The case looks very nice.

Is it going to be built with super-quiet components suitable for usage in a lounge? - that is an essential feature for me.

Something that annoys me about my hardware is that I do not currently have a standby LED, the main power LED just flashes when in standby mode so I have disconnected it.

It would be real nice to have a red LED like most other HiFi components when the system is on standby, and then maybe a blue LED when the system is actually ON. I have worked out a way of doing this using the +5VSB power and a dual color LED but have just never got around to wiring it up yet.

Call me old fashioned, but I've never understood the trend towards having a button lightup with you turn a system off. When I shut down my components, I want them dark. having a "standby" light is just a waste to me. Heck, I've even seen some sytems that the light doesn't change color when you power it on, it goes off, completely counter-intuitive!

just my 2cents!

Cicero ... loving xLobby, both versions ... now just to get all the new toys ...

To each his own, I love that on my JVC D-ILA I can make the blue power button go dark when it is getting a signal. I really don't want to see a bank of lights when watching my theater. The darker when on, the better...
