Yes siree Bob it is Windows On Wheels with them naturally touting the XP Media Center. XBox, home networking, all wireless... your music where you want it when you want it. Home integration folks.
Swingin' to the music is the new Ars Aures Midi Senorial two-way three drive
D'Appolito loudspeaker ($9,400) sounded very effortless and smooth being driven by the Art Audio Quartet monoblock tubed amplifiers.
