Agree. I have a HTPC from the same company with a very similar case.
It says 6 cm height, but you are probably questioning if that's the internal or external dimension?
HFX - HFX mini storage

Would be awesome if it could fit.

Well... Something of the sort could be done but if we are to avoid having to add a standby supply it'd have to be connected to the primary side. Which means: properly insulated wiring and switch, and potential difficulty explaining to people that the pushbutton connection is dangerous live. I think we have to mull that one over.

Pretty critical I'd say

What is the purpose of the mystical connector that is not mentioned anywhere? (Is this where we hack into the Matrix or something...)

If I buy some soft start modules and go that route, what do i do to bypass the soft start section (since the SMPS already has one) and just use it for it's switching capability. Maybe I'm wrong but it seems that adding unnecessary elements into the signal path, would subtract the advantages of using high end power cables, connectors etc.

Pretty much. It's used to program the microcontroller.

There's nothing left to bypass since the relay already does so.

Ahhh I see. So after the soft start absorbs the energy surge, a relay kicks in and completely bypasses everything as if it's a direct connection to the mains? Excuse my ignorance, this is all new to me

1 final question and I will shut up (for now ) If I want to connect 2 SMPS600's to a single soft start module, would I connect 1 to the F5-F6 output and 1 to the F7-F8?

Oh, we are likely to see those who will modify the software for "improved sonic performance" you see. We see that over on the Squeezebox Touch forum, where wild claims are made for dramatic improvemens by adjusting the thread priority in the firmware .... yeah right.
