If you want to tune-up the Squeezebox into a homely compact design, you may use the following recipe:

Ingredients:
Wood cabinet (walnut)
Squeezebox 2
Speaker system (in my case a Creative I-Trigue 2200)
Plexiglas and some other small parts, like screws, mounting stuff and a "woodworm if available"


Some pictures attached

Regards
Rolf

Now that's a good looking system! Is the SqueezeBox still inside its original case in there?

That looks great. Do you have any internal pictures? I have been thinking about doing something very similar.

Thanks! It was my intention to build the case as small as possible. Therefore I have removed the original case.

This is pretty cool and retro looking, and perhaps a bit Scandanavian.

How about some good quality oil on the fine wood finish now!

I wasn't able to get the link to the picture - could you send it again?

Thanks for the tip. The pictures are not current, in the meantime I put some wood oil on the case and it looks much better now.

a "woodworm if available"

What's a woodworm? When I google it, it's a bug.

Hi Michael

It is not that serious matter … a woodworm describes a worm or an insect larva that bores into wood… In Switzerland we use the expression "Holzwurm".

Very very nice enclosure. It reminds me of the Tivoli Audio units I own.

Here's a link to the Tivoli Model Satellite Unit:

Looking at your picture and Tivoli's makes me think that maybe Slim Devices should do some sort of co-marketing/manufacturing thing with squeezebox hardware embedded in Tivoli's integrated Amp/speaker enclosures. Would be an awesome match.

Agreed, Bradley. Seeing Rolf's beautiful enclosure had me thinking that a dual Tivoli/Squeezebox enclosure would be most sweet.

see post #19 for a pic of how well the two fit together

Both power supplies (SB2 and Amplifier) are plugged to this outlet. The attached picture shows the assembly inside the case... obvious not that common industry standard, but sufficient for personal use.
