All of our digital audio workstations come standard with a 2-year warranty, and are designed with the highest quality parts available so that they are built to last, as well as operate completely silently.
Every single item in our Digital Audio Workstations is geared to produce a completely silent work environment for audio recording and mixing. This silent environment is imperative when it comes to studio recording with an absolutely dry signal, for cleaner mixes. Getting the cleanest recording possible requires the added attention to silence that we bring to the picture.

Fanless Video Cards We choose the quietest video cards available in the market. Every video card choice is silently cooled either with the manufacturer's fanless video heatsink, fitted with a custom silent video card cooler, or has an extremely quiet stock cooler. As well as being absolutely silent every video card offers support for at least two monitors simultaneously, many with options for more.
Silent Hard Drives Every recording computer we sell comes defaulted with the most reliable silent Solid State Drive options available. Solid-state drives (SSDs) have no moving parts so they make no noise, have blazing fast read times, and are more reliable than standard mechanical hard drives. If you need more storage space in your recording PC than an SSD offers, we recommend a secondary data storage drive; our Western Digital Red series drives are extremely reliable, affordable, near silent, and have options for up to 8TB per drive!
