With the explosion of the home theatre market in the past decade or so, it was inevitable that the personal computer would enter the fray at some point. After all, a well-designed PC with the proper hardware can do the work of a myriad of home theatre components, and do it as well or better than even the most high-end equipment. So, where do you find one of these magic boxes that will satisfy all of your home entertainment desires? If you're like a lot of PC enthusiasts, you build it yourself. One of the first decisions anyone contemplating a project like this will have to make will be to choose a chassis to put all the goodies into. While some folks would be content with having a big, beige computer case sitting in the living room, a significant segment of this group wants something more sleek and stylish. Some of the small form factor cases on the market would seem to be a good choice here, but most of these offer limited flexibility with respect to motherboard, power supply, graphics and drive choices.
Antec has a new product out to fill this niche. The Fusion Remote Max is the latest offering in the Veris line of media components and lets the HTPC enthusiast choose components based on utility rather than size. It also has some nice features that may make this the chassis of choice for your next HTPC build. Follow along as we take a closer look at the Max.
