From an outsider's perspective, most high-end audio gear probably looks like it was designed by and for audiophiles, to the exclusion of everybody else. Big, ungainly speakers with bits of wood trim aren't going to wow fashion-conscious "civilians," and mammoth amplifiers with glitzy lights can be eyesores. Not to me -- I look past the surface and get seduced by the sound. But then, I'm a card-carrying audiophile.
So I've put together a small group of glamour shots of what I consider the best-looking audio gear currently on the market, I hope you'll find at least a few products listed here attractive enough to arouse some curiosity about what they sound like.
