I always wanted a stereo with an equalizer. I wouldn't know what the hell to do with it, but it would look cool. That was before new stereo's started doing all the work for you, perhaps taking some of the fun out of it, like keeping score in bowling. I remember actually reading articles in Playboy about what stereo components to buy first when building a new system. Now the only way to look really cool would be to have on of these stage-sized boards in your crib, sliding things up and down just to impress people who had no idea what you were doing because you would have no idea what you were doing.
