Vinnie Will you be offering digital-only mods also, or only the whole enchilada? And can the BNC jack be changed to RCA or AES/EBU for those of us without BNC connections on our DACs? Things are getting interesting. This may tempt me to sell my Squeezebox....
Someone had to ask: In the final analysis, if faced with the choice of going with a modded SB3 or "whole enchilada" modded Olive Music server - without regards to price or feature/function - could you share your opinion as to which produces the best sound? Matt
1) Computers tend to hate losing power suddenly. Is there any backup power in case the battery runs out during operation? 2) It's a long shot, but is it possible to implement the SLA battery mod to a "regular" audio PC, at least to power certain portions like the pro soundcard?
Is it easy to upgrade the hard drives in these? Is the interface IDE or SATA? It's strange that these systems cater to the Mac crowd but don't list Apple Lossless as a supported format.
Wow Vinnie !!! A new amp and a new digital source....nice !!! Looking forward to hearing them. Good luck !!!!
Any thoughts on the Opus Vinnie?
According to the Olive Web Page the Musica holds 400 60 minute CD's. Therefore if your average CD is 45 minutes, it will hold 625 CD's. ZLS
If a set amount of storage space can hold 180 minutes of music, it can hold 3 60 minute CD's or 4 45 minute CD's.3:4 = 450:600 45 minute CD's
Of course I can't help but wondering what would be the result if I replaced the hard drive with a larger one, powered up the unit with the Olive Recovery CD to reload the operating system (I've heard it was Linux-based) and see if it works.
Speaking of HD storage, I'm surprised my comments above haven't generated a little more buzz here
Is there really room to mount a 3.5" drive in a sufficiently cooled, sound isolated manner?
Just a question for Vinni - out of curiosity any reason a BG was used for the output cap rather than say an auricap?
