Hi all,

I just upgraded the stereo in my office
(http://felix.monkeynoodle.org/tmp/spider_in_stereo.jpg) to a Tivoli
Model Two setup, with the subwoofer.

While it doesn't have the window-shaking high end of the Marantz with
two Bose and two Benison speakers, it is remarkably small. In fact, all
three boxes plus the Squeezebox2 fit in the same physical footprint as
the original stereo cabinet, so the music equipment is taking up less
than 1/3rd of the space that it did last week. That's important stuff in
a small Bay Area house.

The sound is good, and I find myself using the Squeezebox's volume
control more often. I don't know that I'd recommend getting the
subwoofer, it doesn't really add much depth to the already good sound
from the other two speakers. This could be because it's under the table
and aiming at my feet?

My bedroom setup is an SB1-G sitting on top of a Tivoli Model 1. Really great sound for a small room like a bedroom, and the Model 1 is *mono*.

I seem to remember someone modding an SB1/2 form factor into a case that looked just like the beautiful Tivoli enclosure. That part isn't that important to me, but I recall it looked amazing.

cheers,

I think that was me posting about my brother's craftwork, here:

yep, that's it Dean. So, you've got the cool job AND the cool Tivoli-esque squeezebox case? I'd gloat over having a Nokia 770, but you've got one of those too. Newman!

Nice case Dean.

I also use a model1 in the bedroom and a 2 in the study. Mostly because I listen to AM radio a lot and they don't look like radios.

They both sound great. Dunno why the 1 doesn't have an aux switch possie though.

They must have added that, because my Model 1 has an aux...
