    Indeed--there's some overlap with the "ugliest component" thread here :)

    Horses for Courses! I love vintage speaker designs even if I'm leery of their SQ

    Oops, I read the thread title and forgot about the OP specifying "you have owned"
    --I own none of the above. If only posting photos of them could get them out of my system!
    So to speak..

    I thought my DIY amp came out looking pretty decent.

    On my short list to own. Listened to a pair about 15 years ago and was amazed of their reproduction ability. They were being fed by a McIntosh tube system (cannot remember the models) and a Thorens TD124 as the source. I do remember the LP, which was Luciano Pavarotti singing Nessun Dorma. Probably one of the few times I have just closed my eyes and listened. RIP Mr. Pavarotti.

    The look and sound better in person (JM Labs Grande Utopias) and do not need unobtanium power amps to push them.

    AT 80k + for a pair (and theft proof at over 400 lbs. each) I hope they would also help with the security of my home. :). Beautiful looking design though.
