back in the 60's and 70's, and was "inherited" or was stuff I 
had back then. The GPT-750 I purchased in 1973, for $350.00. Not a bad 
value per pound. But $300-400 for an AC-1? I don't think so. Heck, I got 
a Heath AT-1 just a couple years ago for $75.00. Oh yes, and a Davco 
DR30 receiver for the same price. It just takes careful shopping, and 
not depending on eBay.
