Lian Li Thin Mini ITX case with the IPhone that is used as remote control for JRivers Media Center on Win8.
Rear view. Pretty sparse with just USB3 for music except for on board audio outs.
Inside shot. SSD 120gig drive for OS and programs on the left and a wireless with Bluetooth on the right.
CPU is an Intel I3 3225 with a low profile heat sink. Music is stored on a 1 TB laptop drive.
USB feeds a SOTM dx-usb-hd. It can be run from an external battery source or usb power. If you are using USB power it filters it.

Like a laptop the PC is powered by a power brick and runs cool and silent. It has 8 Gig of DDR3 1600 memory. JRivers has a feature where the song is loaded from the hard drive to the memory before it is played. Output to the SOTM ASIO 2.2. Win8 needs a driver for the converter. I don't think one is required for MAC. Mother board is Intel DQ77KB.
