Has anyone seen one of the new colored SBs in person? Are they the same
material? They look more shiny but you can never tell from such air-brushed
looking photos.

Thanks,
Phillip

Hi Phillip,

I'm the one responsible for "airbrushing" the photos and there was
precious little done of that. There was a little color correction and
a shadow removed, but that's it.

The paints on the new units are actually automotive paints and are
quite striking in person. (The photos don't do them justice in my
opinion.) I particularly like Purple Haze. That and Tangerine Dream
are the ones that keep getting moved around to people's desks around
the office. Rhapsody In Blue is quite striking and Triple Platinum is
(so far) our best seller. Not a dud in the bunch.

Of course, the classic Back In Black, with its soft touch paint is
still my favorite. :)

Hi Dean,

Is it possible to buy the new case alone as an upgrade. I would like to upgrade
one of my black soft touch SB?

Now that would be a Good Idea (TM) (R)!

I would even go for a four shiny case pack upgrade, so I can change the
look depending on my interior or mood.

Both Dean and Sean have answered this a few times. Cases are allocated to new
squeezeboxes only for the time being. Production levels are not high enough to
support case upgrades at this time.
