When suspending mechanism from the bottom, using two spacers like this worked better than direct mount:

Tried Best Buy online, unfortunately they no longer carry this model.
I'll probably risk some low end units on eBay and see what I can come up with.

I found one I can buy for about $80 which is far more than I want to spend. Yeah I'm cheap..

Now, the clock. I tried Tent clock with a dedicated PS, but it didn't worked well. My findings has been quite similar what Romy says on his site:

Beside all that, there are few components that I replaced on original board (replacing too many will kill the sonics).

I basicaly removed the main filter cap and replaced all other electrolytics tied directly to rails with BG N caps and also removed their SMD bypasses. One other cap was replaced to ERO 1830, 0.1uF and that's basically all. Okapi will post PDF when it's ready.

One other thing, the output resistors are quite important, I got the best results with Caddock MK132 75R to ground and VishayS102 60R (or similar value) in series.

I'm afraid the I2S output is not available. Here's the underside of PCB.

what about pins 33-36 on the LC78620? I'm looking at the LC78620E datasheet, as I cannot make the exact number out from your photo. Looks to be i2s output.

Also, is the "B" designation important in the model?

The first post doesn't mention the B, but the image of Peter's storage facility shows all B models. I'd like to know as well.
