GMC AVC-S7 Case

On First Page2. The Case


GMC is a Korean based company who focus almost entirely on the design and production of HTPC cases. We had a look at several of their products in the past, each of them designed with a different purpose in mind. Today we will take a look at their latest HTPC case, the AVC-S7. The AVC-S7 is an elegant but very short case which is designed to match DVD players and other home theater equipment. Let us see if such a short case can be practical for housing modern home theater systems.

Packaging and Bundle

The cardboard box of the AVC-S7 is so narrow that someone could mistake it for a DVD player. The case is held in the middle of the box between two Styrofoam pieces and wrapped in a nylon bag. While this kind of packaging will not withstand much abuse, it should offer sufficient protection during shipping.

The AVC-S7 comes with a relatively rich bundle. Besides the needed screws and standoffs, you will also find a well written manual, an AC power cable, a high performance copper low-profile cooler, the iMon remote controller and its software CD.
