    I'll go for a top 5...

    5) YouRock Guitar, MIDI adapter and Rock Band 3 - Play "real guitar" on a games console? Count me in!
    4) MiniDisc player - 25 MD's full of music mixes in Long Play (the original iPod)
    3) Amiga 600 - just before Commodore went bust (then upgraded to an A1200)
    2) iPod 20Gb then later 80Gb (I love my music!)
    1) iPhone (okay, still got, use, current - but it's the single best bit of tech I've ever owned!)

    My favourite piece of tech is a Heiz T1000 CNC machine.

    One of my fav bits of kit was a chunky Panasonic SA-HT70 DVD & home theater system bout for about 300 quid 8 or 9 years ago. A lovely rich sound came from it so I was rather gutted when the dvd drive packed up (a common problem with these apparently)

    However it didnt get junked - its now here in my office, and the heart of my computer sound system connected to some lovely old JVC speakers I was given a few years ago

    I cant turn it up too loud or I get complaints from next door

    That and my steering wheel. Logitech Formula Force. Bright red, built out of steel and absolutely solid. Beat the crappy Microsoft counterpart into submission and force feedback that could move your desk if not bolted down. Was the second most expensive part I've ever bought at 240 quid. (Most expensive was my first CDR drive at 299).
    I'd forgotten about CDR drives when they were first launched, and before the advent of buffer underun technology! I brought one too and probably spent more on incomplete CD's than I did on the drive in the end!

    Awesome tech you have owned-mp3.png

    I had one of these years ago....it was brilliant. Creative Zen Vision:M. Weighed a ton. I dropped it one day and knackered the hard drive. Devastated.....

    I miss it.

    I've still got my Zen Vision:M... The screen developed a bad case of shadows and white lines but still perfectly useable.
    Also got a Zen X Fi.
    Ironically neither of them get much use these days since I got a new car with USB connectivity for playback and the files run off a usb drive =/

    I also have this:
    Awesome tech you have owned-amp.jpg

    It's not really tech, it's got 2 pre-amp valves, 1 phase-split valve and 4 humungous power valves, but it's electrical, at least.

    It was made in 1974 and I bought it in 1988 ish. It's quite loud.

    It's amazing to see my old machine at less than 10% of the cost we paid for it back in the day too!
