    So the square in the middle is a woofer? Or maybe a passive radiator?

    After much hesitation and checking each step, Muse is now up and running.

    Volume is a little too low for my taste, but decent sound quality. Any way to adjust the base volume level?

    Next step is to try the plugin.

    Low volume was first impression but enough for my intended use - background in a quiet room not competing with other noises.
    I'm using to replace a DAC32/Logitech Mini Boombox combo. The Boombox although smaller seems preferable to Muse but it may just be volume.

    Try it out - good sound for size, battery and BT. It was maybe Ç60-80 when it was released

    I guess it could use the pcp Bluetooth feature.

    I never opened it when, many years ago, I realised it couldn't be used with LMS. How things have moved on.

    Cool, thanks for confirmation. I ordered one of these on Amazon.de (Amazon Germany). Unfortunately this product is not delivered to The Netherlands. But since I live close to the German border, I opted for delivery at a pick up location in Germany, just over the border with The Netherlands. I expect I can pick up the product there in the weekend.

    Well, boosting the volume at low frequencies should be possible with the graphic equalizer that in included in the SqueezeESP32 plugin.
    After successful installation of the plugin, you will find the graphic equalizer under LMS Player tab => ESP Muse player name => ESP32 settings.

    I advise not to boost the low frequency range too much, to avoid clipping of the amplifier, or hitting the excursion limit of the drivers, when increasing the overall volume level.
    With such small size drivers it is simply impossible to reach high SPL levels at low frequencies.
