For $10 more than the SLiMP3, does this mean the slimp3 will go
away? Or will it be getting a little price drop?

Glad to see you back active on the list Sean.. :)

RE: The Roku and the new Squeezebox. Will there be any more new
product announcements soon? Hopefully something along the lines
of a larger display version? I have to use the double text size to be
able to read anything, but I lose all the nice features of the 2 line
display, and EVERYTHING has to scroll.. I would love to hear about a
larger version. hehe

It's been a wicked couple of months here but now that squeezebox
production is in full swing, I'll be spending more time here.

We've never announce products until they exist.

Can't comment except: I saw the 512x32 at CES... it looks like
something you'd see on a wall in an airport. They're also not cheap at
all.

Maybe with a video chip in it so I can play all my mp2's on the TV?

Dear Sean,
What about the possibility of an output that would display
what is playing on a TV if the larger display is expensive.
It really is hard to read Squeezebox from a distance of a
couch at 10-12' away.

Just a thought,

Michael

UK Prices currently
Squeezebox - preorder 212.76 plus VAT = 249.99
SliMP3 Player 178.72 plus VAT = 210.00

Cannot belive we are now at $1 = 1 when current exchange rate is 1 USD =
0.543239 GBP
Still I am well impressed with my "slimpy", just wish I had waited for the
Sqeezebox ( released 1 day after received slimpy :( )
