    Yeah they are still stylish to this day IMO. That pio a-90 is a serious amp!! I also have the little brother a-80 but it is not working at the moment and sitting in the repair shop.

    Also that harman kardon tuner is very well built and picks up stations with amazing clarity. I know they are pretty much outdated but it is fun to play around with.
