Beautiful looking stereo equipment doesn't need to be hid. Don't buy ugly and you will be fine.

I care about sound quality, however just like everything else I demand my stereo equipment to look lovely. For me that is smooth simplistic black faceplates with as few controls as possible and only the turn-on light. Speakers in beveled enclosures made with nice looking high quality wood and acoustically transparent but physically opaque grill cloths on so the speakers themselves are hidden. Equipment stands made of nice looking wood that compliment the decor rather than utility-looking ugly metal.

Just ask two questions: Is it pretty? Is it ugly? If it's pretty and sounds great buy it, if it's ugly most women will hate it no matter what it sounds like.
