3 new models are going to extend CHIEFTEC’s HTPC spectrum and add more variety and selection in order to meet the ascending demand for multimedia-based applications. "You name IT – CHIEFTEC got IT!"

CHIETEC’s Hi-Fi series have clearly more to offer than the conventional HTPC chassis. 3 different stack types in combination with brushed and anodized aluminum in black or silver are provided in an exquisite packaging. Operating Timelessly and luxuriously with its already equipped components like a complete hi-fi system.


All relevant interfaces (2 x USB, 1 x IEEE1394, Audio, including a 56 in 1 card reader) are integrated in the front of the chassis behind a dust protecting cover. A distinctive turning-knob allows an easy handling of the device such as the volume and general navigation.

ventilation dosent look too good with those 2 fans slap bang on the back... also i think the massive "Chieftec" logo looks a bit crapulent... i mean if you want to stack it with your Okyno & Nad gear, the chieftec badge isnt something to be bragging about.

I dont think I'll be using these.... theres much better offers elsewhere... and from experience that "volume" dial is going to be a pain to actually get working with a 3rd party soundcard
