The Wall-PC no longer lives in my office, as I have found it better suited for other tasks in our new house. I run a network of software Squeezeboxes (home music servers) in my house and the Wall-PC made a perfect wifi Squeezeplayer in our new finished basement. The Wall-PC displays the current album art, title, etc. that’s playing via Pandora or my MP3 library while also having the ability to control the playback and volume in the basement and throughout the house. The Wall-PC is also frequently used to display live sports scores and Fantasy Football scoreboards during a game of 9 ball or cut-throat.
I cut out a small square hole out of the drywall and ran the power and composite audio cables up the wall and across the ceiling to my audio receiver’s inputs. I had to use a wire hanger and a bit of patience to run the cables due to the fiberglass insulation behind the drywall. The power brick is now hidden flush inside the back of the frame. This was possible due to the extremely thin Sony Vaio AC adapter. The Wall-PC is controlled via a ATI Remote Wonder RF remote and a Logitech MX Revolution wireless mouse.
Although it can be a bit buggy at times, I highly recommend the Logitech Squeezebox software and hardware. It is compatible with almost every online music provider as well as your own libraries and allows you to sync your music throughout your entire house. It is also actively updated and continually supported, in fact there was just a major update that overhauled the whole UI on the software player, server and remote which made it even better! I will post additional details on my home wifi music setup in future posts.
