Hi

The case looks fantastic - very innovative and sleek! I have been looking
for something similar but failed to find anything with that "design" look
that would compliment my separates hi-fi. It really is something that Slim
Devices ought to think about - I think it would help put the SqueezeBox out
of the geek/hobbyist arena and more squarely in the home user/hifi area.

Would you think about making another box (just the box) for sale? I'd be
keen!

Good luck with he contest - you'd get my vote!

Nick

It's highly unlikely I will be making/selling these as the cost is
high. It's possible I could look into a batch of them, but I doubt
there iss enough interest... once again, due to cost. Most folks just
aren't willing to spend $200-$400 for a case.

I do have one faceplate (works with G1 and G2 players) /rear panel
(works with G1 players) that will be up for sale in the near future. I
have to work on the finish before I sell it. I want to finish my
upgrade first too. Just keep an eye out.

I'm NOT familiar with most these functions, assuming this info I
copied from a post is still accurate. If I wanted to group them by
relative function, what would be logical? I have 4 and 7 pin DIN
connectors I want to play with. This is what I best guessed...
opinions from the guru's?

grouping 1-4 are no brainers - fills out a 4 pin DIN
grouping 11,12,16,17,18,14,15 - fills out a 7 pin DIN
grouping 5,6,7,8,9,10,15 - fills out a 7 pin DIN

1 gnd
2 +5V
3 +3.3V
4 +2.5V
5 synchronous serial debug output, clock
6 synchronous serial debug output, data
7 i2c clock
8 i2c data
9 infrared input/monitor
10 general-purpose i/o (doesn't do anything yet)
11 s/pdif enable indicator (may be used to drive remote amplifier turn-on)
12 s/pdif output 0 to 3.3V
13 ethernet activity LED (may be re-purposed later)
14 ethernet link LED ""
15 decoder reset line (not really useful)
16 mixer input: analog left
17 mixer input: analog right
18 mixer input: s/pdif (0-3.3V CMOS input)
