The Valve amplifier BLOCK by Mateusz Główka was a final semester project at the Academy of Fine Arts in Cracow, Poland. The design looks amazing and could definitely be sold in stores. It was built according to Hi-Fi audio rules so that it could operate legitimately as an amp. Główka says that the "components which spread most electromagnetic interference are placed in closed compartments further away from audio lines."

The Valve amplifier BLOCK is featured in several different colors and designs ranging from color and wood styles to pure chrome. Główka created the device with cleanliness in mind -- it features hinges, so users can lift up the main sound board and dust the amplifier without having to disconnect any wires. The gorgeous images of the Valve amplifier BLOCK were captured by photographer Przemek Szuba.
