I just sync'd with svn trunk and noticed this doc:

http://svn.slimdevices.com/trunk/docs/squeezebox3/Squeezebox-v3-Owners-Guide.pdf?rev=4743&view=log

Looks nice!

Expect an announcement soon... :)

Ah I thought it would be unlike SlimDevices to make such a big slip-up.
Announcement today surely?

I'm hoping it's just the SB2 in a new box, then I'll have no reason to
be depressed.

I thought the bottom bit was a speaker and got all excited, but actually it's just a shiny bit of metal. :-( Still, it does look very nice!

I like that the headphone socket has moved to the back, and the arial
has gone.
My SB2 looks rather untidy now I've an IR Blaster sticking out of the
headphone socket.

I don't like the extra height though!

It looks quite flat. With some handy work, I bet you could stick it on
the wall. Drool...

It does look good, but the height would definitely be a problem in some situations. The SB2 that's connected to my hifi fits nicely into a gap on top of another device. With the new one, I wouldn't be able to fit it in. However, I'd like to put a product in my bedroom and kitchen, coupled with some small speakers. The new product would go very well in this situation. I imagine they'll keep offering the "classic" case, so this won't be an issue.

Yes it does look very nice, the height won't bother me but I can imagine it will impact on some set up's.

Shame it doesn't look like it can be wall mountable (the sockets look like they stick out from the back) as that would be perfect for my planned set up in my kitchen and bedroom.

I can't wait to find out what other goodies are packed into this.

lovely! let's hope the new look gets it on some magazine front covers

a wall mount and clip-on side speakers would make a perfect one-cable
minisystem... then snap a battery pack on the bottom for a boombox...
please?

I see minimum hardware requirements for a windows server have gone up to 733MHz Pentium.

I wouldn't worry too much, I'm running 6.2 on a 400Mhz without any problems and it only has 128Mb RAM!

Interesting thought! I think the new formfactor might be easier to be
integrated in some kind of slimblasterdock...

Which is the speed (probablly really a P-2) that I was buying in October
1999. So the minimum is a six year old computer. What's the Moore's Law
factor for that long?

(using all possible hands and feet) between 4 and 5 times. Which is about right. Current machines are 3.5 gig or so, about 4-5 times a 733 Meg.

Interesting thought! I think the new formfactor might be easier to be integrated in some kind of slimblasterdock...I was going to say it would make it easier to mount in my DJ case ... but the "leaked" document doesn't contain dimensions...

As long as it didn't get any wider, I should be OK mounting it on 19" rack face plates ...

802.11g as well

802.11g as wellSB2 can already do that, no?

Paul Webster

11g - Yes - SB2 has it.
For those that have not downloaded the full manual ... or maybe do not know how to ... there are some extracted photos in the other thread.
