I wonder if you think that some of the later Onkyo receivers, with folded front panels are ugly? I got used on receivers design with flat front panels, in brushed aluminium. They fold more and more, i.e. TX-SR603 was less folded, TX-SR604 some more and TX-SR605 is pretty much. After I saw the latest Onkyo DVD-HD device and how ugly it is, I was so irritated by design, beacuse I like Onkyo sound, so that I decied to ask if you think the same. I got old Onkyo TX-SV454 and I remember some higer end series, like TX-DS545 and they use one of the best designs I saw, useing flat front panels. There is less and less receivers today with such classic design, i.e. Sony 910, but still not as nice as they were before.
