A beautiful single-ended 6P3P amp built by a guy called "Profi" over at DIYAudio.com (http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/tubes-valves/71300-photo-gallery-post5401975.html)

Absolutely stunning !  Beautiful woodworking skills and attention to detail...demands alot of patience. Clever use of laser engraving/etching. Lovely vintage-yellow fascia.... looks like leather or yellow bakelite..? Wooden detail, especially wooden knobs on switches/pots creates an element of aesthetic warmth that goes back to vintage radio of the 30's and earlier, and stands well apart from metal or plastic. Never seen such a beautiful work of art. Surely sounds gorgeous as well.

Thanks for posting this!

It might actually have a nice effect if those radial slots could be somewhat illuminated from below. The 'gas stove' effect would, to my mind, create an atmosphere.

Perhaps slightly bluish?  (Apology Schalk!)
