This looks fantastic! The fact that it’s software can be updated to improve it in the future is very tasty. I hope you get a a review model soon, I’d love to hear your thoughts!

This thing looks NASTY!  The remote alone is worth the price of admission.  I’m a Tivoli guy, but if I was in the market, I’d give this thing a serious look.

the remote detaches from the base, and displays the content of your ipod. and apparently the sound quality is top-notch. see the crave article.

Saw and heard it yesterday at MacWorld: I’m a total convert.  It was the most intersting iPod speaker system there.
