Looks vs. Performance - How would you mix and match?

If you could create an integrated amp with the look of any maker, with the performance of another maker, what would you mix and match ??

I might want to mix the looks of a Yamaha P-2200 with the sound of a modern Ayre or D'Agostino. 

Or Tandberg integrated amp with the guts of an Ayre.
