Some of my friend has asked why I have stopped collecting vintage hifi gears and have instead focusing on vintage watches.
One key reason is due to the space constraint in HK and with the need of constant move of apartment, it will increase the probability of damage. In addition, with the need for business travels has also shortened the time for listenig of music.
One of the key reason is also due to the retirement of good repairman for vintage hifi gears. Previously, in Mongkok, one can easily find 3 or 4 repairman for vintage gears. Now, I can hardly find one. Moreover, with the scarcity of parts, it has made repair and keeping the amplifiers with orginal spareparts difficult.
Moreover, electronic items have a cetain lifespan. Watches, being mechanical can last s fir several hundred years with proper usage. Without the need for more space, it has also made storge easy.
