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
