Introduction

Thermaltake’s latest case, the Mozart iP pushes home theater PCs into the realm of true multimedia.  The Mozart iP does this by being the first HTPC case to have an integrated iPod dock.  This will seem like no big deal to anyone out there not wedded to "on the go" music but for a lot of folks, it’s a huge deal.  HTPC functionality coupled with the ability to pipe your iPod's music through your home is a huge step toward a true home media center.  Today, we have Thermaltake’s Mozart iP Case on the review bench for a complete tour.  Shall we?

A new Mozart

The last Mozart case we saw here at the OC Café was the super sized Mozart Tx standing two and a half feet tall.  The new Mozart iP is quite a bit smaller coming in a familiar desktop size.  This desktop separates itself from the pack with an iPod dock just off of center.  And in true Thermaltake fashion, what good in a docked iPod without a remote?
