Replying to:

@rcrackley Agreed. This is the kind of thing that drew me back to managing my local library. My wife, who is much less annoyingly fussy than I, even wants to create a vinyl collection for the first time and that confirmed for me the fact that it is so bad now.

The other part of this is not only owning the older technology but learning enough about how it works to maintain it. I'm happy to do this myself but wish it wasn't so utterly neglected by society that you can't rely on there being a group of readily available, competing repair services.
