Tube amps are supposed to be ugly. They wouldn't sound good otherwise.

The better looking they are, the worse they sound.

Just a fact of life.

I might haven't hear the really good stuff or we have different views on aesthetics - some of  the best sound I have heard came from good looking tube amplifiers.

Well, I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Beauty is much more subjective than sound, although both are.
