Subject: [slim] Custom Case... the next evolution

If they offered a nice anodized finish and maybe a jet black option it would
sell pretty well I think, provided the price point was reasonable (maybe
around $99 for the whole kit).

I think that with the graphic SB now available some sort of premium case
offer is due.

Andrew,

Could you be a little more descriptive? Do you want a case with
rackmount ears or just sized for a 19" rack? Or both?

You can buy a rackmount box pretty cheap. You'd need to cut some metal to
mount the sqeeze box in, but it would be a pretty easy mod.

You can get this rackmount box for about $25 from digikey.

For about $20, you can get a rackmount shelf from any "pro audio" store
and put a couple of Squeezeboxen on it. Or look at the fake racks
sold by funklogic.
