Abstract. The article presents key parameters for users of vintage audio electroacoustic equipment, which determine their quality. The research part presents the results relating to: knowledge of the concept of vintage audio, technical knowledge about electroacoustic equipment and the respondents’ opinions on the quality of contemporary audio systems. The key features of your vintage audio equipment, important from the user’s point of view, have also been distinguished. A diagnosis was made of whether the respondents attach importance to the price of the equipment and whether they would be willing to pay more for the quality of sound and workmanship. The article ends with a discussion of the research results and a summary.
