    Default Show us your hi-if graveyard!

    So, we’re hopefully moving house in the next couple of weeks, and starting to pack. Had some stuff in the garage, some in the loft, some in the summer house, and a system in the spare room. Anyway, most of it now together in my “hi-fi graveyard”. A few boxes not yet on the shelves, and another six pairs of large speakers not in the photo. Anyone else this bad with hoarding stuff?! or am I a lost cause?

    Exactly the reason prices are continually rising.

    I thought I was bad, but you have the affliction in a very bad way Alex. But I gotta hand it to you your neatness is an example to follow.

    My policy is to keep next to nothing I don't use regularly. Leaves more room for records. I keep a small amount 'consumables' like tubes, cartridges/styli and certainly have far more cables than I need (as well as too many boxes full of screws, connectors and other random bric-a-brac), but in general components not in regular use don't hang around.

    I took about two square metres of cables to the tip. Still have about the same “just in case”...
