I've never understood equipment makers that do not consider home theater aesthetics. Equipment makers who put bright ON-lights on the front of the equipment that can't be dimmed or turned off in settings, glossy black casings that reflect images from the TV when its on. Gold moons--I can't believe people buy those.
Don't companies that make this stuff for home theaters think about these kind of things?
The people with blacked out home theaters are the minority, though I do agree that undimmable bright lights are annoying.
As far as the Klipsch copper cones go, that's sort of become a trademark of theirs for their non-heritage home line, you see copper cones chances are it's a Klipsch speaker. Plus, if they bother you, just use the grills.
