Asus today released its new M4A78-HTPC Series motherboards that are developed specifically for use in Home Theatre Personal Computers (HTPCs). According to a press release, the M4A78-HTPC Series motherboards are based on the AMD 780G chipset, which integrates HDMI/DVI support to display HD videos. The board also incorporates ASUS Absolute Pitch Hi-Fi and DTS Surround Sensation UltraPC Technology, for sound enhancement.

Furthermore, M4A78-HTPC Series motherboards come with a media center dubbed Home Theatre Gate and a low-noise, energy efficient Tranquil Mode that offer users greater convenience and a more conducive music environment respectively.

The M4A78-HTPC Series are the first motherboards to be equipped with the Asus Absolute Pitch Hi-Fi technology which dedicates an independent audio power connector solely to audio components. Additionally, the gold-plated RCA stereo audio connectors are compatible with amplifiers without requiring additional connectors -- making it simple to link PCs to home theatre equipment. Furthermore, the M4A78-HTPC supports DTS Surround Sensation UltraPC Technology for true high-definition home theatre entertainment.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
