UnderCurrent often hears the old school industry types whinging that ‘they don’t make ’em like that anymore’. Product life cycles have shortened so much that consumer just expect their phone to break after 12 months, their washing machine to start whining after a few years and their gadgets to be rendered obsolete as soon as the next iteration hits the market.
That’s why this ad piqued UnderCurrent’s interest — it’s for a Marantz receiver from the 1970s and the sentiment certainly still resides in people of that vintage:
They don’t make em like Marantz anymore…
