    I agree, anything McIntosh. Those big blue meters in a dark room are sick. 20170120_165416.jpg

    I really like the Yamaha cr-xx20 look. Also the Kenwood Eleven G is a real looker too. Every brand and model has its own special something. I see many of them as works of art. Just like a classic car!

    E1AF9FDE-ED85-4D44-AEBA-B4CB7A8E9F16.jpeg The Aragon 4004MKII was featured in the Smithsonian and was considered a work of modern art for an electronic piece of equipment. Simple, brawny, modern, yet elegant imo.

    The silver face Pioneers are beautiful in a robust 70s way. Solid billet knobs and wood sides. Really like my SX1050.
    However....
    Born in the fat 50s this early 1960s white faced Sherwood 8000 III is my top esthetic choice. Bask in its gold chrome accented glory. The ivory controls and leatherette metal case all blend into one statement of colourfull class.

    Interesting but a little too alien and sinister for my tastes

    The Sansui piano black finished components get my vote for best looking.

    They don't photograph well.
