Who makes the ugliest hifi? Brands where design is bottom priority.

The Oto SE may not be a looker but fuck me it looks like a design masterpiece compared to some the kit in the Snell archive( [URL]http://www.snell.no/the_archives.htm[/URL] ). :fly:


I mean seriously, WTF:

Ahhh but they sound fucking great and are built very well. My speakers 25 years old and are in mint condition and look nice with the covers on. Looks always come last with me is SQ first then build and then looks. A lot more went into the design then it looks. Very well matched drivers and cross overs that still to this day make them sound so good. The Snell C's are the best speakers I have had and I have had quite a lot from LV to B&W. They are in the top 5 that I have heard. If if do the show next year they will turn heads with the superb sounds they make.
