Thanks!

 

Its a little bear statue made out of Iron. Cant remember where it came from, but it keeps the gamma 2 from lifting up from all the heavy cords at the back.

 

 

 

I would describe the EF-5 as extremely competent, but not very noteworthy. It does a great job, but doesnt do it in any sort of special way. It will stay with me for a while, but it probly wont be a long term keeper.

I disagree—the best looking audio gear is the high-end stuff made from machined aluminum.

But it's easier to hide away ugly gear if it's all black, and harder to design something that looks good in all aluminum.

He could be using the statue as a giant thermal mass/inefficient heatsink.

It actually doesnt have any venting on the unit. What looks like venting is just the design of the aluminum enclosure. I've actually never really felt it get hotter than the ambient air temp. Very cool running. It's PSU, on the other hand, gets pretty damn hot.

Ooh, very nice. Makes me feel like picking up some bamboo bread boards from the dollar store to make my next case.
