Firewire vs NAS


francois

Recommended Posts

Hello everybody,

 

I have optimized osx for audio (disable unnecessary service like Spotlight, no atime, no network etc) and found some nice improvements.

 

I use usb for connecting to the DAC, therefore I use firewire for storage

 

Question: is it better to reactivate network and use a NAS ?

 

(Assuming that using another path and HW controller on the motherboard may modify "os jittery")

 

Thank You

François

Thank you to bzr, really good FAQ ;)

 

I have build a NAS to compare with firewire local Mac Book Pro storage

 

Findings are: NAS is better (after 10 days testings)

More detailled and relaxing sounds

 

NAS is:

windows xp underpowered to 600MHZ - 1.1V vs 1700MHZ - 1.3V

very important to avoid ground loops, RJ45 cross cable is U/UTP : Unshielded

 

cheers

Francois
