All this got me ruminating on whether or not there will be much of a market for this stuff once it stops functioning.
I have a big vintage wooden radio which I bought to use as a retro case for new hardware (media server, music player, Z-wave hub, heck, even "render-farm". Haven't got around to it yet, but it's a stylish piece so my wife actually put it in the living room ;-)
