I use a small amp from RCA that I got at Radio Shack. Don't know if you can
get it over on your side of the pond... It fit's in a small drawer in my
living room. Not Audiophile, but it sounds good to me.

Subject: [slim] Dell Digital Receiver / Amp

Hi There,

I have a Squeezebox and am rather pleased with it, however for an install in
bathroom, i've already put some nice Linn Sweetspot speakers in, and was
going to
use a squeezebox with an amp in hidden in a cuboard near by. However fnding
small amp that is reasonable and doesn't cost a fortune is a pain.

So i've been offered a Dell Digital Receiver, similar to the Rio/Sonic Blue
and this has an internal 10w per chanel amp onboard. Will it work with the
slimserver, as i don't want two different music servers.

Or does anyone know of a reasonable small amp, or power amp as it doesn't
need to
have more than one input and the squeezebox does volume anyway.

Have seen the Cyrus range which have a nice current sensing technology which

switches on and off, but at 400-600 new and even 200ish ebay second hand
models, its a bit costly.

I know this has been asked before, i just can't find the answer. After i
hymn a piece of music and now have a M4A file, how do i get slimserver
to recognize it and the squeezebox to play it......
