    I am about to build a smaller HCPC. I was trying to choose what type of pc to build (mini-itx or mini-atx) and looked at the shuttles too.
    Why don't they have SPDIF at the rear? If the box is going to sit by my tv, I don't want to run a cable from the front to the back of my amp. Am I missing something?
    If there are no shuttles / cubes with SPDIF at the back then I can rule them out now.

    The SN45G does - I have one. I use the optical out to my Sony STRDB2000 receiver.

    Check their webitehttp://www.shuttle.com/ for the latest models.

    As do the SN85 and SB61G.

    Take a look at Kustom for a whole range of SFF machines.

    I can also confirm that ... as I have a SN45 ... (two in fact!)

    I got mine from : http://www.overclockers.co.uk

    Cheaper than Kustom (quite a bit cheaper infact)

    Well. I stand corrected. Compared to the price of some of the hcpc cases, I'd rather get a shuttle.

    So now I've just got to find a quiet one.

    Thanks guys. Very helpful as usual.

    If your worried about noise ......

    I dont know about other shuttles , but the SN45 has a smart fan system, which basically means the fan does not step up a gear until the CPU temperature reaches a certain threshold. (52 degrees by default)

    For example I have two shuttles (both SN45)

    One is for DVD and only has a lowly XP1400 in it. It also has a Radeon 9000 (fanless). I have purposly set the fan to 'ultra quiet' , and at that setting it is very quiet indeed. Quieter in fact than my AE300 projector.

    On the second machine I have top of the range stuff , so XP2800 with a radeon 9600pro (fanless version) , and even when the processer is loaded to the full the temp never goes up to more than 54 degrees, so the fan does make a little more noise , but it is still pretty silent ( again I can here my AE300 over it, its that quiet)
