Hmmm, why? I don't know. To remind us to put them in an AV closet where they belong?

To match all those futurisic DLPs and LCDs I guess. to go in all those George Jetson livingrooms... Which is why I got a Pioneer Elite in piano black.


Just make sure you get one with RF remote control and hide it!

I am with batman09 on this one folks. Silver is ugly, and no I don't have the luxury of a cabinet in which to hide it.


Bring back black.

The only good part with the silver color is that it hides dust well. Although anyone who truly loves the ht setup would never let it get dusty anyways.


I prefer black, but if it works flawlessy and delivers great audio/video performance send me one that is pink with flowers on it!

seems that components colors change with time in the 80's everything was Silver then the sleek Black Component's took over for a while and now Sliver is on a comeback why I believe it because Companies have way too many Executives that have nothing better to so one of these guy s suggest that their product will have increased sales if it were to stand out from other componets so we should change out color to silver


yeah yeah says the other twenty exec's Great suggestion you just proved why we pay you that outrageous salary ............

I also do not like silver components. They reflect too much light. I like my components black with flourescent dimmers so they disappear in my home theater. Unfortunately i'm in the market for a set-top-box and if I want to get in the game then silver it is.

What's really weird is that S-A makes the 3250HD with a black face and the 3270HD with a silver face. They are both the same otherwise. The 3250 is for cableco's to rent and the 3270 is for retail sales, go figure.
