I've never thought of it like that. But could you not make custom stuff, swap it out, and keep the old wrapped up in a soft cloth, in a bag, in a drawer somewhere? Then when it came time to sell you could put the old stuff back on and use the custom stuff as a "bonus" to help the sale. Just a thought.
When I was a kid I liked the big rack handle bars on equipment. I wonder if someone has done that to Emotiva stuff? I'm not sure I'd like it anymore, but it would be cool to see.
I just like the stock silver trim myself. Brushed black and silver go well together. Eye of the beholder I guess.
My DIY sub amp has BMF handles, but they are black not silver. Handles, with rear screw mounting, would be tricky to fit to an Emotiva case, their trim screws are front mounting.
Sure I could keep the original trims (and I most certainly would) but if someone wanted to buy say my ERC-3, USP-1 and a pair of XPA-1L's (I'm just about to order one) they wouldn't match. Kinda ruins the idea of selling a matched set of Emotiva stereo equipment. Unless I sell them with my own design trims, not Emotiva originals which fails the "just run in", "in their original boxes", "unmarked" and "pristine original condition" selling pitch.
