Hi there Todd,

We are all summer-slow - no worries.
But a question : Super great about the Ferrari's which grow all over you, but do you also have an XXHighEnd PC-Ferrari ?
Maybe you do and I forgot. Browsed briefly through some email titles and don't see it there either.


Anyway I'd like to purchase the whole package

... you don't mean the PC with that, do you ? whistle

Hey Peter,

I'm kind of like Mani right now. I've been so swamped with other things, I have not even had a chance to mess with my audio system.

I purchased a new SSD, downloaded the correct build of Windows 10 probably almost two months ago and the SSD is still in its sealed box & I haven't even put Windows on a bootable disc. Pretty pathetic. Wink

Anyway I'd like to purchase the whole package, and if I haven't already  bought the license for the latest XX by the time your ready to ship it out to me we'll add that in too.
I'm really looking forward to getting back to my audio. I've got some new woodworking equipment coming in and I'm getting ready to pair a bunch of 101db sensitive 15" drivers in an open baffle setup with my BD Orphean horns. I've already got some cool finish ideas with some carbon fiber sheeting & Ferrari Rossa Corsa paint. Definitely won't be subtle smile

Once again Peter, thank you for continuing to advance all ends of the playback chain. It's easy to rekindle our audio passion with you around!!!

If someone (like me) already has an XXhighend PC, can it be updated to this current status w/ windows 10??? Grin

You talked about a usb stick instead of a HDD before.
Would that also be possible? Would make it a lot easyer in my setup.  Happy

Hi Dave,

are we talking a wireless lan or hard-wired?  Can I get a NAS and just do point to point wiring or do I need to get a router?

Hard-wired. And you can use a router, but point-to-point is advised.

So XXHighEnd knows to save your changes to the hdd (very cool).  In essence this PC really can only be used for xxhighend and nothing else.

Nah, sort of;
If you dive more into XXHighEnd you will see/learn that RAMDisk operation requires an environmental "set up" that allows to save the changes WITHIN XXHIGHEND to permanent storage. Nothing super special about that, apart from it being very convenient that it happens.
The same thing now happens to our next dimension of RAM and permanent storage.

So you can try to think another way around :
Suppose you use JRiver, dunk that yourself to RAMDisk and change settings in there - now hope that provisions have been made by JRMC to save those settings for you to permanent storage.
This is unrelated to your quote, if you only also grasp this :

All OTHER means of changes, like given example of renaming a file, is not done by XXHighEnd. Still you can do that redundantly yourself. Think a virtual machine not allowing write changes, while you still want to change the base (you want to apply the writes after all). Normally this requires a re-gen of the OS. I did it more smart (sort of because I ain't - and if I was I would have made an incremental change to permenent storage (like backups can work)).

And do notice that we talk "Audio PC" and not a work PC or something. And worse : We talk about the physical XXHighEnd PC as well, because regarding drivers etc. I made it for that (sh*t happens with a pre-configured OS).

Clear a bit ?
Ah, I'm sure it already was. But true, you could say that this (PC) is for XXHighEnd only. But, what's the difference with a Virtual Machine without writing through changes, which is always for "a" purpose ?
The difference is that external factors now first imply the "no writes" (because we're in RAM) and that now provisions must be found/created to apply those changes after all. Just for convenience.

No, only at the very first time using one of the "Contiguous" settings, the system needs to set something and reboot for it. This probably happened "months" ago for you and you forgot.

There's no need to check it; when it is set in the settings and it works, it really works internally as well.

I found I can connect a NAS directly to a computer using static IP addresses.  My question is if the OS is always loaded into RAM how do I make configuration changes in Windows that will be saved.  I'm obviously missing something.

Hi Peter,

You are right, is for 3.5".

The 2.5" diskbay is the one combined with a dvd drive option? The TS03. I have had one of these as well in the past. Will check my old stuff if it is still there.

Else I will look for an alternative.

Regards, Arjan

I really did not spend sufficient time on this, but to me this looks like to be for 3.5" - not 2.5".

I like to apply one standard for this : 2.5" which in the end is also related to WW shipping (2.5" weights 100 grams).
