Hi VHS,

 

thanks for you reply.

 

Sorry, I forgot to mention I am looking for new SSD's for my music files.

 

I am using Optane P4800x for the OS already.

Hi Ilona,

 

I am using P4800x 375G for OS and 905P 1.5T for music files storage.

 

Even for music filesstorage, using Optone 905P still benefits....

 

Hope it helps......

I haven't tested this personally but the guys at Antipodes recommend the Samsung 860 or 870.  


Based on their recommendation I went with the 860.  It was after reading some online reviews I opted for the EVO over the PRO model.  
 

It looks to me like the 860 EVO was what Antipodes has installed in my K30 as the boot volume.  Seems that is nice confirmation of use of this drive in music servers.

Digital:  Sonore opticalModule > Uptone EtherRegen > Shunyata Sigma Ethernet > Antipodes K30 > Shunyata Omega USB > Chord Hugo TT2

Foundation: Stillpoints Ultra, Shunyata Denali power conditioner, Shunyata Alpha and Delta power cords, Shunyata Alpha interconnect, Shunyata Sigma Ethernet, MIT Matrix HD60 speaker cables, ASC isothermal tube traps
