The QNAP hompage mentions the possibility to connect one ore more TR-004 bay (https://www.qnap.com/en-us/product/tr-004) via USB3 to the NAS. When done, you may use RAID 5, which imho is more cost/capacity effective (i.e.6 x 3TB equals 15 TB capacity and 1x 3TB parity).
Apart from that, nice review, Chris!
Cheers, Tom

Hi Tom - I tried to see if it’s possible to use the M.2 drives for storage as well, not just cache or app loading. That would be nice. But, I don’t think it’s possible.

This is another interesting development in hard drive technology.  It isn't useful for audio applications, but it's designed to get more IOPS out of these huge capacity (16TB+) drives.  I was a storage systems product manager for many years at IBM so I still follow stuff like this with interest.
