Please can SlimDevices make a Squeezebox 3 that is in-wall mounted and includes a keypad. I love the LCD panel and look of the Squeezebox 3 but I want to bury it in the wall.

Do you REALLY want to cut a hole in your walls for the Squeezebox and wiring? And what happens when the new and improved Squeezebox 4 comes out? Alternatively, why not just mount a shallow shelf on the wall for the SB? Regardless, you still need to deal with the wires.

As the internal walls are plasterboard it is very easy to drop down wiring from above for power connectivity and speakers. Placing into the void would make a very neat solution

I agree that a flush-mounted Squeezebox with a built in keypad and a
slot with a door (into which you could store the remote) would be
nice, but I don't think you're likely to see it built. People have
expressed interest in a Squeezebox that had something along the line
of the Audiotron's knob for years.

However, it doesn't look to me like it would be too difficult to put
the SB 3 in the wall if you're willing to modify the stand on the
back and are handy with a rotary tool.

Kevin,

You are right Kevin fairly easy to get the unit into the wall. The bigger problem is controlling it through a flush keypad instead of the remote

If you're going to build a hole in the wall for it, what if you built
in a little slot where you could put the remote? Or have you
explored althernative remote control options, e.g. Nokia 770 or one
of the phones that supports Sailing Clicker?

Just a couple of thoughts.
