    hmmm, you could be right (you probably are, as I would have answered based on current info at that time). I have a vague recollection of that now that you mention it. I bought the backup, pulled it out of the box, set it up on my mysqueezebox.com account to make sure it all worked, then promptly put it back in the box (and it's stored in a closet at my office). And that was some time ago (time flies....2 years, 4 years? who knows....my wife tells me I don't know the difference between something that happened 2 years ago versus 15 years ago!)

    Well, one day when you open the box you might get a surprise.

    For those not liking the looks of the Transporter without knob, why not find a suitable knob and stick it on over the blanking plate.

    Below are pics of my LMS server case which houses a Raspberry Pi. Top pic is as supplied, bottom pic with a knob and LED attached, the knob does absolutely nothing.

    Squeezeboxes do sound miles better now though!

    I would really appreciate that if you could. I'm toying with getting a knob-less black SE from HotDogTec while there are still new ones around (as I've only ever owned the touch) and it'd be nice to be able to do that if I don't like the handles...

    On a different note does the Transport have essentially the same Power Supply as the Touch (i.e. voltage & amps - I think the Touch is 5V 3A IIRC).

    TIA.

    not sure, but keep in mind that the transporter power supply is built in (not an external brick).

    Ahh - okay - thanks Gary! Was hoping to use my second Shanti LPS on it...

    P.S. I'm assuming this will be controllable by iPeng like the Touch and Duet/Boom...? Anyone with a Transport use iPeng with it?

    The power supply for the Transporter is internal. Here's a lengthy thread that I believe towards the end it talks about a replacement option since the original power supply is NLA.

    You'll need the nuts as well. I got them from Home Depot but I'm not sure what size they are.
