My vote is YES

My flash really washed out the display on this, but here's a picture of my old receiver under my computer desk. It also showed a lot of dust that I need to take care of

Count me in too... love that look and it really did set the Yamaha equipment apart from the others.

I have always been a fan of orange - red instruments or displays, I do not want to be distracted by the display or have it light up my room like most of the white to blue ones do.

The worst offender here is blue LED, more specifically- Onkyo and my Integra DPC-8.5 with its bright blue light right above the disc changer tray.

Naaa... buy local and save your dealer's showroom from permanent extinction!

The orange display would be great to see again, although I would be all for a color selector (maybe with the option to black out the display during movies). I've had several Alpine car decks and they have all had color selectors, usually between green/blue/red depending on the model years.

I agree, the orange displays are the best. Pioneer I think is the only one who still uses it. The blue display is hard to read in a dark room and is way to distracting. I like the dimming ability on my Onkyo but would still rather have orange.

Home theater:
Onkyo 805, Yamaha YDP2006EQ, Samson Servo 600 amp
3 EV Sentry 500 monitors across the front, 4 Mission 762i's Surrounds, SVS PB13U sub, Panasonic BDT220, Harmony 1100, Nintendo WiiU
Panasonic PT-AE8000 on a 120" 2,35:1 fixed screen

Living room system:
Sherwood/Newcastle R972, Mission 765's, SVS SBS02's, A/D/S MS3u sub, Yamaha YDG2030EQ
Yamaha KX-393 Tape deck, CDC 805 CD changer, Panasonic BD60, Sony turntable PS-T20
Panasonic TC-P50ST60, HD-PVR & WDTV Live, Harmony 900

Back in the 1990s, I had a mobile Sony discman (with car kit) which had a selectable back light to match the interior of your car. You could go from blue to green to red with the press of a button. I think it would be a good idea if Yyamaha would consider such an option.
That would be an awesome option for all AVR manufactures!!! My preference is always blue, I find it the least intrusive and it's my favorite color.

Happy Listening!!! Listen with an open mind and heart!!!

I forgot to mention Amber, which was an exact match for the interior of my aunts Nissan (late 80s, early 90s wedge shaped) sports car.
