  1. Looks like you have purchased the drive already. But if not, for pennies more, you can get the T7 version, which i nearly twice as fast. https://seekingtech.com/samsung-portable-ssd-t5-vs-samsung-portable-ssd-t7-touch/ https://www.amazon.ca/stores/page/15C7664A-B741-4AAA-AD93-01B7B0E02D50?store_ref=SB_A04525472KG6QUX59V7RP&aaxitk=Yj.107SlCfaEG6ZVVCHuug&hsa_cr_id=5830030690601&lp_asins=B082YHBYNJ,B0874XN4D8,B0874YDQ9K&lp_mat_key=samsung portable ssd&lp_query=Samsung T7 portable SSD&lp_slot=desktop-hsa-3psl&ref_=sbx_be_s_3psl_mbd
  2. See the meaning of 'seduction' in the criminal law: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seduction_(crime)
  3. Thanks. I just realized that. Plus the date on the photo helps a bit. In 1938, a 23-year-old Frank Sinatra was arrested in Bergen County, N.J. on charges of seduction and adultery. According to the FBI reports, "On the second and ninth days of November 1938 at the Borough of Lodi" and "under the promise of marriage" Sinatra "did then and there have sexual intercourse with the said complainant, who was then and there a single female of good repute." This, the charge stated, was "contrary and in violation of the revised statute of 1937." The charges were later dismissed when it was determined that the woman involved was married.
  4. Took me a while to recognize Joplin and Morrison. The others were easier (no I didn't peek at the names -- Cobain, Hendrix, Elvis, LOL!), However, I do not recognize the one on the top left -- who is that?
  5. My experience was with a Linux guest. I don't have any Windows guests. Nonetheless, I am glad to hear it will work with a Windows guest Does it work in exclusive mode?
  6. In theory, one should be able to connect a USB DAC directly to a VMware VM. I had very limited success with that -- it only worked for lower sample rates and would sometimes cut-out -- it choked on high sample rates.
  7. Yes, audio works under VMware but there are limitations -- the 2 limitations I can think of off hand are: 1) You are limited by the capabilities of the "virtual" sound device. (You can forget about playing DSD!) 2) I cannot get exclusive mode to work inside a VM. This creates a lot of problems (e.g. changing sample rates and bit depths, etc.).
  8. Is it a pure hiss or can you detect a, perhaps barely audible, hum? Perhaps your cables are acting as an antenna? Anything (speaker/amplifier/turntable, etc) too close to your cables that may cause issues?
  9. Do you mean from the late '80s or early '90s? The first commercial CD was produced in 1982. CDPs were not ubiquitous until the latter half of the '80s. Then Sony made some nice reference disk players.
  10. What about a Sony BDP-S6500 where the firmware has been "upgraded" to be multi-region/zone free?
  11. Actually, I admire @Teresa or anyone who can keep things simple. Nonetheless, I will accept my punishment and maybe even look forward to it!.
  12. I assume your (computer) network, tv boxes (if any) and any remotes you may have for tvs and/or other entertainment units are also corded?
  13. The Best Settings List has been updated (with info above). See post #2 @:
  14. The Best Settings List has been updated. See post #2. Thank you.
  15. How was this determined? I ask since the ABBA Gold CD came out in 1992.
