Well that's more up to the builder. You can make decent puters with no fan now. There are always other ways now with computers - like putting the tower in the next room and running the firwire through a hole in the wall. So you have the breakout box in the listening room for patching but the powerful PC (which will need fans) in the next room. You can use bluetooth based mice and keyboards to get the tower really far away now.

Who needs that extra complexity?

It's complex in the beginning but more intuitive and easier in the end. I can adjust pretty much everything from the listening location with a controller. Not for everyone but well if accuracy is the goal then...

And really I don't see much of a distinction with most "hardware". Most of the time this hardware is nothing more than a small computer with software that's a pain to update.

The goal is to set it up once and then forget about it.

Eh I'll explain it to the best of my ability another time. Was just giving an alternative to the hardware I see recommended over and over. I still don't see any distinction - there is no requirement to tinker with settings because you are using a PC instead of proprietary hardware.

You don't see any distinction because you don't see the learning curve and complexity involved in using a PC vs. a dedicated piece of hardware.

I've looked into what you suggest and it gets very compex - a steep learning curve. Thats fine if thats what you want to do, but its not for everyone.

Well I plan on helping out with that. Doing some of the legwork for you.

Some of my ideas are much easier than they used to be. My midi controller for instance does not require knowledge of MIDI language to program. You basically point and click and the control is assigned to the parameter.

Why was the release of the Emotiva UMC-1 delayed by years? Is it because they employ only incompetent loosers? Get real.
