Best looking tube amp - Page 16

post #226 of 1387

This amp is just drop dead gorgeous what a piece of design. I've heard it and it sounds like it looks serious piece of wow factor. The Tube Technology Synergy. Made in England around £9000!

My defacto standard for beautiful tube amps is Frank Cooter's twin towers, mercury vapor power and all:

I always love the look of Ayon amps like the Orthos mono blocks. They look like 2 beautiful v8 engines ready to drive the crap out of some K1000.

Those look like shots of Frank's amp from the 2008 LA meet.  They're even better in person and sound amazing.

I believe I saw these at the SF meet a few months back, but never sat down for a listen.  Next time I suppose.

I'm afraid that to me many of the valve amplifiers in this thread are absolutely hideous :)

 

They look really overblown.

 

Simpler is better IMHO.
