The article discusses that audio gear has a metamorphic history of first being essential, then "standard issue" and later disposable, until it is ultimately reborn as a "classic." Some gear is timeless in that it can be reincarnated with affordable off-the-shelf parts throughout its many lives. And then there are the exceptions. During the past five years, the author has written at least two articles about component upgrades--capacitors and op amps--and applaud everyone who has taken the plunge.
