AOpen is jumping into the Media Center/Home Theater PC with their new ePCs series of systems that look like home theater receivers:
The ePCs are based on digital entertainment platforms which can fit ideally in different users environments," said Bernie Tsai, president of AOpen. "AOpen Media Center Server 400/410 is an ideal choice for the main living room, while AOpen XC REC6 is a model for the sitting room," Tsai elaborated. The various models of ePCs form AOpen's digital home entertainment solutions and are used in different scenarios. For example, the AOpen Media Center Server 400/410 is designed to look like your more traditional amplifier. You can store up to seven hard drives in this case as well as multiple TV tuners.
