Simple. It's the color you love(amongst the available ones).

I like blue when in a standby mode; green in a working mode; red when some s()t happens.

I hate blue as I find it makes my eyes go funny, it is very noticeable and distracting in an unpleasant kind of way.

If you make a front panel from lexan it's edges and engravings will glow. I'll make you a photo of my Tower amp later at night.

Blue has a "poisonous" feel, doesn't it?

I like the nature color- Green.

I dislike led. They make equipment look less classy.

Give me neon !

I used red, then switched to blue and had so many complaints that I went back to red.

If it's a two LED system with one power and one standby, I'll do white for the power and red for the "operate", simply because it's an instinctive "danger" colour that HV is there.

Cheers!
