Hey, I know, let’s put standard PC components inside a cool looking case and sell it for 10 times what it’s worth!

What a ripoff, they must be hoping there’s a lot of morons with too much money out there.

I used to think that more or less, but, yeah, Ronnie is right, the people who are buying these are using them for touring rigs. Big, national touring rigs, where you have two of everything in your rack. It’s obviously easier to transport around than a computer and probably more reliable too.


I use a Receptor in performance situations that I used to use my laptop for. I push the power button and 2 minutes later I have a software environment of 16 different VST's with a multitude of complex routings and effects ready to go. They are expensive compared to what you can spend on a similar computer, but most of the price reflects the architecture of the operating system and self contained nature of the system.
