View Full Version : How much demand for an audio rack sized Squeezebox?

The problem with this is that the potential market for it is tiny (since it
would be worthless when out of your network range). Probably better to just
take your squeezebox and hook up some battery powered speakers.

Or at the other end of the scale, how about a SqueezeBox-BoomBox - I'm
thinking a nice little portable unit with built in speakers/amp and battery
powered - ideal for putting out in the garden (or kids room) and connecting
wirelessly to the network in the house - I'm not sure how batteries would
handle the wireless connection, but it they were rechargable so you could
keep it plugged in and charged when not in use it'd be great! - Could be
finished in the same sort of rubberised plastic as the squeezebox.
