The 3-Shelf Digital Jukebox

We recently posted about what to do with an "aged" (aka outdated) 1st generation Apple TV, mentioning a whole world of uses opens up once you hack it. Although the setup above from Swedish A/V enthusiast site, Minhembio, utilizes a Mac Mini, this compact digital jukebox could work equally well with either Apple TV or Mini...

That's a lot of tech squeezed into a small space, all fitting snugly in and on top of two (there's a very narrow third middle shelf we missed on first glance) shelf bookshelf in fact: a 2010 Mac Mini, small Dell 1704 17" LCD display, Pro-ject USB Box, Logitech Squeezebox Touch to control Web-radio, a Marantz KI Pearl Lite, and a newly upgraded pair of Argon1 speakers.

Being the optimizers we are, we think this already cool setup could be improved with a few adjustments/additions to optimize utility and reduce the amount of visible tech:
