By the way, I don't need to listen to your clip as I use a Pacifica on a daily basis. Oh, and thanks for the bold lettering on my sig! Glad you noticed.

Seriously sillily yours in the quest for proper etiquite in all things truly important and tolerance for the merely mundane.
This post makes the entire thread worth it. Nice.

A welcome break from the usual self-important, humorless, cynical fare.

The Pacifica is beautiful. Like a 21 year-old's butt in a bikini.

Think about it...

If it weren't Red and Cream, it wouldn't sound like it does...

Rich and creamy.

Just a thought...

Avalon 737 black face units are ugly as hell as well, and the yellow/gold trim work, knobs etc.

Joe Meek wins in the worse look EVER !!

I didnt think anything could get much uglier than my Smart C2... the pacifica looks like the official preamp of the detroit redwings.

I think the Pacifica is a beautiful piece. Better looking than in picture. I love color. It is more attractive than my Great River and is a patriotic contrast to my Blue Robbie (which also is a standout looker).
I think the looks on it are elegant. If you want to talk ugly, let's talk about Crane Song and the use of hospital basement green. Looks don't matter that much to me, since I have 2 Trakkers and a HEDD.

i'mma go ahead and revert my statement here and say, the looks of the pacifica have grown on me. I like the uniqueness, and the non-audio aesthetics. it looks pretty organic. the hardy M-1 is so ugly they don't even show you a picture of the thing... just a black and white graphic representation
