Allright, the problem was that I didn't knew in which forum my topic belonged, since my first thread did not get any response I thought I had put it in the wrong forum.

Yes. The layout of controls will be determined partly by the circuit and partly by ergonomics, and that then leads on to any cosmetic features. For example, the volume and source selector knobs are often larger than other controls. Starting with cosmetics is starting from the wrong end of the problem.

Most of us no longer buy amplifiers, so we are not necessarily the best people to ask.

Yes you're right, you should always start out with the internal functios and to solve the requirements that you set when designing a product. However, the pcb is already made and a list of requirements (for example the different types of input and the controls) are already written down. But the overall shape did not have any influence on my requirements so the shape is (almost) completely free. That's why I only showed the overall shape. No matter which one I choose, the requirement will get into the product

No 1 because I like clean unfussy designs.
The asymmetry appeals also.
If required, there is room for a series of buttons under the display.
