    Parts are more senitive,resistors smaller wattage. In your opinion why
    does home electronic last longer and preform better.Is it higher quanity
    parts better design.The first solid state devises had problems,what year
    do you remember that your equipment changed to being reliable. Was It
    the era when fine tuning went away, gold bands on resistors appeared.
    What made the difference,was it parts or money or both. Can anyone do
    a run down on your first computer and when you were force to update
    by buying new systems.
