    Wish List for SlimDevices

    Hello,

    I do not know if it is appropriate to post this here, if it's the wrong place please forgive me...

    I have a wish list for SlimDevices, being a happy owner of 3 Squeezeboxes.

    Why don't you build a SLIM car stereo, with just the FM radio, a SD slot and an USB slot, a good power amp, all in a standard DIN enclosure.

    I would buy two tomorrow morning, one for my car, and one for my boat.

    -Gian

    This thought had crossed my mind - but, for more than three years, I've had a PhatBox in the car.

    Phatbox: I don't want to add anything any wiring or extra hw in the trunk, just want to be able to pop in a card/usb disk with my music.

    Ah, no extra wiring. I just unplugged and unbolted the OEM CD changer, and fitted the PhatBox in its place.

    What you need is the late, lamented empeg, who built most of what you want seven years ago, were bought out by Rio and all but died under the weight of terrible marketing and lack of focus from the parent company (the core of the original UK company is now part of Sigma Designs). You can still sometimes pick up empeg car players on eBay and there's still an active development community.

    As well as the empeg car player they also built the Rio Receiver (aka Dell Audio Receiver) - arguably the first generation Squeezebox - and Rio Karma portable which is still the best all-round portable music player in many respects.

    Although I didn't purchase one, I recall that when I was looking for a cheap head unit last summer some of the generic brand models at Best Buy had something like this. Here's one:

    eq72521,

    thanks for your link BUT, this cannot read flac files.

    Beside that, I would never trash my dashboard with such cheap plastic... you know, SD has spoiled us SB3 lovers with such a smart design...

    Filter options!

    Would love to be able to filter out artists or albums that only appear x number of times.. optional of course and the artist/album should still show up when searched for directly.

    I posted this request here as well before seeing this thread -
