There are companies which make custom face plates in addition to rack-mount modifications. I suspect they'd be willing to provide a silver front for whatever equipment you want. For a price. smile.gif

Middle Atlantic Racks is one I've seen mentioned, although I'm having some problems locating their Web site.

Chris,

Thanks! Although I don't seem to be able to find any mention of custom faceplates, their "furniture racks" certainly are drool-worthy wink.gif

If you can loose the HDMI switching option, a used Parasound Halo C1 is very close to the requirements you want (and then some). THX Ultra2 certified and such, SILVER.

You could always get a remote controled HDMI switch and semi hide it. Just a thought

No HDMI 1.4 support, which the OP wants for 3D.

As best I can tell, the items on that page are rackmounting ears or surrounds, not actually replacements for entire faceplates.

I can kinda sympathize with the OP. I like to have my equipment somewhat match up so it looks like its one complete unit. Mine's all black, so a silver unit would look weird.

Could be worse. I have OCD about the silk screened logos on my equipment. That's right, the LOGOS. frown.giftongue.gif

Don't believe everything on the Interwebz! A duck's quack DOES echo!

Based on the emoticons posted, the comment was left in jest. Like you, I understand and sympathize with the need to satisfy one's aesthetics and my wife won't let me forget it.
