Hell, my Sony receiver is over 10 years old. I also have a Sony TV and a sony cassette deck that are 6 or 7 years old. And I too have an old school diskman thats like 6 years old. And for more recent, I have a last run Trinitron before they went to the "Wega's". I have never, with the exception of the PS2, had a Sony product go out on me.
