I have two components that I bought in the early 90’s, a Hafler XL-600 power amp and Apogee Acoustics Centaurus ribbon hybrid speakers, that I enjoy daily.

SME 309 tonearm (1992). Next oldest is Mirage M-3si speakers (1993). Beyond that is a Denon TU-800 (1989), not in the system.

A KLH Model 21/II FM radio with original box purchased in 1970. Still sounds and looks great. Not quite a 'component' but, nonetheless, an historic and respectable piece.

I bought my Pioneer PL-707 turntable new in 1983 and although it's currently sleeping in its original packaging, it still performs like a champ.

A Heathkit AR-15 receiver that I built in 1967 is the oldest component that I still use (in the garage while puttering around). Amazed it still works. Plays vinyl on a Luxman PD121/Black widow arm (circa 1978?).
