  1. A long time ago, I quit upgrading Audirvana, as subsequent versions sounded worse to me. So I went back to 1.5.10. But time went by, and I never tried any 2 or 3 versions. It wasn't broken, so I never tried to fix it (after experimenting with Audirvana 1.5.12, etc.). I left my software at OSX, ver. 10.8 - Mountain Lion. Still use my substantially stripped down MBP Retina only for listening, RoomPlay voicing and for RoomPlay Reference sessions here. Most visitors think I am I using some HiRez files, but they are standard 16/44.1. I do not want to get better sound at the risk of reliability. This combo has always worked flawlessly for me. However, it's probably way past time that I looked at later - and supposedly better - options. Is there a combo level of OSX & Audirvana that has proven - without a doubt - to deliver even better sound, without software problems? I realize that this is a broad - and dated - question. If any have been down this path successfully, I would greatly appreciate suggestions. Best, Jim Smith
  2. MacBook Pro and SSD

    I have been running my system with a 2009 MBP with a regular internal hard drive (OS and program). Music has been fed through an external hard drive via Firewire 800. It was my assumption that upgrading the internal HD to a SSD was a natural progression. And it has been a great improvement in speed for my general computing tasks. However, I have been disappointed in the sound. My sound has become thinner on the high end with much less life. Just wondering if folks with older MBPs have upgraded to SSDs and if mine is a common experience. (SSD is from OWC designed for the vintage model.) Thanks in advance, Rick
