A local computer shop (Central Computers) sells custom, rack-mount PCs designed for audio use: super quiet case and cooling, SSD's, PCI, etc. They can offer it with or without Windoze; buy it bare bones and run Linux on it.
What in the world would a manufacturer be necessary for? What this calls for is a reseller or system integrator; it's just building a PC out of commodity parts.
In fact, anyone can do it. This is Linux-land, and components are cheap and easily available-- DIY and build yer own!
And once you have done that and worked out the bugs, print up some spiffy labels, put up a web page and Amazon/Google/Yahoo/whatever store, and you now have a side business selling audio PCs to linux users (or Windoze users, if you want to get into that end of it).
