Of course. Cost is the main driver for sure. But there is still a market for nicer finishes -- looks like the XS30 with wood finish is quite popular. I think PSA nailed down the best compromise with the satin black finish default and optional, more expensive finishes.
So a few folks must think the "big ugly" look is back in vogue?
Well I wouldn't call the XV30F ugly. But you do have to agree that the look is... what's the right word? I'd say "spartan"
I'm still surprised how neat the satin black finish is (and also the overall shape on the XS15), I was expecting something much more basic.
That being said, the spartan look is not for everybody / every location. I myself would just love a bunker with a whole wall of XV30F's (considering I'd never be able to build something myself resembling notnyt's theater
, which really would be my ultimate dream HT). But since I don't have my own mancave, compromises have to be made, and the XS15 is hidden away under a table

150 Hz should be enough for anyone.
