Betamax and VHS
Back in the 80s, almost everyone had a boom box so they could listen to music on cassette tapes, but true audiophiles invested in big, bulky component stereo systems that would take up a significant amount of space in their living room. A classic stereo system has a turntable, two huge speakers, a tape deck, AM/FM tuner, an amplifier, and a receiver, and getting everything connected involves using a lot of wires and jacks. You can still get a complete stereo setup from Ebay, but you can also get a downsized component to get that distinctive hi-fi sound quality.
The recent demand for all things retro indicates that these 80s home devices will once again be present in living rooms all over the world. So dust off your old component and your VHS player, place them in a prominent place in your home, and enjoy watching movies or listening to the music of your youth!
