These are some very unsatisfactory views of my first (undoubtedly not last) mini-ITX system currently under construction. The mainboard is a VIA EPIA 800 ($99 at Fry's). The primary purpose of this system is sound recording; There's an M-Audio Delta 66 that mounts in the PCI slot, barely visible on the right in the rear view. I bought the Omni-Studio package; the box with all the knobs seen above the system in the rear view is the Omni-IO mic preamp and mixer. The Delta 66 was selected for its excellent sound and good Linux support (under ALSA).
