    If you must stand your speakers on a swivel chair, blue sounds much better.

    OK. Thanks for the opportunity to retort.

    If I were going to re-house the Squeezebox I'd put it in an enclosure that is actually _more_ attractive than the original (v1,2 or 3.

    So I choose to decouple rather than rigidly spike them. They do sound better up high. I'm working on front horns. FE series aren't exactly known for shaking the room, and look at the speaker for christ's sake:

    My setup below. We've got a three level house - the main setup is is in the middle (living) level).

    I'm using a Rotel pre-amp and power amp (1050) with Sonus faber Conertino Domus speakers (which look way better in real life than this crappy photo!). The SB is at the top of the device pyramid on the lower right shelf.

    Veyr nice sounding combination - especially with your more 'musical stuff' like Jazz etc, particularly strong on vocals and with soundstage way bigger than you'd expect from the speaker size.

    Downstairs, in the office, I have some Rega Jura speakers which are more suited to your modern stuff - big rock and dancey beats etc, a little less musical, a little more oomph, and with a truly huge soundstage. There are wired to the same amp, and I control the music using Moose.

    Whole thing is feeding of an infrant ReadyNAS.

    Overall, I'm very very happy with my setups - all the devices offer very good value for money, in particular the SB of course!!

    Here's mine...

    Home made amp and squeezebox. That's it. I removed my CD player and tuner as they are no longer needed.
    Speakers not shown are Quad ESL-63s.

    Thanks! The box used to be a cell phone diversity antenna amplifier housing. I picked it up at a scrap yard for about $15, then did a little finish work and built an amplifier into it. The amp is an LM3886 IC based circuit taken right off the ap note for the IC. It will deliver about 30W per channel. The box is all aluminum, and the amp chips are quite efficient (class B) so the whole thing never even gets warm.

    It is small, but quite heavy. I think it weighs around 25 lbs. I sort of overbuilt the power supply with a 330VA transformer and 160,000 uF total capacitance.

    I'll have to do something about that volume control knob one of these days...
