A market needs supply but your "when you can find them" implies that there isn't much of it. In a market with low supply, I think you're banking on discovery by buyers.

magic audiophile leads will undoubtedly go up in value by 10,000% in the next 2-3 years.

I think you should have written, “...will go up in PRICE...”.
The actual VALUE of the magic leads has always been in question.

Mike knows "a thing or two" about this stuff.
Also expect the original/vintage "brass capsule" C414's, to continue to appreciate.
And the C412. Oops, there I said it!

Not quite the same scale of market, but look at all those "foolish" Car Enthusiasts who bought American Classic Muscle Cars,
decades ago pennies on the Dollar. (or even more recently)...

Muscle cars are a good example of how 'the experts' are often completely and totally wrong.

Back in the day the automotive experts considered muscle cars to be poorly built, overpowered and unrefined. Hell, teenage boys drove Plymouth Roadrunners to deliver pizzas.

To 'the experts' future value would be found in vehicles of class and sophistication such as the Cadillac Eldorado, or a European saloon like the Jaguar XJ6.

Now of course muscle cars sell for hundreds of thousands of dollars at auction and you can get a vintage Cadillac or Jaguar for the price of a used Camry.

OMG I need a hardware autotune rack.

Seriously...not being sarcastic.

Never thought about it and I am sure they are cheap.

Sounds like the most fun thing ever.

This is precisely why I began stocking up of whiskey; during an economic collapse, whiskey is as good as gold. Now if I could actually buy it faster than I drink it I might has some left over to barter with.
