Thanks mprassel and yes, I love Sonos as well. Sound is great and as everything is wireless you don't have any ugly wires and you can move the speakers almost whereever you want (even outside to have some nice music outside while you are chilling in the garden).

The skin is Eminence by Jurialmunkey (with a custom wallpaper). You can find the skin here:

Very nice and very simple. Curious to know how the u-paq handles the heat being on top of the 360?

You are right, the heat coming from the xbox is a problem. Honestly the xbox is not really in use at the moment as I have no time for gaming and my kids are still too young... probabaly need to move the xbox to another place or have to buy a new games console once my kids are old enough Wink

It is a very clean and roomy setup but doesn't the xbox 360 get kind of hot and doesn't the heat affect the stuff you have stacked on top of it?

Hi jayzirl, unfortunately, the company from which I bought the u-paq seems to be not existing anymore. However, there are many vendors for fanless PCs. My next HTPC likely will be an Intel NUC. Maybe something lie this:

Hello futuro

Please can you tell me about your setup. I see that you are using SONOS speakers, is one of them hard wired to your PC?

What audio player are you using, is it PAPlayer, SONOS addon or anb external player?

thank you

Richard
