I never liked the idea of a white finish audio video device. Call me old fashion, but a matte or shiny Apple-white gadget looks strangely odd on my conventional all-black component shelf. It’s not just the color mismatch, it reflects light greater than the conventional darker or gun-metal components in a dim home theater environment. What do I know? We’ve seen more audio video devices caught up with Apple-white fever; JVC is the latest manufacturer to join the bandwagon.
