    Thumbs Up nostalgic shopping

    A few mates and I were nattering about things we'd once owned but, for whatever reason, no longer did. One thing I'd totally forgotten about was the thing I bought with my very first pay packet (Saturday job) - a pair of headphones - and as such were quite special to me.

    However one day I feel backwards in my chair (beer is a cruel liquid), and squashed them flat, and as they were beyond repair, they got binned.

    Out of curiosity, I had a look on ebay and found a pair in hardly used condition. I won the auction (paying 5p more than I did back in '76 PMSL), and they just turned up, in the original box (with instructions). Tried them out and the sound gorgeous

    So now I've been reunited with a pair od SE-305's once more... I'm a happy bunny indeed



    Awesome retro cool




    What things did you once own that no longer do, but would like to have back?

    Well done Geoff, I'm pleased to see you got them.

    Something I once had that I no longer own but would like to have back? That's easy, my Astra.
