Soldam's Altium FC500 studio for the audio pros


Unless you're an Engadget intern or working in the media arts, chances are that your rig doesn't offer 3x displays. Well check the build-to-order Altium FC500 studio setup from Soldam's WINDy DAW series of digital audio workstations. The kit starts with a 2.93GHz X6800 Core 2 Extreme processor, up to 4GB (1GB x 4) PCS-5300 DD2 SDRAM, up to 4x 7200rpm SATA disks (RAID 0+1) with eSATA expansion, a ±R DL DVD super multi-drive, gigabit Ethernet, 6x USB 2.0, 4x Firewire, and of course a couple of NVIDIA Quadro NVS440 graphics cards with 256MB of GDDR3 memory from which to hang your trio of 19-inch displays... with room for a fourth. And because this is targeted at audio pros, it comes flauntin' a high-end DSP from Universal Audio: the UAD-1 PCI card. It all comes packed in an Altium case said to efficiently keep the rig cool while keeping the noise down. Sound good? Now the price -- at ¥1,375,500 (about $11,373) maybe you'd like to take your chances and roll your own?
