    I was hoping some of you older folks like myself who grew up in the 60's and 70's might be able to help me. My colleague at work is working on an article for a design publication and we are wracking our brains for hi-fi equipment that were iconic of the first usage of brushed aluminum front bezels.

    The main image we've found is a Marantz 10B tuner. I'm thinking that Sony had some early stuff, but the reputation of Japanese products then was not as it is now. So I'm looking for American manufacturer examples or sites with info.

    Thanks!
