Introduction

To be honest, a couple of years ago I thought that the HTPC would be a short-lived fad but I was very wrong. The popularity of adding a PC to a home entertainment center steadily grows as time goes on. I've used a PC for music listening since the late 90s and while it's not quite an audiophile system, it isn't that far from it. I should have realized how practical the jump from audio to video was, but I didn't.

Actually, I even have a separate PC dedicated to TV watching and program recording. It isn't what you'd call an HTPC, as I have this PC in the bedroom. I listen to music at my workstation and my HDTV is in yet another room. Someday the three may come together, but not yet.

I've had a couple of HTPC cases, though both were nearly two years ago. One was a desktop type case, with no special features for HTPC use. The second was a true HTPC case with remote, display, etc, but a midtower. Probably the only HTPC feature that has ever been used was the remote, mainly used for turning the PC on and off.

Today I will be looking at a sharp looking new desktop HTPC case by nMediaPC. It accommodates a standard ATX motherboard and a full sized power suppy, with pricing in the economy range of HTPC cases (under $100). It definitely does not look like a PC case, which is the trend in the HTPC case arena. Read on to find out about the nMediaPC HTPC-6000B!
