What interface are you using for the different SSDs? Speculation on my part, but if that interface isn't directly to the sata ports on the mobo, maybe it's not allowing musical differences between SSDs to show through... It would be good to get a better understanding of what is going on especially since your results are different to those reported previously.

I'm not sure what you mean by interface. My Hakai Server runs SnakeOil OS. Within that I use Minimserver and my file system at the moment is NTFS. Within SnakeOil OS I have other options but my focus for the moment is on building a new Hakai Server and dedicated player based on what I believe to be the best parts of the Hakai approach and the extensive work done by Tasso, Agent_Kith and Chan on the Australian server site.

I believe Agent_Kith uses the CIFS approach to file sharing, having tried both CIFS and NFS.

Basic question perhaps, anyway... I believe I see a variety of SSD’s in your pictures FairPlayMotty: does that mean that it’s not so critical exactly which type is used for music storage space?
My experience has been there's negligible difference in the sound quality of the SSDs holding the flac files. I always use an Intel 320 for the operating system - there's a big difference there.
I've not experimented - all the SSDs I've used have been Intel 320s. BUT: the recommendation for the LSNAS was Intel 320s for the data storage, and perhaps a compromise on the OS SSD.
After some reading around recent developments in the manufacture of SSDs I think the technology may have moved on since the LSNAS days. Even since I bought my 1TB SSDs to build my Hakai Server I could have 6TB of storage space for not much more than I paid then for 3TB.

I used to subscribe to a technology magazine. Reading past issues from a year or more back is amusing. The rate of change leaves best buys in parts of the IT world looking like a joke relatively fast.
