I prefer it uncovered (safety issue aside).
Looks like a electric substation.

I know this is an "old" thread but your amps are timeless....

Congratulations Peter with your drive to go that extra mile...I myself know the feeling...

I also admire your patience towards a few typical average posters whose remarks are with dubious intention to say the least...clearly you are miles ahead of them......I would love to read more of your projects...links are more than welcome...

Thanks Dimitris to point Peter out to me

Hello Erik!

I would like to thank you for your kind words from deeply inside my heart!
It is these words that give me the guts to go ahead, to travel the extra mile, exactly as you write.

A few years ago I have decided to materialize some projects. All of them are trully unique projects, unique in every aspect. Some of them are absolutely crazy, totally out of this world. Those are creations of imagination when boundaries of cost, labor hours and creativity do not apply! For all those projects, sky is the only limit.

There are several more exotic projects coming. I have already manufacured two crazy prono preamplifiers, pictures of which are going to come shortly. I hope that by year's end they are going to be demonstrated at Nikos' house, along with those 167-kgs-per-monoblock-chassis white power amplifiers. And the world's first crazy MC step up transformer at a ratio of 80x, specially designed for those exotic MC cartridges with output of less than 0.1mV.

Stay tuned...

All the best from Athens, Greece!

First of all, great work, Petavgeris! Exotic to the max.

Any tips on working with ultra-HEAVY amplifiers? I'm currently building one that should be just under 100kg and am wondering how best to deal with that weight while finishing up the build - of course, I'm leaving the heaviest pieces to last so I don't have to lift them every time I flip the amp, but perhaps you have some other insights for us?

Simply beautiful work!

Petavgeris, can you tell us about the turntable on the top of the equipment stand? Is the base also made of Corian? What type of phono stage?

I am also curious about what appears to be a passive volume attenuator on the bottom shelf. Does that use autotransformers and if so did you wind them yourself?
