Re: Blaupunkt Aspen light color change

I'm not sure but I suspect that this receiver uses lamps for 
illumination. If that's the case I'm pretty sure you can buy slip-on 
covers for the lamps to change their color. Not sure of the supplier 
though, perhaps VDO? Or you might try contacting Blaupunkt through their 
website at http://www.blaupunkt.com.

I do know that Blaupunkt's new 7-series receivers have a variable 
illumination color feature that allows 16 different illumination colors 
from green to amber to red. I have one of these on order (the Sydney 
model)--can't wait to replace the previous owner's Panasonic unit with 
all the flashing lights and tiny buttons that I have to look at three 
times to change radio stations. This unit (as are most car stereos these 
days) is a nightmare in human factors design.
