The title says it all. I really miss the orange glow of Yamaha's older models. You knew it was a Yamaha just from that orange glow. Now they've adopted the "me too" Blue look of every other AVR receiver manufacturer. Can we start a poll to see how many would want the orange display back?

I just bought the RX-A1030 replacing a Pioneer Elite AVR..I do like the orange display of the Elite. So, I would be interested in Yamaha going back to the orange. What I really miss is the green display of Nakamichi products. Really nice looking.

I like the white display of my current A3020, but orange is fine too.

BTW, you need to edit the title of the thread. You meant to write ' Petition' not Partition, right?

I think it is likely that the old display consumed more power, and that is the reason that they changed it.

Thats my thinking too but I would gladly pay the few extra cents a day to run that display than that non descript "blue look"

So why didn't you just start a poll?
You dont need mod's permission or anything like that.

Let me check this out. Most forums I've been on and am a member of would not let anyone start a poll. I just may have to thank you. tongue.gif

IIRC, it used to be common practice for manufacturers of after market in-car audio devices to permit an 'install time' choice of colors for the displays on their gear . . . in order to allow the installer to match the color of the display on the after market unit with other displays in the car.
