    As someone who has had a lifelong love of design, received a BS in industrial design, and worked in the field for many years you can understand why I would be coming from the opposite direction. ;)

    In my corner of the world I’ve always heard it pronounced the way that Rusty said. The same as saying Yuri.

    What exactly would you be thinking about 3-D printing? Do you have access to a printer that can create metal parts?

    I would submit your preference is a minority viewpoint, not unique, but not one held by most of us.

    FWIW: Even the 4345 has a fair amount of industrial design in evidence. ;)

    Yes, thanks Earl!

    I have a couple of them somewhere myself... the analog archives. ;)
    Always fun to take a quick spin down memory lane.

    I wouldn’t do anything about the surface rust. If you try any physical method of removing the rust, small metallic particles will inevitably get sucked into the voice coil gap. You’re best off just...

    Just wow is right!

    Personally I doubt I would buy it even if I had a need for an expensive integrated amp, but I applaud the audaciousness of the retro design.

    That was unexpected. I copied an old post and pasted it to this thread. Since it predates your post, it popped in ahead of yours.

    Hi-Fi Bling

    I am not generally a fan of bling in Hi-Fi or in general.
    MBL produce some very fine pieces of gear and impressive sounding speakers, but their aesthetics are a bit much for my taste.

    First, how many folks are still running the old 2" exit drivers? A fair number I imagine, but less and less all the time.
    Second, how many of that group have cracked...

    I have to think that the 2344a horns must not be that tough to find or that costly to purchase if you can wait. Maybe someone on the forum has a spare set?
