Yes, technology can be beautiful. When it is real technology and not just the imitation of it. When a car is made of metal and not plastic just as an amplifier that is made of metal and not plastic. When it is for moments or hours of providing you every beat and detail of quality music, when you can sit down and each time discover a new sound in your favourite song, when it gives you the freedom to just listen to quality music instead of being only fit for background whatever-is-on-is-OK radio humming.
Good old metal amplifiers are there with you for a lifetime.
And then, when you have the chance and find something even better on Ebay or in a small second-hand hifi corner in yout town, you are free to pass it on to the next generation of quality music lovers.
