Moreover, if I didn't have such an elaborate sound system, as well as a Yamaha Digital piano, I could easily downsize to a studio apartment, which I may do some day.  A Boze radio and DC player would probably do me just fine.  I feel a great sadness over this state of affairs, but one must face reality.  We're clinging to what will soon be considered relics.
