NAS's and disk thoughts...

Hi D-Link was a good device for the price! There was a slight glitch adding the second disk after initiating it as a single disk device; it didn't correctly change into RAID 1 (I knew something was up when writing to the NAS; only the one disk light was blinking and the other remained continuously l...

DS: Latest ReadyNAS firmware (release version) available

Hi All After much beta testing (by both Netgear and by many customers like myself) and quite a few revised beta updates, Netgear have finalized the latest firmware for the ReadyNAS series. It might be that you don't wish to change anything if you're simply using the NAS for Twonky/streaming audio (i...

Hi I don't have either of the ones you mentioned but have just been handed a D-Link DNS-323 with Samaung HD103UJ 1T disks in it. I'll load up Twonky tonight, transfer the FLAC's over night and wrap me ears round things tomorrow. I also have an unbranded NAS sitting here (came from Farnell for about ...

Hi I tried to see if there were any differences but there are none in my setup. I first tried Duo with Barracuda NS versus NV+ with Samsung HD103UJ as per previous post. I then tried Duo with Seagate Barracuda enterprise disk (ES) versus NV+ with Seagate Barracua standard disk NS and couldn't hear a...

Hi That's indeed a strange one! I still actually use a heavily modified LK1 for my TV room system (amongst other things, it has active Ninka cards fitted ins the case and additional heatsinking on the main regulators). I've heard systems being improved by damping the equipment cases with piled of bo...

Hi Lego, sorry I missed your response and yes, it's a bit more sane here now (unlike myself).

Hi It is interesting and I had lots of fun trying all sorts of different materials for the shelf and then the effects of damping or not damping them. In the end, I made a mahogany frame table with a thin MDF sheet for the top plate, which sat inside (but not touching) the top horizontal struts. Sort...

Hi My experience with spikes, Skeets and glue (not sniffing it though) would suggest that speakers could well benefit from Skeets on carpet; how fast they move, how easily they move, reflected energy and the recovery time are all worth considering. Many years ago, I experimented with this sort of th...

Hi
Me too, had all three and loved the sound of the Majik but the plastic drawer is a bit cheap and nasty. Does sound good for the money though!

Hello everybody. I just joined to poke my nose into this and add some thoughts to the debate (and of course to sey hello) as its all very interesting stuff indeed! I must admit to being a bit skeptical about hearing differences between NAS devices and disk drives, but have a possible (if unlikely) i...
