Black is objectively better and anything that anyone else says is definately incorrect
I have an AV cabinet with a solid door, so can't see the colour of my equipment - which is a mix of silver (Arcam), black (Sony, Pioneer) and tasteless dark brown-black (I'm looking at you V+ HD box!).
AV: Marantz SR7009; Monitor Audio RS-LCR, Silver 8i, RXFX; Pioneer KRP500a; Sony BDP-S760HiFi: Arcam 85; Acoustic Energy Compact 1; Arcam DV79 (as CDP), ProJect Debut II
Need to consider whether the colour of your cables goes better with black or silver
And at the last moment I changed my mind and went for the PM 6004 in Black, to that I also got a pair of Boston A 26 in Black.
Hope it will be a nice match
I don't think you will be disapointed all my a/v gear is in black & i think it looks a lot smarter.
Silver, I've got dark oak finish speakers sitting on a dark oak cabinet and the silver Denon amp sat between them really stands out. I guess if I wanted my sytem to blend in black would have been better but I want people to notice it. However, as some people have said some items and makes look cheap in Silver.
Yep.... You guessed it..... Silver....
My Roksan kit was all silver and I would have preferred the Arcam to be silver but couldn't find one, so it's their blackish version! Swapped my black stand for silver to help lighten the room colour scheme.
Black for me, well mostly black; as Primare gear in black comes with silver knobs & buttons!
Best of both worlds?
My Silver Yamaha AS 2000 amp/sacd units with their wooden side cheeks look cool..........8)
Which ever's on offer! :twisted:
