It does on my "Computer Audiophile on the Cheap" system. Transferring a file via USB3.0 to the SSD from the External 4 Tb Hard Drive, and playing it from the SSD actually sounds better. I don't know why, but it is certainly worth transferring your play-list over from their safe homes on the External, and kill them off when you are done listening. I don't get into arguments with folks about USB interconnects to the external DAC, but some sell for a few dollars and others cost Hundreds. I think phenomena I am describing has more to do with the quicker throughput of the file, from the SSD to the DAC. Don't know, don't care. It sounds better.
Julian B posted a topic in iTunes and Everything AppleMy iTunes is configured in the way described in Kirk's article: http://www.macworld.com/article/2996002/streaming-media/how-to-set-up-an-itunes-library-on-a-network-attached-server.html My library file is on my mac, the media is on my NAS. My NAS died and I am no longer using it. Fortunately I had my media backed up and have restored it to a different external drive (not a was). How do I tell iTunes to look to that new external drive? If I follow the steps from Kirk's article again, I think it will try to copy from a source that no longer exists. I simply want to tell iTunes that the new location has all the files in the expected folder structure. Any help is appreciated.
soeclectic posted a topic in General ForumI have 5000 Lossless iTunes on an External Drive. I have a Mac Mini. I want a second backup in case this drive is damaged or dies. Uploading Lossless to the cloud is not practical. I want to copy the files from the existing External Drive to a second External Drive. Or, from the External Drive to DVD disks. iTunes used to have that but they got rid of it. My computing skills are not advanced and I will not understand highly technical or complicated responses. Is it possible to revert back to an older version of iTunes that has the copy to disk ability?
Hello all, I think I've read lots of tips here, about how to get the better sound from your SSD/HDD/SD card or other internal/external storage device (FW and Thunderbolt : good, USB : garbage...), but did anyone tried to connect his SSD/HDD to the internal PCI-e or mini PCI-e output of the Mobo ? I read that the reason why Mac Mini's did sound quite good with the Thunderbolt external disks was because it was powered from a mini PCI-e bus (?). I have a mini PCI-e output I don't use on my HDplex PC mobo (I removed the wifi card who was there...). Do you think I could gain something with a mini PCI-e to USB or Sata adapter ? Something like this : Carte Mini PCI Express USB 3.0 - Vente Carte Mini PCI Express USB 3.0 sur conrad.fr | 986875 (french link, sorry) My current stting is an external usb 1 To SSD with a 3.0 short cable to my HDplex PC, but powered with a Teddy Pardo 5v PSU (usb to 3,5mm mini jack). It's already very good to my ears : about the same that internal Sata , but it was too hot to let it there... So, can I expect something better with mini PCI-e + 5v power through external PSU, or is it just bullshit ? Thanks for any advice.
