That is how I want my gear to look!

If you're someone who designs synths or amps or computers for a living, please spend some time looking at the Japanese Product Design Database, a crazy (and ironically badly designed) collection of great Jap product design from the 70s and 80s. Then maybe we'll end up with more gear looking like these Yamaha YHL-003 Headphones or Technics RS-777 reel-to-reel, and less looking like the M-Audio Audiophile USB.

Those Yamaha headphones were designed by F.A. Porsche and were fantastic to look at, but sounded rubbish.. still, my search for a pair on Ebay has yet to yeild any fruit, so the search continues.... anyone have a pair they wanna sell an incurrable nostalgic???
