surprise to enter the top 10 sexiest console and see that the console, where you work every day is one of them.(The console of that photo is our Raindirk LN 3 console before its completion and subsequent sale)
Here I have some photos of the same console in its current location and its current form

The Dymaxion Console Page




An excerpt from a Mix Magazine article, written by Rick Clark -

At the heart of Sixteen Ton's (Nashville Recording Studio, owned by Danny White) control room is a visually stunning, custom-built console, inspired by the Art Deco era. Sitting in front of the board almost feels like being in the cockpit of some classic WW II β€” era B-52. β€œWe even went to the point of finding new old-stock Bakelite knobs from the late 1940s for the controls,” enthuses White, adding, β€œThe curved mahogany legs are also very 1940s and the perfect complement to the control surface.”

The guts of the console, which took three years to design and build, feature pure Class-A discrete tubes on the input side, and the monitor section is Class-A discrete transistor, based around the John Hall β€” designed (Langevin, Altec, etc.) SPA 690 amp block. There are more than 130 of these blocks in the console! The inputs employ 6072A tubes on the input and output stages, balanced by custom-wound transformers by Tom Reichenbach of Cinemag Inc. (Los Angeles). The design and electronic topology was done by Ian Gardiner of Boutique Audio and Design and Steve Firlotte of Inward Connections, also in L.A. The console is driven by a tube power supply designed by Steve Barker in L.A. β€œThe design philosophy was minimalistic: straight-ahead hi-fi tube/transistor hybrid with minimal signal path, all hand-wired to boot,” says White.

1975 Siemens console

I fell in love when I saw this beauty the first time a couple of years ago. And finally, after long negotiations, I could manage to get it. The condition is superb, it has 24 V276 discrete pre amps, 24 discrete W295b eqs, U273b compressors and six original API 550a modules in it. It's disasembled in my storage room now and I'm really looking forward to set up a new studio again. I think it's top-sexy...
