At some point, I want a boombox with decent sound that can pull music over my network or from USB drives. At home I could always have it connected to the network for the music, but if I ever take it somewhere, it would be great to play from USB. Right now I'm thinking I should Frankenstein one together with my dad's help. It would have a Squeezebox Touch at the center, M3s as the speakers and perhaps a T-amp to drive them. My dad could help me build something to let them live together... or I could hire one of you. What do you think of this idea? How would you approach it?

Obviously, my funds are tied up for now, but it's something I've been wanting for a while. I thought it would be fun to discuss, even if I don't use the feedback right away.

That would be easier and cheaper, but I'm just not sure about the sound quality. smile Do you know anyone who has one?

How about Audiobytes with SqueezeBox?


E = MC2 = ((2M80 + VP180 + 4QS8)/(EP800 + EP500))^(ADA1500 x D2v)

I like this idea. If single box is a requirement, you could glue the Audiobytes to the Squeezebox....... smile

Gaffer tape. Since I got a roll of that, I'll never use duct tape again.

Try to convince the average person to spend $20 on a roll of tape, though.....
