    Thumbs up Time for Boom #2 for me :)

    Well the bedroom Boom is so totally cool that the kitchen system is being removed in favour of Boom #2. Quick note to the Slim / Logitech team to say well done, great product!

    Yeah, it's only a matter of time for me too. I have 4 SB3's and a Boom and one of the SB3's is just itching to become a Boom (and move somewhere else more appropriate).

    Sadly the SB3 is now about to become a dumb display on my main system, but I had actually been considering buying an SB3 just for that!

    I started thinking the same thing a few days ago.

    My wife surprised me with a Boom for Christmas. It works great in the bedroom for music and alarms, and I've also taken out to the back porch on a couple of afternoons.

    But it sounds so good, and the form factor is so appropriate, for kitchen use, that I'm thinking of pulling out the SB3/T-Amp/Fair-to-middlin' speakers I currently use in the kitchen.

    Love the Boom.
    Really, it was like that when I got here.

    I had a really rather good kitchen system and have sold the speakers alone for twice the price of the Boom, which is kinda nice. The sound has suffered, but it's so hard to listen critically when you're frying onions, I find.

    I wonder how many I'll get when I move to a bigger house...

    Yeah, I'm thinking of moving the SB3 + Edirol MA15D's I currently use in the bedroom (as an alarm clock) to the study, and buying a Boom for the bedroom.
    I figure the Edirol speakers will do nicely hooked up to the PC I'm about to buy (which is obviously going in the study), and it won't hurt to have a SB3 in there, too.
    Plus, I can move the (future) Boom out to the verandah rather easily when I have guests over, too.
    But I'm so torn on which system will get the sub? Keep it in the bedroom? Or move it to the study? Or buy another sub for the Boom later? Decisions, decisions...

    That's the main problem with the Boom!

    It's hard to get one without wanting another.

    I already had two SB3s and got the Boom for my home office. Now I want one for the kitchen, too.

    Cool Just bought Boom 2

    Cannot wait for it to be delivered.

    Wish I could get the ratsa fratsin mounting baracket in the Netherlands, though. It is so annoying not being able to put my Booms where I want them.

    Are they not shipping the brackets internationally? Seems silly.

    They are shipping internationally to select countries. Unfortunately, their order site has not been updated so the Ship To country drop down box is not 100% accurate.
    You may want to email the orders dept. and ask about your region.
