    I've almost decided to get a AVR300. I guess after i borrow one this weekend should aid my decision.

    I would get a black one..... don't like silver i want to HEAR my audio and SEE my picture.. not what is producing it :) (and i personally think silver looks cheap.... though the Arcam gear is a little nicer in this regard than many)

    Wondering if there are any pics somewhere online of a Black one.

    I remember seeing a pic of another Arcam piece that was black.... but it still had silver buttons (hmmmmm) is this also the case with the AVR300?

    I have a black AVR300 and it looks the business. It does have silver buttons but it does not detract from the looks. In fact whilst typing this message I have found a picture of a black one.

    Cool... thanks for that.

    Yeah looks good.... the silver volume knob seems a bit "stated" but hmmm
    (one can at least see it in the dark to turn it down when the remote has fallen into the couch) haha :)

    The black AVR300 looks much better in life than in that picture.

    I thiunk Arcam DIVA's all look better in black than in silver- my first thought seeing a silver one was "Plain" while I found the blackies "Chique".

    yeah i sore some other black (well almost grey) arcam stuff instore today next to the silver.... definately better..... if the volume was black (buttons still sliver) then it would be perfect
