Ok, so many of us are using RAM-OS now and our audio playback is run completely from ram.  Is it time to take a closer look at the ram we are using?  I ask because there is a group of people in my part of the world that claim single-rank ram sounds better in their playbacks (not XXHE or NOS1a playbacks mind you) than dual or quad-rank ram.

From the little reading I have done, single-rank ram is about 7% faster and the whole of the ram can be accessed at any one time, whereas the other configurations mean only a portion of the ram is accessible at any one time.  What does this mean to XXHE?  I don't know.  But with RAM-OS we are in a position where this sort of thing might just make a difference.

Single-rank might allow us to use even lower SFS.  It might have other benefits or it might do nothing at all.

Is there anybody out there using single rank ram and RAM-OS?  I am considering getting some just to try out.
