Default Re: What gear do you like to LOOK at?

These are ugly, like hideous furniture, and they don't sound very good + they're way over-priced.
I saw/listened to a pair of these at Marvin's in Fort Worth, TX.
Took forever to finally sell them.

These look like they tried to rip-off a B&W design, and just ended-up butchering it..

Beauty's in the eye of the beholder. What you find ugly other like.

This thread's titled "What gear do you like to LOOK at?" and that's what I did. Instead of insulting what others like, why not post something constructive and put up more pictures of what YOU like?

Yes they are ugly and sold at $20K + that is why Revel changed the look to be more traditional, even the new ones I find are ugly

The original Revel Optima series might be considered a radical design, but both the Salons and the Studios sound great and are priced in the same range as other speakers of similar quality.
