It is; which is "weird"...because the $3k Rhumba has them standard, and the $7500 Rhythm needed the update.  ???

I'm a Black guy; but evidently, it's only a $100 option.

If the option was reversed....I would have gladly paid the $100 for the silver version.   ;)

Sadly....The only way for me to pull the trigger on a Rumba/Rhythm is for me to sell my Accuphase and then my Mc pre.....and finding a buyer is growing slimmer.  :(

Lavon...I'm talking to a dealer, about a Black one (and/or, any discount to be had  ;))

But if Silver were my preference; I think I'd be chatting this guy up https://www.audiogon.com/listings/tube-backert-labs-rhumba-1-1-preamp-with-upgrades-2016-12-07-preamplifiers-66221-stanley-ks
