Even though the consoles don't have as good a chance as some of the other gear, to me it's the most heartbreaking part. The amount of work it takes to recap, maintain, and restore a 30+ year-old console makes it so personal and heartbreaking to lose...
Yes, and even if you clean everything and it's good as new, you still had to go through the experience of the heartbreak and uncertainty, which is a really crappy experience.
