  1. Hi Ben, If you did the edge breaks, that's a lot of additional work. Do you have a background in machining?
  2. Very interested to hear it too! I've been following his releases ever since he recorded the Rachmaninov concerti here in Dallas.
  3. (DSD) Tower EMI 4 SACD: - Brahms 2, Bartók 2 (Maazel/Paris) - Grieg, Schumann (Matačić/Monte Carlo) - Dvořák (Kleiber/Bavaria), Prokofiev 5 (Maazel/London) - Beethoven 3, Mozart 22 (Muti/Philharmonia)
  4. Thanks to @mikicasellas for confirming he is using an Optane M10 64GB boot drive in M2_2 (CPU controlled) on the ROG Maximus XIII Hero.
  5. Does anyone have experience with an M.2 Optane boot drive on Z590?
  6. Second that. There are many friendly, helpful people in this community, but Rob is a standout :)
  7. Thanks Doc ;) Those are fast, reliable drives (see my link above), but the community has pretty well panned them for adverse impact on SQ.
  8. I wasn't sure what you guys meant until I found the thread: NVMe SSD designed for audiophiles - Disk Storage / Music Library Storage - Audiophile Style
  9. Thanks for the response. The WD seems to have good feeback from gamers, except there are the LEDs. Unfortunately the Sabrent Rocket performance didn't seem to stand up, and there are some concerning allegations about responses from customer service on Amazon. There is always the option of falling back to Intel 660P/670P for the time being, and still benefitting from the PCIe lanes to CPU.
  10. Has anyone built with Intel Z590 and an NVMe 4 SSD? On the ASUS board I like, Optane needs a PCH slot, but 2 of the 4 NVMe slots use the 11th gen CPU. I'm planning another build and was thinking of the storage. 8 Best PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSDs - Buying Guide (2021) - ThunderboltLaptop
  11. Anyone get this and able to comment on SQ? CDJapan : Beethoven: The "Middle Period" String Quartets (No. 7-9 "Razumovsky No. 1-3", No. 10 "Harp", No. 11 "Serioso") <Tower Records exclusive> Alban Berg Quartett SACD
