Vintage audio appreciation

Just a thread dedicated to those of us who are into the more old school equipment. I have tried a few old headphones and still find they hold up today and just of late I managed to pick up a pair of Quad ESL 57s and they are simply awesome I love the retro look too! Maybe more vintage gear? Do you think vintage audio still holds up today?

I have vintage McIntosh equipment in use today - and before I changed up to a different setup, used the Macs to power semi-vintage Martin Logan electrostatics. For input, I used a Sony direct drive turntable with an Ortofon Moving Coil cartridge. The sound was sweet!
The amp need to replace the capacitors to sound good. best to replace resistors too. For speakers mostly ok except the glue and rubber, and esp cone foam
