If you only have 160 GB of Intel 320, I would not "waste" it on OS and SW. My advice would be to buy a cheap small 64 GB SSD for the OS. Thank you Linnofil. I've looked for a cheap 64GB among the ones you suggested in this thread (Samsung 830, 840 Pro and of course Intel 320) but it seems there's n...

Thanks for the link, Paolo. It is indeed a tempting offer. It was only the '8MB-bug' (obviously not cured to date) which pushed me to a vendor where I get a regular invoice. Good point Klaus, I see Intel says they've fixed the bug with latest firmware but it's still occuring anyway. Anybody of you ...

Hi Linnofil and all, first of all thank you for your very detailed and informative reply to my message.

I find Test1 easily more meaningful and involving. Similarly to previuos comparisons I find the difference musicacally quite important and mainly related to pitch and timing (both greatly affecting the tune): in particular Test2 piano notes' tempo is somewhat floating and undifferentiated where in T...

Hi all guys, just curious about your final verdict with Davaar after a while from its introduction.

Thanks for your comments Thomas, Charlie and Tony, sure both MCD and MK had the same PS so if the new Radikal Dynamik fits one it will fit both.

So the qs. comes immediate, is it possible to install the new Radikal Dynamik into a Majik CD? It would be of course an attractive upgrade for the many users of Majik CD, giving it that bit more...

Paolo, you use an older Twonky than Erik and Daniel. That is likely ONE reason you get different results. Yes I agree ML, this can be for sure one of the reasons.
