Extremely easy to use - you don't have to install anything, just plug it in and it's ready to use. Smart and energy efficient - turns itself on and off with your computer. Environmentally-friendly - designed to save power by going into standby mode after 10 minutes of inactivity. It is also very silent compared with other external drives. PC and Mac compatible. $40 - pick up from St Kilda 3182.
  6. HI All, I have just acquired an Auralic Aires LE and I thought it would be a good idea to start up a dedicated thread so other users can share their experiences, tips and tricks. I will take possession early next week and before I do I have been thinking of transferring my music collection onto a new HDD, should I buy a HDD with it's own power supply or should I buy one that uses the Auralic's power? I'm guessing buying one with its own power would reduce any interference. I will be connecting the Aires LE to my Chord Hugo DAC. I'm planning on using the Digital Coaxial over the USB, should I be considering the USB path? If so, why? Thanks for looking.
  7. Hi All, I've had a good hard look around the forums and around the net about how to upgarde my HDD in my SD Foxtel IQ box. Most of the threads are very old and many point to software called SkyCopy+ So I wanted to just put it out there again as a fresh question to see if anyone has had an opportunity to upgrade their SD Foxtel IQ HDD's recently and knew how to backup the old recordings and also install the new HD. I removed my HDD from my Foxtel box and connected it to my PC, when I ran SkyCopy+ it didn't recognise the HDD, so I think the SkyCopy+ app is no longer able to copy Foxtel IQ hdd's for upgrading. Does anyone else know how I can go about upgrading my HDD? My current Foxtel IQ box is about 3 months old and has a 160gb HDD, which in my opinion is not big enough!! Thanks!!
  8. Hello I hoping that the nice people on SNA might be able to provide me with some advice. After several decades buying CDs I am seriously contemplating ripping them and going the way of HD downloads and vinyl in the future. To that end I have undertaken a bit of research on both SNA and elsewhere but remain confused over a few things. What I am after is a system which is simple to use, robust and avoids unnecessary clutter, while allowing me to enjoy high quality sound. Maybe I'm shooting for the moon? At the moment I am playing my CDs through a Leema Tucana II amp into PMC FB1is. I'm very happy with the result. I want to ensure that the proposed source does not end up becoming the weak link in the chain. This is what I have in mind doing at the moment, in order, and as finances permit: 1 Upgrade my circa 2008 iMac. The HDD has about 500 GB. I think I probably need at least 1 TB, if not 2 TB for future proofing? The other issue is that the iMac is operating Windows 7 (I did not install Windows!). Would it be advantageous / necessary to update the operating system or revert it to OS X? 2 Rip my CD collection. What software should I be using? Would I be making a mistake ripping onto iTunes using ALAC? Should I be downloading Amarra etc prior to ripping and using this, and if so how? 3 Back-up my library to an external HDD. How should this be configured so it is compatible with my iMac library? 4 Purchase either a music streamer / DAC (e.g. Naim ND5 XS or Consonance Ref 7) OR a Mac Mini and USB DAC. I am leaning towards the former option because it seems like a neater solution, particularly if I can stream from a NAS wirelessly. Your thoughts? 5 Purchase a NAS, if I don't get a Mac Mini. Am I on the right track ? I am not the most tech savvy person here, so please "KISS"! Cheers
  9. I went into Myer Maroochydore today to see some of the current Panasonic HD TV sets in use. They had a L55ET50A which I persuaded a salesman to let me try out for a while. Unfortunately all these stores tend to daisy chain their sets to broadcast SD commercial TV through some antiquated and tortuous video plumbing with poor quality amplifiers and cables (probably hangovers from the analogue era), so any assessment of picture quality can only be comparative between the various brands and models so lumbered with such poor quality source imagery. To get around this I brought along a portable USB HDD with a range of different video files and still images to try out. My USB powered HDD required 2 USB ports to boot up (using supplemental power as I expected) but was then recognised by the TV. Both my FAT32 and NTFS partitions worked ok. As I use a Mac computer, I tried out a few MOV H264 files that I had made myself. A P&S 640x480 file was pretty well unwatchable scaled up to full screen (as expected but worth a try), although there is the option to view at original size - so best seen on a PC screen anyway. A bunch of 720p H264 MP4s played OK, but as these had been down sampled from 1080p to upload to YouTube, they did not look that great either. I had a 1080p MOV straight out of Final Cut Pro X, but the TV would not recognise this. A shame, as that was the equal of broadcast HD. I then tried out a variety of older AVI format DIVX and XVID type movie encodes from DVD. As long as the bit rate was up there (i.e. video file of at least 1.5Gb or bigger) they were acceptable to watch at armchair distance, although some macro blocking and artefacts were seen. Finally I tried out a few 720p MKV files at 4Gb or bigger encoded from blu ray. These all looked great on the screen and upscaled quite well. I imagine a good quality blue ray player with original disc would produce stunning results on this set but I was unable to try this out. I did not try out the 3D capability either. The menu file navigation system on the set was able to move about a bunch of folders within folders and then the files within those ok. I then tried out viewing photos on the TV. I was immediately disappointed to find that when viewing JPG images, the file structure is totally ignored. The display just dumped thumbs of every JPG image found on the HDD with no way to discriminate and only see a small collection in one folder. This is a severe limitation as I had hoped to be able to have my entire photo library available to selectively view, maybe there are options to deal with this, does anyone know? (The inelegant solution is to load up a thumb drive with those pics desired to be seen). When viewing the JPG files however, the results were exceptionally good. The source images were all well over the 1920x1080 size (many were 21MP from my Canon DSLR) and these downscaled for the screen and displayed extremely well. I am a photographer and being able to view my photos on such a large screen is actually quite important to me. So thumbs up for this, if only the folders containing the images were respected by the TV viewer firmware. I have been looking more into these sets and now will probably wait until June for the release here of another model, which has even better specs, although a slightly smaller screen size. The Panasonic TH-L47WT50A looks to be my choice. Anyone have comments on the above?
