I personally like to take the best of old-school hifi and incorporate it into my modern life. For instance I use a vintage Pioneer SA-8500 as my main amplifier for my computer system, powered by a modern Audiolab M-DAC so that it receives the best signal. Then I route it through very good modern bookshelf Energy canadian speakers.

This setup I use for all my computers, and retro machines. My Atari Falcon sounds absolutely sensational since it outputs through its FDI optical output to the DAC.
