Stereo music systems in the 1980s and 90s were often composed of a stack of individual components such as an amplifier, a radio tuner, a record deck and …a tape deck. Each component was housed in a box around 400mm x 300mm x 60mm. The individual boxes were tethered to the amplifier and usually stacked on top of it. Remote from the stack were a pair of speakers that were sized in direct proportion to the size of the owner’s ego. The idea was that if you wanted to add more functionality to your system, such as a reel to reel tape player, and later a CD player, you could simply plug-in another component to the stack. Yes, I know this sounds bizarre in the age of the smartphone where all this functionality resides in a couple of apps, but I promise you it is true!
