The item of interest in this picture is the horizontal grey box in the middle of the hi-fi cabinet. It's a diskless MP3 jukebox, running NetBSD/shark. The Shark is completely silent due to having neither disk drives (it NFS mounts its file-systems, including '/') nor fans (as it is based on the StrongARM processor, it generates negligable heat). The machine uses one of the S-video inputs on the TV for display purposes, and an infrared keyboard/mouse for input purposes. The Shark's audio output is of sufficiently high quality that it takes a discerning ear to tell the difference between the original CD and MP3 recording on this setup.
