C Series – Small form factor desktop

The C Series was designed to strike the perfect balance between power and space. It allows you to free up studio space without compromising performance. This means that you can have a powerful machine that takes up very little real estate. Another key feature of the C series is its “Ultra Quiet” performance. Reduced fan noise is achieved by utilizing a “heat pipe” technology which allows the fans to be used only on the power supply and CPU. Also, while most industry leading video cards have fans, the on-board video adapter is sufficient to operate two monitors for audio applications.

Intel Core i7 Processor

Maximum everything, energy-efficient performance & multimedia power.

The MusicXPC Professional C20x ships with an Intel Core i7 processor. Based on the revolutionary Intel® Core™ microarchitecture, the breakthrough Intel® Core™i7 processor family is designed to provide powerful energy-efficient performance so you can do more at once without slowing down.

You won't have to slow down for virus scan, multiple computing intensive programs, or multimedia downloads — these desktop processors are up to 40% faster with improved energy-efficiency.


Ultra High-Speed Ram

All-round protection provides the best quality, reliability, and durability

RAM is very important to the smooth and efficient operation of any music production computer and In the case of a the MusicXPC Professional C20x, we use the high-tier ram manufacturer Kingston-HYPERX. The C20x uses DDR3-1600 RAM to ensure that your computer production experience leaves you with nothing to worry about.


Solid State Drive

Always be in high acceleration

The 840 EVO is significantly faster than a standard HDD, providing more rapid sequential and random read and write times for every task. Samsung's new 3-bit MLC NAND flash memory stores data more efficiently, increasing both speed and reliability. Whether it's a heavy workload like   audio or  video file editing or a simple task like a virus scan, the 840 runs every job smoothly and quickly. Multitasking is a simple job for this SSD, which can operate several tasks simultaneously nearly three times faster than an HDD.



High Capacity Storage

Experience a brand new, faster performance

The MusicXPC Professional C20x is superfast. It breezes through the most demanding audio tasks you can throw at it. Part of the secret  formula are the two lightning-fast SATA 6Gb/s 7200 RPM hard drives. With 64MB cache, these drives are perfect for playing back scores and scores of linear audio tracks. An added bonus is the fact that these drives run quiet as a whisper and provide a robust enclave for your precious audio performances and files.




The plethora of ports found on the MusicXPC Professional C20x set it apart because of the mix of the latest and the legacy. The ports allow you to connect with virtually any kind of physical device that is found in a music studio and then some. The ports are conveniently arrayed on the front and on the back providing you with options for handling any connection that may confront you. Here is an overview of the ports found on the  MusicXPC  Professional C20X: FireWire, USB 3.0 GigaBit LAN



Compitable with 1000+ of devices

Inside the MusicXPC Professional C20x there is space for one 5.25" device, one 2.5"drive and one 3.5" device. Each Professional C20x comes with a DVD-RW optical drive, 1 lightning-fast SATA 6Gb/s solid-state drive and 2 SATA 6Gb/s 7200 RPM 64MB cache Hard Drives housed in a detachable sub-chassis so the machine is already loaded right out of the box.

There is more than two TeraBytes of storage in this little screamer. Never before has so much music production power been packed into such a small, super quiet space. We still genuinely marvel at the power of the MusicXPC.



FireWire 800 & 400

Fastest Connector for External Drives

FireWire 800 (1394b) interface, which provides up to twice the data transfer speeds and bandwidth of FireWire 400 (1394a), both critical attributes when working with multimedia applications. Don't settle for a slower connection and less than maximum performance. features the fastest PCI Express to FireWire 800 controller available, three full-bandwidth, powered 9-pin FireWire 800 ports, this card can easily satisfy the high-bandwidth demands of video and pro audio applications. This card also powers bus-powered external drives and audio interfaces, so there is no need to connect an external power brick to them. Offering plug and play simplicity, this card works in any PCI Express (PCIe) slot, supports all FireWire 800 and FireWire 400(2)peripherals, and features hot-pluggable and hot-swappable device connection with automatic device configuration.

FireWire 400 is still the fastest interface found on many peripherals (so much faster than USB 2.0). From external hard drives, DV camcorders, external Blu-ray burners, and audio interfaces to digital cameras and scanners, thousands of devices can connect to computers via FireWire.



Advanced Cooling System

Keep cool as you're working on your hottest tracks

The world has seen a stunning increase in CPU and bus speeds over the last few years. The increase in speed, and the need to pack even more into even smaller spaces, has led to an equally dramatic increase in the amount of heat generated by components inside the computers. Some computer manufacturers have done the only thing they can - increase the size of the heatsinks and the number and power of fans located inside the computer chassis. The big problem with this for an audio professional is the high level of noise that these fans can generate. Some computers are just far too noisy to be a welcomed part of a studio environment. Some computers cannot be placed inside a control room without special, expensive noise reducing enclosures. MusicXPC doesn't have that problem. It uses a patented heat-pipe technology that traps CPU heat and through passive convection, passes that heat to conductors in the rear, where a single, small fan pushes the hot air to the outside.


Solid Steel Chassis

Strong, Light, Rigid, Robust and Gorgeous

Engineered for strength, expansion and compactness which is the solid foundation each MusicXPC is built upon.
