Case-Real Elekit Tube Amplifier

It’s kind of hard to believe, but I’ve found a worthy counterpart to Joey Roth’s beautiful ceramic speakers. This Case-Real Elekit tube amplifier was designed by Koichi Futatsumata and features a metal body (aluminum?) with two beautiful tubes sticking out of the top. This is definitely the grandchild of Dieter Rams. The simple design is perfect, there aren’t a ton of buttons and doodads to screw around with, exactly what this world filled with remotes with thousands of buttons needs. Keep it simple, stupid.
