Default FS: HTPC, Bit-Perfect Computer Transport, Small PC with a great soundcard

$200 shipped to CONUS. For sale is a great, small, very quiet PC that will playback bit-perfect audio up to 96KHz/24bit and stream DD5.1 or DTS. I used it for the following:

* Bit-perfect playback of audio recordings up to 96KHz/24bit (with these drivers)
* Playback of DVDs with DD5.1 or DTS audio output
* Combined Foobar, Convolver, and DRC-FIR to apply digital room correction to audio playback
* Audio measurements with ARTA and RoomEQ Wizard
* Playback of stream video from Hulu, Netflix, Youtube, etc.

Something to keep in mind is that this machine is not powerful enough to playback 1080p video so it would not be ideal to connect to a 1080p TV. This is great for a very inexpensive digital audio solution that no one will guess is a PC. Although I never used it as one, this PC could also be used as a digital crossover for actively crossed speakers if the correct software was used.

Key features:
* Intel Celeron 2.26GHz processor
* 512MB RAM
* Auzen X-Plosion 7.1 DTS Sound Card (replaceable OpAmps, bit-perfect output)
* 40GB Western Digital HD (obviously easily upgradable, but I only stored music on this PC)
* Automatically temperature controlled fan (very quiet)
* Dimensions are 12.25"Wx14.5"Dx3.5"H (including back connectors)

No one interested or is it just priced too high? Make an offer if you feel like the price is unfair, although I might not be very flexible =).

Gah, you're tempting me...

Do you happen to know what the max. preout voltage is from the sound card?

Would you be interested in any trades for other computer/audio stuff?
