Those B&W Nautilis Speakers in the Stereophile ad with the swirly gray side panels that looked like Blutarsky already hurled on them.

Wow I thought this thread was going to be about me. Imagine my disappointment! Swampwalker is right. Those plywood looking B&W speakers are hideous. The first time I saw them I was in the basement alone listening and I couldn't stop screaming.
What marketing genius came up with the idea to push plywood on the general public or was it a joke higher up to see if anyone was paying attention?
I say Nrchy is butt ugly. In particular when he stands next to Monitor Audio Studio 60's speakers.
He looks like Bella Lugosi going from re-hab into his Dracula casket.
Wearing those Blue Circle pumps and purse, in bright pink.
And the red lipstick and blond tresses don't help any, either. Unshaven legs, hairless tail...
Ah... what that out loud?
The new Edge amplifiers, the sorriest looking piece of equipment I have ever seen. Reinforces my suspicion that high-end manufacturers have a jolly good time laughing at their customers. To call that a piece of industrial design is a sad joke. More and more of these monstrosities are coming with wood accents, blue lights and do-ichi-poos to satisfy the folks for whom excess is the only way to go. The Edge stuff is not even good post-modern design. Those horrible Legacy speakers that look like they have been built from woodwork taken out of a turn of the century brothel or from the local Holiday Inn meeting where the Chamber of Commerce meets are also hideous an are the ones with the horns. Please spare us "originality" if you have no taste.
