t has been said many times that good things come to those who wait. This old adage might be especially true for collectors of vintage stereo and audio equipment. Many of those enthusiasts believe the high-end equipment that was built to use vacuum tubes has a sweeter sound not matched by newer technology. These folks know that by waiting for the tubes to warm they will be treated to a full, rich audio experience. The market for vintage high-end stereo and audio equipment is not just limited to the United States with the largest concentration of collectors being in areas of Asia. When selling your audio equipment whatever the vintage, consider the worldwide auction market. An auction is the best format because buyers have to compete and results in prices that are simply amazing. Nichole Pirolo and Mike Boerschinger

The keys to a successful auction include choosing an auction company with a stellar reputation and an understanding of global markets. The Sell It Now Store™ specializes in positioning your item in the auction market with many high resolution photographs, a video and an accurate description of your item and its significance. They understand the items, worldwide market and what it takes to sell your item for top dollar. The process is simple; give them a call for a free valuation. When the bidding ends, you will be amazed at how much your item sold for. You might be even more surprised what country your item is being shipped to. The Sell It Now Store can be reached at (414) 727-0600. Find them online at

a point well taken b y Ti m o t h y J a y

It is not unusual to hear about homes that are quite amazing, even spectacular in some cases, among the many sought after properties found in the Lake Country. But for some reason the prestige that comes along with owning a home on Hewitts Point Road on Oconomowoc Lake has always been something extra special. Hewitts Point carefully dissects a small peninsula on the north side of Oconomowoc Lake. It winds up and down and around the hilly terrain until it leads us to this 3-story residence near the point of the peninsula. This home, at least the original version, is believed to be around 127 years old—although even after 22 years the current owners have not been able to confirm this for certain. From the moment you enter the home you are drawn into the deep rich colors of the hardwood flooring, wood paneling and beamed ceilings. The fireplace in the living room carries through the open-concept second story balcony-area all the way to the second story ceiling. The balcony itself

With accomodations for 12 or more people and featuring a two-way fireplace and wainscot-finished walls, this room already has a lot to offer—but there’s also a little nostalgia to add. In the center of the floor under the dining room table, there is a foot-triggered call bell that rings in the kitchen when stepped on. The bell itself happens to be imported from England and just another reminder of the way things used to be once upon a time.

There are also double ovens, honed granite countertops, a Sub-Zero refrigerator, maple flooring and imported light fixtures. The cabinet work in here is a wonderful example of old vs. new style and design. Every cabinet door in this kitchen was retained from the original model or cut out and moved from one of the other rooms in the home, and then refinished and stained to match. The cabinets around the main sink also feature toe-kick drawers for a little extra storage space.
