Sitting at home getting bored so today I switched out my custom mono 45 tubes amps for a 50 or so year old CJ MV75-a1 using KT120 tubes. This has more than 75 watts and costs less than $1000 in most instances. And it just sounds wonderful! Maybe my more expensive amps reveal a tiny bit more of the detail, but I am beating my foot to the beat and just enjoying myself immensely. I am not saying you should seek out an example of this exact amp, but look at any number of old tube amps that won't cost an arm and a leg. Try to find one that has been maintained. And they are not going to depreciate any more than they already have - a sound investment. Just my 2 cents worth.
No worries at all, the first rule in C&C is to have fun with it. Your post was about the value in inexpensive vintage components, the CJ amp was just an example. If you have occasion to recommend some components we have pricing guidelines on a sticky, which we break all the time if it's fun and interesting.
