    100% Waf!

    Took a long time to figure it out (didn't have any AV on this floor of the house at all) - couldn't afford trial and error!
    Sounds pretty good too, although I'm no golden ears. Its primarily for ambience and entertaining, not 'listening'.
    The server-side still needs work for WAF, but I'm on track there too!

      You don't seriously mean to leave these fine speakers on the floor?

        I know, I know - and why do I have a CD transport too? Speaker stands that meet the WAF is likely an almost insurmountable task - I'll probably have to invent a Klingon cloaking device!

          Don't laugh! This is the squeezebox in one of our bedrooms. It's hooked up to a Sonic T-Amp and some Eltax Milennium Minis. The speakers aren't the best out there, but the system still sounds pretty good and is nice and compact.

          but it's not irrelevant - it's a hippopotamus.

            I'm not laughing but...

            I would imagine you have some pretty good sound absorption to eliminate rear reflections from the speakers there. :-D

                I really like it. If only the SB3 and the T-Amp were integrated....

                    You can't really read the SB3 display in my last message, so...

                      Two things Dem,

                      where'd you change the message and how's your receiver staying cool?

                        Your wife prefers speakers sitting on the floor? I think this is bad feng shui.

                          My Squeezebox setup

                          The receiver is a 1978 vintage Pioneer SX-1980 rated at 270 watts per channel RMS.

                          The speakers (not shown) are Vandersteen 2Cs along with a Vandersteen 2W powered subwoofer.

                          The Squeezebox is connected using the analog outputs (I plan to add an external DAC later) using Kimber PBJ interconnects.

                          Sounds fantastic!!!

                            In my defence, this is the only place in the house where there are any cuddly toys! It's the top of a wardrobe - that's where these things get shoved. I will admit to having a mini Max from Where The Wild Things Are though (of course!). Now you mention it, I've no idea where that's got to.

                              wow! that looks like an amazing reciever. you can't beat good quality vintage gear (my parents early '80s B&O music center is another good example)

                                I changed the message with the SlimServer Web Interface. You can find the documentation by clicking on the Technical Information link on the SlimServer main page.

                                The receiver can get a bit warm, but it's several inches deeper than the TiVos on top of it so it ventilates OK. Also, it has a fan which comes on if it gets too unhappy.
