You don't have to spend big money to have nice things; I found my Tulip Table in the trash on Bowery in NYC, pulled a bunch of Eames shell chairs out of a building to be gutted just a few blocks later, and I picked up my Eames 670 Lounge at an antique store in the Finger Lakes for $8.00.

Vintage stereo equipment is great, but you really have to be careful. Older tube gear can be unsafe and should be serviced before you put it into daily use. Other pieces of equipment will also need some cleaning and restoration in order to sound the best. I had my 40 year old McIntosh MC2105 completely rebuilt two years ago. I called up McIntosh and ordered all new parts directly from them! (say what you want, but they really stand behind their products!)
