    Default If you think your tubes look cool.............

    Try out Electronluv. The founder thought tubes were a thing of beauty and shoving them into black boxes was boring........

    I remember his stuff; was mentioned some time last year. Different for sure, and most of it is pretty beautiful.

    Anybody know about how it sounds/performs?

    Yuck. Way over the top with form over function. Gimme tubes in a black box any day. Simple can be simply beautiful. Besides, the black box is easier aesthetically to place in virtually any room and matches most of one's components.

    Yeah, they aren't made for just any room. The buyers of this type stuff will have their "special room" that fits the design. More "art" than function. Here is a couple monoblocks that look like they come right out of Captain Nemo's sub.

    I would hope they sound beautiful. Definately artistic statements. Not to mention those fifty watts monos they build go for a $1100 a watt.

    Even if they didn't work at all, they got to be a hell of a conversation piece..!!

    For that kind of money, they damn well better work. In fact, they need to take my place on the job a day or two...

    I really don't like these at all. The first pics, to me at least, look like a glorified toaster and turkey roaster. Has that high end appliance look to it... I'll stick to more common specimens.

    Very different that's for sure. I don't find them beautiful though. I prefer a classy and plain box. I do love having the tubes exposed if the chassis goes with it. I like my amp with and without the cage.

    Russ,
    IMO, your mono blocks look waaaay cooler than the amps posted above!
