Thanks to the compact nature of the Audio Relay itself, the packaging is extremely compact. It's about the same size as the packaging on an average-sized cloth mouse mat. The AR is so easy to setup that you could get away with just looking at the diagram on the box.

As well as the Audio Relay itself we have a USB power cable and plug, a wireless antenna and some good quality phono cables to connect the AR to whatever audio option you wish to use.

Piano black is the order of the day, guaranteed to pick up all the dust and fingerprints it can find. On top is just a power button, which glows blue when on. Round the back is where the action happens. From left to right are the phono ports for the audio output, an Optical out, the USB power input, a USB port for firmware upgrading, Ethernet (needed for initial setup), and the WPS button and antenna port for the wireless if you choose to utilise that.

Pretty sure the article did not at any point say that this was a first, for neither "non-Mac" or Mac users. So.... What?

No, but the Airport express is a superb bit of kit already and I HATE Apple. Plugs it just plugs in the mains too, its no bigger than a plug

I'm posting this from my Apple laptop right now, so I don't really understand where you're coming from. It's all down to personal preference, and I prefer OSX for day to day use.

And, you can replace hard drives and RAM without voiding any warranty, as long as you don't mess anything else up when you do it.
