    I have THREE amplifiers ...and they are ALL RUNNING; - no tape decks, no cd players and no extra tuners though... back in the 80's my rack system went from floor to ceiling...
    - now, just two or three amplifiers and a decent USB soundcard fed by whatever device... - I have also I have three towers and two laptops - all networked together via a couple of c3560 multilayer switches...

    Oh neat! As it just so happens, I had one of those “gravis gamepads”, I just didn't know what it was called at the time. The original screw-in stick broke, got lost, or something, so my dad got one that was machined out of metal (maybe brass) to replace it. (Not sure how he acquired it, whether he made it himself or not.) But what really surprised me, was when Linus asked to play commander keen, which was the game that I primarily used the gamepad to play.

    What I can say is the sound card collection should include any real SB16 , Adlib Gold , ESSolo 1 , or SB16 re-release.
    Other cards didn't really matter unless you're doing MIDI with sound sample patches.
    Yes I am a Tech Hoarder and I feel no shame about it.
    I have an Emachine tower W3050 with nVidia audio and quad spacial effect. Just some PC audio history for you.

    This alone... I'm not going to judge. Top drawer includes two raspberry pis (different gens obv), a keyboard, two canned air, a SATA cable, mouse, the jack cable for my headphones I'd lost (huh, that's handy), screen protector for my phone, mini screw driver set, arduino uno, gpio cables, a breadboard and... oh, a shot glass. It's a start.

    Hate to say it but I found it fascinating. I have mixed feelings calling him a hoarder (well, except for the computer equipment scattered around upstairs). He actually has everything pretty well organized. How about that O/S book with the disks in storage sleeves! The organization of parts, user's manuals, sound & video cards, etc., was well done. And he seemed to know a lot of the history about the items he has. The makings for tech museum. Now he just needs a couple of the early IBM PCs and early clone PCs to document the "PC on every desktop and in every home" era of computing!
