  1. I'm thinking about buying a C.A.P.S. v3 Carbon, and I'd appreciate getting comments from people who are using them, and some advice. I am not a super tech sort of person, so my basic question is, how reliable and easy to use is the Carbon? I don't have the time or skills to do a lot of tinkering with it; and I'm concerned that I'll be on my own if there's a problem. Does Small Green Computer service them? Also, I'm not sure what sort of hard disk setup to use for storing music files; am I correct that a NAS requires using wifi to get the files to the CAPS? Our wifi is not great, so I'd rather use something cabled directly to the CAPS, if it doesn't degrade the sound (my understanding is that a USB connected drive is not good if you're using a USB DAC, and I'm using the Burson Conductor as my DAC). Do you think eSata is the best bet? Finally, if I'm not storing any music files on the SSD, is there a reason why going for a 256 gb drive, rather than the standard 64, makes sense? Thanks for you help! [h=2][/h]
