True, though a kit for it could work... a nice curvy case in the same sort of plastic as the squeezebox, perhaps designed with particular available amp/speaker parts in mind - then you can just get the parts and a regular squeezebox, and slot the bits together - I don't think it's worth it as a custom project as it wouldn't quite look the part.

Again, there's probably not even enough demand for that - but it'd still be cool
