Meanwhile, the other trend we're seeing is the removal of "bulk" features and breaking down tech into smaller components. Such an approach is Onkyo's new HiFi line where they literally split the amp and the pre-amp, as well as power components into separate, higher quality parts. Another example is Eskuche's plain and simple headphones which push for quality rather than quantity. In this direction, perhaps less is more?
The best part is that we're no longer getting cheap tech made of glossy pieces of plastic. These new products are slightly pricier, but offer a considerate attentiveness to sustainable tech design. The carefully trimmed chrome and wood are merely an added plus!
What do you guys think of the retro trend? Is it too early to call? Too much to handle? Let us know what you think!
