    How do you define 'vintage'? Well that's simple: it's the sort of old tat that Barry still uses. '

    Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?

    Some of that 'old tat', however, can be rather good. I've got a fair wedge of it myself!

    Marco, points well said, however using this forum from an android phone the info you state does not show in selection of sub forums for instance if I go into Sub-Forum and select artists palette then it immediately takes me into that posting area there is no Sub-Forums after that, maybe it's a tap talk problem, I think this is where people are getting confused, if like me they use a smart phone 😉

    The problem IMO is the poncey names, which are non-intuitive. Simply re-naming 'Artist's Palette' as 'Accessories' and 'Strokes of Genius' as 'Reviews' will solve the problem and reduce the mods' workload.

    I have to say I agree. I also think 2000 is an odd choice as Jez rightly points out that much of the 90s stuff is either still going or indistinguishable from new gear.

    On top of that, forum members tend to buy a lot of 80s and 90s gear, so there is a risk of most threads ending up in one category. Are we really to lump all amps, CD players, speakers, Tuners etc in ONE category because they are of a certain age. If so, I think it's the wrong choice. Surely a 90s and 21st century amp have more in common with each other that a 90s amp and a 90s CD player. I'd respectfully say the Original post needs a re-think.
