There must be a reason behind this but I can't quite figure it out.
Mmmmh, good point.
Maybe people who spend time thinking about looks and taking their time in carefull construction also spend time looking into amp design before buying "just another kit".
That's why they end up with George's well documented and thought through designs?!?
Just a thought...

Cheers,

Or, they listen to it during the final check up and realize that it deserves the chassis that matches its sound.

I think people are just able to produce better pictures nowadays. The quality per dollar of cameras has improved tremendously. Additional factors are better access to information about lighting setup as well as retouching software becoming easier to use. For example, it took me all of 1 minute to retouch this photo using iPhoto software and the procedure was simply pressing the mouse button over each screw.

Yes, you have something there. I did almost 200 hours of research on this (before and after someone on this forum told me about Tubelab) before I purchased.

To an extent, yes. But I see terrible pics all the time taken by people with $1800 cameras and expensive lenses. I didnt spend much time taking these but I usually *try* to make sure the highlights and shadows are natural and that the color balance isn't totally wacked. These two things are the most difficult for any photographer to master. Vignetting just adds a little pizzaz and thats it for editing these particular pics.

Classical all DHT setup with PX4, with a little aid of modern electronics.
Here the British AR6 replaces Telefunken KC1.

Lazy Jaap, or perhaps too proud of his batteries. Man, that wood chassis looks too good. You don't mess up with good looks. This I say and it shall be written in stone.
