It looks great. If it was all alone and dominating the top surface it might be a little much. But it is sitting there happily with all the other decorations. And I can tell the clock likes it. I think if you move the mirror up a few inches it will look perfect. If your wife still doesn't love it, do what I do: new shoes or handbag (for her)

LAB, nice photos BTW.

Can some sort of thermally-acceptable "cover" be fashioned to make her happier?

You have a beautiful home, exlab! Thank you for sharing not only your pics, but your story about getting the tube amp and time spent with the other couple.

There is no way I would hide that thing. It is beautiful.

You have a lovely home. I'll bet there is some spectacular view out that window.

I envy your experience and your new acquisition. Enjoy!

MarkS - I think that you've created a photobucket monster of me, ha!

Yup, the mirror could go up some but it is heavy & awkward - hernia alert! If the amp stays there, I'll raise it.

For those who were interested in our surroundings, included are some pics of Comox Harbour & Glacier. Local critters include Columbia Black Tail Deer (lots of them) & we have an eagle tree behind our house where this mating pair often hangs out. Our wonderful palm tree - kinda unique for the Great White North - was planted by me in 1996 as a 2 footer..

Can I come live with you? I can bring another tube amp.
