That would certainly be effective, but I'm not sure the appearance would pass the "Wife Acceptace Factor".

The front panel is black/dark grey so it should blend in pretty well.

Really admin?

You'd rather have my question buried ~580 pages into a general "all of Emotiva" thread with thousands of unrelated questions rather than under its own descriptive thread title?

This is quite ridiculous...

This is not my picture, but it illustrates the problem:
These work very well:

I have them on all my electronics including the Emotiva stuff.

Thanks, I hadn't heard of these!

I was considering essentially cutting my own out of a leftover sheet of screen door tint film, but this ought to be MUCH easier, and look much neater!

Do you find they go on cleanly over Emotiva's weird rounded standby-buttons without crinkling, folding or otherwise looking ugly?

It moulds pretty well, it has a little bit of stretch to it. It can be a little fiddly, tweezers can help. If you use a size larger than needed for large domed shapes it creates a kind of skirt which can look good. Or press it on the centre of the dome but do not flatten it down so it creates a "floating disc".

You can also buy a sheet of the stuff for larger area/cut to fit and you can also layer it for a darker tint.
