Most Beautiful Receiver / Integrated - Ever was... ?


Time for what I hope is another fun thread. Please include links if you can.

I'm curious to everyone what you think the hottest/sexiest most interesting integrated or receiver ever was. For me, brands like these would probably be in the running:

  • Carver
  • Kyocera
  • Tandberg
  • Revox (old)

It didn't have to work, or sound good. Just had to do it for you in the looks department.

I forgot about the Sansui G-9000 as well 
marantz 4400 with it's scope.
in newer gear:

Pathos Acoustics ... integrateds from the little Remix on up ...

Magnum Dynalab ... receivers and integrateds
My Sansui 9090db gets more open jaw  looks than anything I've ever owned.  Its pretty no doubt.  
I always loved the look of the Pioneer SX 1150/1250 receivers.  Had both for a while.  The build quality was stellar!  
And yes... Marrantz 2270 is killer... But really weren't all the receivers from this period?  I can't really think of any that were bone ugly.

I had a Sherwood receiver back in the early 70's.  Nice walnut case and sounded really good.  Why didn't I just keep that simple system?
