Just so the rest of us can be jealous.

Of course configurations aren't going to change, but it's the variety of locations that could be interesting.

Here's my living room setup...
From left to right:
Boom!, Mission 783 speaker, Duet, Denon 4802, Definitive speaker, DirectTV HD DVR, Sony DVD, Transporter, Mission 783 speaker, LG 50" HDTV ontop, Velodyne SPL sub hidden behind.

So why would I have a Boom! on my fireplace right next much more powerful gear? I do my SuperDateTime plugin development from my couch and I needed a Boom nearby for testing. Having both the Transporter and the Boom responding to IR remote control signals FOR MONTHS was a bit annoying though!

The room is a very large loft with 15" timber ceilings. Surprisingly the Boom output fills the area pretty well, but the other gear of course does a better job. For fun maybe I'll try out how the Boom sounds if I connect it with the Velodyne SPL sub...

I think the Boom will be moving upstairs to my bedroom soon... Up there I currently have a SB3 with some powered JBL Studiograde Professionals. It'll be interesting to see the sound difference up there.

Boom enjoying a Sunday afternoon in my 'yard'. There's a glimpse of the hammock that I've been meaning to try headphones in, but the sound quality is so good at low volumes that I don't really need to worry about disturbing anyone anyway. At least not like I used to when I blasted music out the front door as the alternative.

The chef is entitled to a little entertainment I feel :) Photos taken after this afternoon's festivities.

I call it the BoomGrill (tm)!
It appears to be sitting on top of your hob - did Caleb's environment testing stretch to this?

If I had a Boom, I wouldn't want BBQ fat spitting all over it!

I did keep an eye on it from a spitting point of view, no problems at all luckily. Obviously the burner directly under the Boom wasn't switched on :)

From looking at these pictures, - it looks like the boom/speakers point upward and not straight out. Is that correct?

The whole front panel is angled very slightly from the vertical, maybe 3 or 4 degrees.

Much like the SB3/Classic, or the Controller in its cradle. The wall/cabinet mounting hardware holds the Boom with its face vertical, though. The top of the Boom is *almost* perpendicular to the face (slanted "back" when on a tabletop, *almost* horizontal in the wall/cabinet mount). The top and bottom are not parallel, and the back is curved near the edges -- I'd guess this is in part for better acoustics (help eliminate resonances or somesuch; it's been a long time since I built a speaker enclosure).

"I'd guess this is in part for better acoustics"

Or maybe something to do with reflections affecting the VFD?
I have a wall mounted SB3 and it was originally set with a vertical screen at eye level then I had to adjust slightly to reduce glare.
I also have one in a custom enclosure in my sun room/conservatory and its very hard to read sometimes with background light/reflections.

Its not all bad though, it gives me an excuse to get a controller. ;-)

Two exciting views of a BOOM in a kitchen. Thrilling stuff eh?

I think the remote is trying to escape.

Check out those knives in the corner. I nearly chopped an entire finger off the other day when I mistook it for a leek.

Good idea with the photos of the Boom, so non-ownwers (for the time being) can get a good idea about its' size.
Is it really that small??

Depends on what your definition of small is! But as many of us have said, we can't believe how good it sounds for how small it is.

Does it have rubber feet on the bottom so as not to slide around when pushing buttons? Also, I notice in several of the pictures that it seems to be a fingerprint magnet.

Thanks for giving a link to your picture gallery - I was really interested to see a Boom on the under-shelf mounting bracket. My Boom's just turned up and I'm planning my new kitchen, so to see what the Boom looks like slung under a shelf was really good. Was it hard to do; I imagine as space is tight it's a bit of a fiddle?


No, it was easy. I just removed the shelf board and screwed the top part of the bracket to it. I also fixed the lower part of the bracket to the Boom and then I fixed this to the bracket part on the board. It was then easy to put the whole thing back to the shelf.

If you want to adjust the vertical alignment (you can shift it by about +-5cm or so) you need enough space "behind" the bracket, i.e. between the wall and the bracket, for the wrench. But I guess it would be possible to align it closely to the wall if you add the Boom as the last step.

Btw, before I had the Boom bracket I used two (slightly modified) flower box brackets. Unfortunately, no picture exists of that setup. :-)

I have my remote magnetically attached to an appliance in the kitchen as well. It's a genius master stroke! Always just where you need it (over the stove) and kept out of the way of the messy work surfaces.

Here you go, in the living room (kitchen behind me left, then dinning and living room). The boom sound's good where it is and easily fills the area. I'll upload a photo of my Squeezebox in the Lounge later.
