Sorry I found a UI bug in PR1, if u hit submit too fast multiple times, it post multiple times. Sorry .... Bank web site does not do that, transfer money, you can hit submit 10 times and it will only execute 1 transaction. But of course we should not compare the same, I am just explaining why I posted my stupid comment 3 times :-). Duh !

This is the area where Apples truly excel. I can't hear any noise even the Mac Pro is in front of me!  
 
----------  
is the mac from mdlover already has the harddisk replaced with SSD? i have a mac pro and it does generate noise albeit low. the noise from the cooling fan is higher. mac pro runs it really hot.  
 
 
HP offers an option to go solid state storage up to something like 200G. Is that worthwhile then?  
--------  
you still have the CPU fan. i would advise to go for fanless or a notebook.

Thanks for the tip though I have no way to find out (latest model, no reference users). Just pray it won't be wuthering!

if it is a desktop, it is ilkely to have a fan inside. doesn't matter how quiet the fan is, you will hear it. i can hear hardisk noise even in my chai wan den.  
 
 
I would totally agree to that tip. This is perhaps one stupid reason why I am still refuse to use USB into a DAC in my envrionment even it sound million times better because I would have to put my laptop close to the equipments area. My piece of shit dell laptop will go loud when the fan kicks in which it will always do. So I go wi-fi ... and just a couple weeks ago I had to upgrade the wi-fi gateway because my old wi-fi was not juicy enough when I play anything higer than 96, it will cut off/stop/choke or whatever, never able to heard the entire song (during the day) without re-buffering, really pisses me off. More powerful wi-fi gateway help tremendously.

我的試用版也有同樣問題,想怕是因為 Mac 机行 Windows 所導致。日後正式安裝,理應解決的。

For classical listeners, a piece of music is likely to last more than 30 minutes and it becomes much more noticeable if you find yourself fast asleep only half way through.  
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------  
 
A good recording on LP rarely lasts more than 25 minutes, so you need to get your sorry ass off the comfy chair and flip to side B ! you don't have time to snooze !! 8^)

It was beautiful overall. And yet occasionally and for some recordings, listening fatigue did set in. This is something I find fairly puzzling. Of course listening fatigue happens in LP and CD too, but not as common as with CAS. There ought to be something along the CAS chain which is more susceptible to distortion. Too high a resolution, may be?  
 
While on this issue, I also find that Mac is more prone to this type of distortion than is Windows.  
 
People may not notice this problem if they listen to pop music mainly or they tend to change disc every four five minutes. For classical listeners, a piece of music is likely to last more than 30 minutes and it becomes much more noticeable if you find yourself fast asleep only half way through.

Another CAS session where a dozen chaps turned up. It was a shoot-out among different output stages on the same DAC circuitry, namely, transformer coupled and direct coupled. The cap coupled version wasn’t available but luckily a diyer brought with him an OCL variant with improved power supply regulations.

Wow, powerful server along with NAS (network attached storage) seems much too complex for my simple application!  
 
I would just kick off with a desktop/laptop plus a DAC. External storage may not even be required in the initial stage. My estimate is only about 500 albums under this category of program source.  
 
mdlover is kind to help me out to set up the computer for lowest latency together with the JRiver/JPlay combo. A great help indeed for a newbie like me!

Arthur,  
 
Thanks so much for the links. Shall try them when my system is up. Right now, I am busy looking for the right desktop or portable, possibly HP and Samsung respectively running on Windows OS.  
 
Bit perfect transfer is of course sacred but the final sound still depends on many other variables — the power supply as advocated by Kuro, the hard disc drive / solid state drive, the output option (ASIO at present), the DAC etc.  
 
A whole lot to fiddle about…….

Unreliable source from Apple engineering actually said FLAC is not lossless  
---------  
you mean the person is unreliable. that's a very good description. FLAC contains a MD5 of the original audio data. if the decoded data is not the same, it can be detected immediately. but then of course he can question the MD5.
