Should someone who aspires to become Taoistic undo himself from his/her secondary belongings eventually?

I mean, should he/she undo him-/herself from material things? (such as a Hifi, television etc).

I think that entropy1 means to turn away from material things. Am I correct entropy1?

No is not a rule to leave your goods or possessions. You can "undo" if you wish but this is only a personal option.

Isn't it impossible, though, in today's world to give up possessions?
