It looks like Ricavision is the new MCE set-top maker in town who’s going to start putting some serious heat on the competition with their new line of PLIX Media Center Edition PCs. The company actually has two models out now, but the one that caught our attention is the PLIX EMC 3200HD Media Center PC (retail $2,499). The 3200HD comes in a gorgeous jet-black enclosure, sporting a bright blue LCD, front panel volume control knob, a concealed fontside hot-swappable 2.5-inch 80GB slim hard drive for removable data storage, 3.2Ghz P4, 200GB of internal storage, and is equipped with a dual tuner NTSC and ATSC (over-the-air HD) card capable of 1080i resolution. But if over-the-air HD is not your thing, the slightly less powerful $1,999 EMC 3000 is steal for what it comes packaged with.

Feature Highlights:

  • Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005
  • 1GB 400MHz DDR (512MB*2)
  • 3.5″ 200GB ultra SATA100 7200rpm
  • 2.5″ 80GB swappable hard drive for removable data storage
  • ATI RADEON X300 256MB DDR SDRAM 128bit DVI/VGA/TV PCI Express x16, 1080i High Definition Output supported
  • ATSC HDTV w/ Windows Broadcast Driver Architecture Driver 2 NTSC Tuners with FM and S-Video IN
  • Dual mode DVD-RW
  • Integrated 7-in-1 memory card reader

Side Note: If you want to build your own MCE set-top, Ricavision has recently announced the SilverLake barebones system.
