    My wife cares more about looks than sound.
    She commented last night on how her sister's family HT "matches and looks all neat, all same color".
    It is just a $400 Sony HTIB, and additional CD changer and VCR with TV. All Sony.

    Ours is totally different for each.
    JVC WS TV, JVC HIFI VCR, HK AVR630, NADT533 single DVD player, Klipsch Speakers and a Denon CD changer.

    Just ranting. [​IMG]

    I will have her read this thread tonight or tomorrow.

    I like the looks of yours much better myself.. :)
    lol

    Make sure she understands that performance is important to you.

    I had worked for years to keep it all black. Since before xmas this is totally blown out the water. Silver HDTV, Silver HDTV Tuner, and now my new DCDi DVD player is silver.

    Denon 4802 = Black
    Sony CD Mega Changer = Black
    Older DVD player Black
    SVHS VCR = Black
    Denon Laser Disc player = Black

    I use shelving above my HDTV to hold it all, I have since added some very light duty black curtains not quite sheer but almost, so I can hide it all, some light can still get through them, but the remotes are less responsive now. Looks nice and tidy when closed.

    Ask her if she wears a blouse form the same co. that made her slacks or jeans.
    The same nylons as the dress maker?

    Of course you can mix!
    People do it all the time.
    Not every company excels at all things.

    What I tell my customers is when you purchase a system, pick a manufacturer that does that component the best. IE: Yamaha Reciever, but Boston Speakers. Yamaha doesnt make very good speakers, but they make great receivers, and vice versa.

    That is the thing. I didn't really plan color wise. I just bought whatever I think has the best performance/price ratio at the time.
    Oh well. I guess silver/black combos are not too bad. I am thinking of just rearranging it in a way that the silver gears are on top, and the black at the bottom or vice versa.
    But then again, my AVR630 is silver and black. Urrgggghhhhh.

    Then put the 630 in the middle so it's the segway from black into silver LOL [​IMG]

    I thought about that but it is by far, the heaviest unit so it should be at the bottom. Thanks for the suggestion though.
    I might put it on the second the bottom instead, since only the VCR is the other silver in the rack (HDTV is silver).[​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
