Conclusion: The type of case used for a media centre in the living room is really of personal taste. Some people prefer a ?classy? look that the Minuet II provides, where as some prefer the ?futuristic? look that comes with the Aria. Personally we preferred the Minuet II?s look as to us it looked less like a PC and more like a standard house hold appliance like a DVD player, and with its reflective piano black finish it looked fantastic in our living room.
