Best looking / worst looking amps & preamps
I like the MACINTOSH gear,have taht timeless classic look.I second on the AUDIO RESEARCH,simple look and understated but elegant.For bodacious I would have to go for the PERRAUX,were they on crack when they made up that design or style.Looks like ...

Tube or SS Preamp with electrostatics & ML amp?
I would check out a Conrad Johnson PREMIER 3 goes well with SS amps and Martin Logans.Had that combination but with a THRESHOLD amp.Cheers.

Conrad Johnson Premier 3 hands down with good ol stock Telefunkens or Mullards.
