Sorry, I can't say that's perfect without knowing anything about her.

The 1161 is on my list, so reading about this issue is interesting. From the online manual:

“The LED will then pulse white on and off, indicating that the supervising microprocessor is powered up and the amp is ready to be turned on using the front panel Standby button.“

The LED changes colors, and intensities, showing various states do the amp. Seems like an update via Ethernet, or direct settings through an IP controlled option (Open Home, or BoulderNet) could tone the brightness down.

Yes, they do have software control of the LED to make it pulse, they could make it only pulse so bright, unless "pulse" is just a mode a microcontroller does automatically.

I don't find the LEDs on either my 2100 or 1000 series amps to be overly bright, they don't bother me at all.

You're likely not using them as part of a home theater in a darkened room.

I am driving a 5.1 setup in a dedicated room, 2100 series for front left, right and center, and older 1000 series for rear speakers. My projector is pretty bright, 1800lm, but even during dark scenes I don't find the LEDs to be distracting. It would be easy enough to mask off the LEDs though if I did. I also have the 1008 phono stage, but that is not powered on when watching movies.

I don't have any experience with 1100 series equipment, maybe it is different?
