Saw some figures from an analyst a while ago, all ipod sales have fallen to nominal levels for Apple as a whole, they may still be profitable, but low importance. On capacity, don't think they have changed in yonks? I know I've seen hacks about getting much bigger drives in (so technically not a big deal), but Apple havn't revisited the product in years.
Pelican? No way! You gotta go with Stormcase. Or at least you did until Pelican bought, not sure if the quality has changed.
Apparently the "truck driving over a case" demonstration is more show than substance.
Odd reaction to think of price gouging first;
Some of the ones I've noticed;
Abbingdon Music Research DP-77 (?) EUR3600 "two separate DACs; a HD 32-Bit DAC and a Classic 16-Bit DAC "
Anedio D2 DAC USB1500 ESS Technology ES9018 Sabre Reference 32-bit DAC
Antelope Audio Zodiac EUR1,600-EUR3,000
April Music Eximus DP1 USD3200 TI PCM1794A
Arcam R33 "only" stg2000 "2x Burr Brown 24-bit 192kHz Advanced Segment Delta-Sigma"
ATOLL DAC200 ...
Reading Stereophile, browsing computeraudiophile and digitalaudioblog I'm struck by the number of high end DACs appearing out there in the 2,000 to 7,000 price range. There appears to be a huge range and choice, though I wonder if there are too many for specialist retailers and agents to handle, much less potential buyers to audition.
I am revising my opinion of nosleep. When it is turned on with the lid closed the fan seems to run all the time. Having the lid closed, the processor on ful, with the fan on means the machine gets warm, istat nano says the CPU is upto 80c. So I think it is back to no nosleep and just leave the lid 1-2cm open.
Tried attaching a USB mouse & closing the lid. It did wake up the mac but the attached Drobo didn't fully wake-up (it seemed to try but went back to sleep) and the Mac seemed to go back to sleep when the Drobo did.
I will try plugging in a keyboard or mouse, thanks. If Salon goes to the trouble of writing an article on this it is an real issue.
Dr Webster, have you tried nosleep-extension. Cheaper & less space intensive than a keyboard.
