Recently I have been thinking about upgrading to a Benchmark DAC2, but I realized that the main thing holding me back is that I just don't like the look of it. I know, it's studio gear and is more about performance than looks, but I fully expect to keep whatever DAC I buy for a long time, so having hardware that looks nice in addition to performing well seems important. In 20 years time, no-one is going to look back fondly on something like the DAC2 the way they do with a lot of vintage gear these days. Even compared to some of the older DAC1 designs, it doesn't look as good.
So what do you think the best looking DACs are? What designs will stand the test of time?
