I was wondering if anyone had any experience with PCs put together by MusicXPC ( http://www.musicxpc.com ). If so, are they good? well-built? nicely configured? worth it? etc...

Specifically, I'm looking at the C5, which is available from Musician's Friend and other places for about $1,500.

Any thoughts or tales would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Looking at their site, two things:

1) they studiously avoid talking about who supplies their parts.

2) they are as expensive as a comparable Mac.

I do also note they stuck with XP, which is a good move on their part IMO.

I cannot pass any judgement. It looks like good stuff but I'd really have to dig to match up the motherboard with a known board. And they aren't telling you anything interesting about the bios, or the components.

Wish they would be more forthcoming.
