Maybe I've lost the point to this thread, but why try to pack all that
into one box, or even why try to make a quiet box? Squeezeboxen are
networkable.... Just stick the clunky, noisy beige box in a
closet/basement/garage.... NO?

Ya, I scrapped the idea of a EPIA board awhile ago. I just can't bring
myself to hack up the Shuttle XPC box either, with just the hopes of
squeezing it into my other case. Plus, all the heat issues... it'd be an
endeavor.

I have an older Advantech biscuit board, but it's only supports Pentium
1. I wouldn't imagine the Windows client would run to well... any linux
gurus out there have experience with the SB software on a barebones
linux install on a slooooow PC such as this? If't it'd work well, I'd do
it.

I personally would pack mine into another case, which looks just like
the SB case minuse the VFD cutout and probably plus some buttons. Only
rational is it "looks cool"
