Second Life of AIWA NSX-430


Recently I found a good example of DIY HTPC. The 9 yeas old music center AIWA NSX-430 was used as a base. All its functions were saved except cassette player (in any case it’s not so important in our digital century). For HTPC are used following parts:

  • Motherboard: Shuttle FN85 with NVIDIA nForce3 Pro 150
  • CPU: AMD Athlon 64 3200+ with ZALMAN CNPS7700-AlCu
  • RAM: 2×512 Kingston DDR-533
  • Video: nVidia GeForce 6600 GT AGP
  • HDD: Samsung SATA II HD350HJ – 350GB
  • Optical drive: Sony NEC Optiarc AD-7170S SATA
  • PSU: Shuttle SB75G2, 220 W

Using AUX input sound comes from HTPC to music center speakers. Moreover, it’s possible to use built-in NSX-430 equalizer and DSP.

The article is on Russian. But there is a lot of photos which cover all stages of assembly. As result the old music center can be used as HTPC as well.
