Lets get back to more sweet pics please!

Actually on most chinese amps it's not the case or even the design, it's what's inside the case that's the problem. smily_headphones1.gif

Looks like a tube amp I'd buy at Ikea. tongue.gif

I'm a big fan of MAD amps with Grados (namely the RS-1), but I'd take a Woo for looks (and sound) with pretty much any other headphone. Looks wise, the Woo amps are amongst the very best I've seen.

 

The MAD Super II though, is one heck of an all rounder (and looker too IMO). smile.gif

I love my Super II but the good Dr. used the funniest, homemade looking, hand painted, wood feet on mine. Maybe 'cause the power supply gets a bit warm.
With NOS GE tubes the little fella just sings.

Not one of the lookers but one of the biggest vacuum tubes, CWL-861.

Interesting, but is it an audio tube? It rather looks like an x-ray generator...
