I have a hard time when buying audio/video components because of my slight OCD. I'm not brand specific or a brand loyalist at all, just for some reason it bugs me to see different brand names on my shelf. Kinda sucks because I know that mixing and matching can be the best way to get the best quality and sometimes the better deal. I can ignore the differing brand names for the most part but color I cannot. Theres no way I could have a grey/silver receiver and a black DVD player, I just couldn't handle that.
I hear you on that. I have OCD when it comes to being clean, especially in my media room. The carpets must have the vac lines, no fingerprints on anything, pillows just right on the couch, and computer desk completely straight and clean (The rest of the house, I'll let the wife deal with!
). All of my components do not match brand wise, but all are black, to go with the rest of the room's color scheme.
