Best looking tube amp - Page 9

post #121 of 1281
I still love my yamamoto specially with the cosmetic and audio pairing with the AT-W1000

But the MAD E.A.R. made me ... mad with WOOD again. I can just imagine how it would look like besides a Denon 7k, Grado RS1 or thr GS1000. Wood heaven.

the sleek finish of the Hovland Sapphire made me look twice.

Nice post guys.

I have to say, this one is absolutely stunning.

Yamamoto and W1000 is truly a beautiful combo... Shouldn't be long before my MAD Ear+ arrives too.

How does the MAD pair up with the W1000?

Not as exotic as some here, but classy nevertheless. Woo 6SE.

I've seen all my favorites listed already, so no pics.

1: early Moth gear
2: Manley gear

I'm also a fan of the antique/steampunk look, as uncle erik mentioned. Wrinkle-finish paint, bakelite, brass, things machined versus stamped, etching.

Nice thread. I'm more into SQ first, but there is no denying the allure of nearly any warmed up tube gear, old or new. Many of these are really works of industrial art.

Some serious eye candy here. Which of these are around $300?

Once you've seen one tube amp you've seen them all

Just kidding, I cant believe some of these crazy contraptions, some are truly beautiful works of art

Damnit.... why cant I be rich?

That woo audio gear isn't the most awe-inspiring equipment in this thread, but it has a subtle refinement that is definitely worth noting.

Yours is an incredible example. One of the best looking (might be THE best) DIY amps I have ever seen, and I applaud your effort.
