Award-winning Home Theater PC manufacturer STEIGER DYNAMICS™ will launch its all-new MAVEN™ lineup at the Consumer Electronics Show 2014 in Las Vegas on Jan. 7 at a starting price of $999.
MAVEN, the most powerful custom-built HTPC in its segment, is setting a new standard for the modern living room. Due to its sleek design, ultra-silent operation, and easy integration with other home theater components, the systems blend perfectly into any existing setup. Combined with a large-screen Full HD or 4K TV, the MAVEN replaces numerous devices like Blu-ray players, DVRs, Desktop PCs and gaming consoles.
“I am extremely proud to introduce the all new MAVEN Home Theater PC line-up to the world,” said STEIGER DYNAMICS CEO Martin Gossner. “Our major focus was to create a living room computer that is both affordable and powerful while maintaining the astonishing aesthetics and functionality of our top-of-the-line LEET system.”
MAVEN puts the new generation of consoles to shame by providing the fastest and most detailed gaming graphics available today. Depending on the configuration, latest games can be played in native 4K or Full HD (both in 2D and 3D) with ultra-smooth 60+ frames per second from the comfort of the couch.
Newest generation Intel and AMD processors combined with SSD system drives and high-speed DDR3 memory give the MAVEN the performance of highest-end desktop PCs.
Up to 12 TB of WD storage provide the capacity for 1,000 Full HD Blu-ray movies, 3 million MP3s, or 3,000 hours of HD TV recording. The integrated home server functionality allows the streaming of the entire media library to mobile devices. All components are designed for continuous operation and are carefully selected based on durability, performance, and quietness.
With a recommended TV size of 42” and above, the MAVEN delivers a full-fledged Microsoft® Windows 8 experience, providing Blu-ray playback in Dolby TrueHD, lossless HD Audio, and all online streaming services like Netflix, Hulu and Spotify. The MAVEN is compatible with any video and audio file format (mts, mkv, avi, mp4, mp3, acc, flac, ogg etc.).
Users also have a freedom of choosing their own type of wireless or wired control such as a smartphone, tablet, touchpad, mouse and keyboard or Xbox® controllers.

MAVEN is available in three lines. The Pure line starts at $999 and caters to the media center, audio and video enthusiasts. The Core line is tailored to the hardcore gamer, while the Reference line delivers highest processing and graphics power, featuring Intel 6-Core CPUs.
