PCAlchemy HTPC Store Closes For Good

PCAlchemy has been one of the more popular, HTPC-focused online stores and a great resource for anyone building their own Home Theater PC.

I’ve purchased a HTPC case, tuners and software from them in the past and always had good service from them.  Unfortunately recent financial difficulties have forced them to shut down permanently.  Over the past week or so I’ve heard rumblings of the PCAlchemy store not keeping products in stock etc (read this thread at MissingRemote for an example of that) and today, they posted this notice announcing the closure:


It could be a rough year for many companies – especially those that specialize in a very specialized niche like this.
