    When I was looking to buy my first SLIMP3 I almost
    settled for an AudioTron simply becuase it was in a
    standard audio component enclosure. I eventually got
    a SLIMP3 after learning more about this community.
    Eventually, I came to like the small size of the
    device. Instead of being mixed in with my stereo
    equipment it sits on top of my television.

    That said, if I had a choice today I would probably
    opt for the component sized one as you described if
    the price were the same. This would mainly be for the
    hard buttons. That is probably the thing I dislike
    about the SLIMP3/Squeezebox the most is that you have
    to do everything via the remote or the computer.

    Now factoring in price, I'm not sure how much more I'd
    pay for something with hard buttons. I'd pay maybe
    $50 more but probably not $100. I think the devices
    are already priced kind of at the upper end of the scale.

    Sorry about the delay on this, Jason. We were taken surprise a bit by
    the popularity of the upgrade orders.

    As of today we're a week behind in shipping domestic orders and expect
    to be caught up on Wednesday or Thursday of this week.

    Thanks for your patience,
