Computer Audiophile Reviews the MC500 Mini-ITX Case

Mini-ITX Case

I’m always amazed when I think about the variety of customer applications. Our rugged and industrial computer systems hunt hurricanes, power digital signage, and control factory equipment. They even monitor bike racing results.

Our friends at Computer Audiophile recently reviewed our MC500 Compact Mini-ITX case for use as a music server in two different configurations. They highlighted the versatility of the case, the sleek design and the ability to meet the requirements of a Computer Audiophile Pocket Server (CAPS) design.

Here is an excerpt:

“The case is designed for only mini-ITX motherboards. I like that because there is no extra space when it’s not needed. The CAPS v3 Carbon design has extra space but there’s a reason for that space. Logic Supply states a single 2.5″ hard drive can be placed in this case. In my testing I easily placed two 2.5″ drives in the case even though none of these drives are used in the Topanga design. Using two 2.5″ drives could enable readers to customize this server design and fit a nice sized music collection on internal drives. The MC500 is delivered with one fan attached to the chassis. This fan is easily removed to satisfy the CAPS fanless design requirement.”

My fascination with computers began when I got my first real job with a real desk and a Wang computer. The screen was actually black with green characters. As a life-long writer, I was thrilled because I could type faster than I could write. Technology has obviously evolved since then and continues to evolve at a rapid pace. We’ve come a long way since the Wang computer and I am looking forward to being a part of where we're going.
