What do you think about the looks of this amp? Any thoughts on who makes it?

Looks kind cool I guess, different anyway. Those tubes are going to warm up pretty good though, and for me at least, it's all a bit too shiny :)
As for a manufacturer, I thought I'd seen them somewhere before but can't place it - the fact that I can't find anything about it would like me to guess it's of asian origin...

Reminds me of a Pathos product, but I know it's not one of theirs. I like it.. very distinctive, but more importantly, how does it sound ? Any specs available?

If you look at the volume knob it looks kind of cheap. I would guess maybe an Asian product using the Pathos styling. I don't like the tube layout for sure.

It has 4 line level inputs and one pair of outputs all single ended abd uses a pair of 12at7's in the driver stage. 150 watts i@ 8 ohms based on a current dumping design. Just arrived and we will be doing listening tests this weekend.

Ugly. Reminds me of an old station wagon.

It is possible it may sound just fine, but not a fan of the looks. Maybe better in person but not doing it for me at all.

I would love to have that station wagon!

P.S. Don't care much for the look of the amp though...

Not silly.just busy. It is made by Zoltan Mikovity the designer of the Soltanus Acoustics ESL
Virtuoso's. We will be showing it in room 1231 at the Montreal Show at the end of the month.
This is the first model and so not yet a confirmed production model.

It does say Maestro on it, who do manufacture amps.

Perhaps the OP was referring to the damage ?
