Go look up Western Electric wire and solder.

Don't they realize old wire requires old electricity to work best.

No worries. Electricity easily transverses time-space by pretreating wires with quantum tunneling (see Ra article). The owner of the wire will however, need to 'seed' the rip in the continuum by putting their tongue across the wire's dipole while it is hooked up to an amp playing "The Great Radio Controversy" from the band Tesla.

We've had this discussion before, in fact Pucho812 probably started it then too! 

For those who don't know, the 'logic' propagated is that wire is pulled faster now, which reorients the molecules more dramatically.  They supposedly reorient to a 'preferred natural state' over time.  The older the wire, the more slowly it was pulled, the less 'orientation damage' occurred, and the longer it's had to 'heal'.  Thus, it's 'better'!

Believe what you like!  They do!

Ya know, cloud lifters and fet heads are the new snake oil of pro audio in a way.  They have their place, exactly one, which is not why most people buy them.   They buy them for the reasons they’d buy snake oil.   I’d more happily experiment with vintage copper....

Still have a bunch of charged  pre-WW II radio caps.

Willing to part with the electricity they store. Would transfer onto modern medium for hassle-free injection your end. Note though that age-refined electricity is a bit slower (for that true NOS mojo sound) and also denser. Depending on your location this translates into slightly higher shipping cost.

Someone posted that on FB and I noticed John Peluso say something like "I have 600 meters of that. Can I retire?"
