    This is an awesome thread! All of these posts are winners. Thanks to those who have introduced me to amps I didn't know existed (that's what happens when you sit in a mancave for too long). :thmbsp:

    I love the older Classe amps where the amps had the thick fascia and big handles. Elegant but extruded quality. I am not so enamoured with them now.

    Exceptional. The driver PCBs are almost sci-fi. Designed to last and drive anything. While this amp was released 5 years prior to the Jeff Rowland No.8, its amp stages are nearly identical.

    Accuphase defines quality. The P-5000 and P-7000 are pure works of art.

    My currently using Kenwood WX-100 has nice appearnce, too. In its catalogue about 45 years ago, they state "this model has very noble design....." (On top of it is placed a chinese 6CA7 SE amp.)
