Although a lot of folks have indicated interest in an all in one unit it
still might only amount to a tiny number of sales for Slim.

The risk of spending the substantial capital needed to design and fabricate
a "boombox" squeezebox and then only being able to sell a handfull of them
is huge... Such things have tanked small companies in the past.

I would also get an all in one unit if they were available for my bedroom,
especially if they had the option of being powered by a bunch of
rechargeable batteries too (AA size would be best) :)

Me too. When I bought the Squeezebox, I was actually looking for a clock
radio replacement. I'm running mine in the bedroom with a junky little amp
and a pair of wall-mounted speakers, but an integrated unit would be neater
and more convenient for that location.
