Hello folks,   I built these BR1s for my youngest daughter and we exhibited them at the last HiFi Show in Melbourne in late 2019 before she took possession. They are built from natural timbe

Nice looking BBQ 😂😂😂

one of the most beautiful turntables ever made - Pioneer Exclusive P3.   only produced for Japan market.     under its skin - completely isolated from the plinth.

When I eventually get into head-fi, I think it's going to be a pair of these:

And, then there's this. Can't decide if it's the most gorgeous bit of gear I've seen in ages, or a portable oven:

Always loved their back-lean.  Just beautiful looking speakers.

Not mega high end but very sexy IMO, I've liked Plinius gear since the first time I saw it. not to blow my own trumpet but I probably wouldn't own it if I didn't like it. I still sit and look at the sexy curves some nights while I'm listening. They look like they are built like a tank (they are) but still have a kind of soft appealing look.

Transrotor porn...

 

Transrotor - Tri-Cell Enterprises

 

 

Imagine playing back from all four arms simultaneously, that must be trippy. Like listening in a stadium, with half-second spaced echos...

I'm not usually a big fan of ESLs, but this one does have an industrial charm to it. Which brand is this?

Would look good around my glass topped dining table...then again would need a lot of stacked cushions on them to get the seated heads above the table! :)

I bet this one will divide, but I've always admired the aesthetic styling of Estelon.

I haven’t.... because I have never heard of them! ;)

I must say, this is the first time that I have heard people praising the beauty of the back of a loudspeaker! I sure hope they actually realise they are looking at the back of a loudspeaker…

I guess ML wanted us to appreciate the 'derriere' more given the way the photographs were taken 😄

The Lecson AC1 and AP1/AP3 pre power combo still amazes me. It's nearly 50 years old!

 

And no I don't want to hear about reliability. 💸

 

Edit: Oops. Current production you say? I love the classic industrial styling of the Sun Audio amps (unchanged since forever).

Really torn on which of the two threads to post this CDP in from Omega Audio Concepts.

Hi Marc,

 

you chose the wrong thread! ;)  I would have understood this one’s looks better if it were a prop in a comedy about audiophiles....

 

cheers

Hi guys

 

I won’t deny it: I have trouble thinking of Hifi gear that would meet any conventional standard of beauty. Consider the simple spouse test: how many of our spouses would pay even $100 to have any one of our Hifi items added to their showcase living area as a non-working artefact of decorative beauty?

 

The answer is so close to ‘not one’ that it is simply damning. 

 

Cheers

I'm having problems equating my spouse to having anything remotely like a "showcase living area". And I'm no better...

I'm rather turned on by my audio components, but possibly that's something best left undiscussed! Now if I was J. G. Ballard I could write a novel about my audio attraction and title it "Crash boom".
