    that gloss black looks good but I really wonder how practical it will be. At least the lighter colors dont show dust and fingerprints....looks like we are repeating the 80's with all audio and video equipment being gloss black

    So, are we taking bets on whether FedEx delivers them to the rest of us today or not?

    I've had the HR21-700 and now the HR21-200 for some time in total, and I can assure you that it will look as slick months from now as it does the day you install it. Several visitors to my Home Theater have commented that the HR21 there is "a really state-of-the-art looking" device. Enjoy.
    Put me down for $5.....oh....I guess you'd like to know on which side.... :lol: :lol:

    We are actually rooting for all of you to get them and do the testing process over the weeks ahead. It appears that we have a great group of testers on the -100 team. :)

    I agree in that they do look sleek and top of the line in that black gown.

    I believe someone quoted Earl as having said Friday and Saturday so I think chances are good. My fingers are crossed for you.

    it looked good from what I could see. I have always liked black equipment and was just getting used to the silver and now they have pulled the rug out from under me once again and gone back to black. I am happy it is gloss and not matte.....My Sony receivers are black and so are my DVD players so it really is a better match for me all around....

    I hear ya there. EVERYTHING else where the HR21 is going is black, the R15 has always looked out of place. Plus my new Sammy is actually gloss black like the HR21 is, so it should all look real good together, once I actually get the thing of course. :)

    I thought I'd hold off on that other particular photo for a couple of reasons....yes, all my Home Theater equipment is black in a rack...this photo you can see...

    I think you can pretty quickly spot the HR21....if you click on it a second time, it will enlarge...

    that looks nice. I love the rack idea. I have had thoughts of cutting a rack sized hole in the wall and installing one myself. Does yours pull out and rotate 90 degrees ? Your stereo rack of course. I had to say that because the Ogre is always watching and waiting for an opening like that...hehe
