Classic gear from yesteryear; vintage audio standing the test of time.

Well, if you believe the whole John Titor hoopla.....

John Titor's supposedly a time traveler from the year 2038, who's come back to retrieve (I'm not making this up!)an old, OLD IBM 9500-one of THE 1st personal computers, vintage 1975. Seems in that timeline, Y2K starts affecting things BIG time, and they need to retrieve some old code. It's post ('limited') nuclear war in 2038, along with some pretty big earth changes, and he does NOT have any kind things to say about THIS generation, because we let our civil rights slip away (he's describing pretty much a fascist police state, and chronic civil war), and things devolve pretty much into the chaos of his world.
Just sci-fi spoofing? I think so. Except, except...he DID make some very accurate and specific predictions that have since come true, that would've been pretty difficult to fake. Specifically, some arcane physics discoveries that would prove to be pivotal to building a time machine. But his English is standard baby boomer English, and he uses some terms that shows he's probably NOT in a military like he claims (ie, what the hell is a 'shotgun brigade'?). Fascinating read, there's supposed to be a movie coming out about it. Google it. I don't think they care too much about high end audio, but useful old pre computer things like books, radios and typewriters are much coveted.
