For those of you who may have forgotten what a drop dead gorgeous amplifier looks like.



5 of these beauties stacked for 10 channels of Home Theater bliss would look like something out of Forbidden Planet.

Looks cool but I still think the best look are tube amps.

How about a link so we can read about it.

I found some info in the coding. I could make out Technics in the pic, but this is apparently vintage stuff http://www.vintagetechnics.info/controlpower/sea7000.htm But still looks cool

I love analogue gauges. But I'm also addicted to anything that looks high tech. It's probably a good thing I don't work at NASA. Not a good place to be when you just just can't help yourself if you see a shiny, glowing button.

That's great. I think the purple section should be larger, imho.

Loc: It's all about the location.
Yes, the green section looks out of proportion.


It should be much smaller.
