I forgot to ask you earlier: is there any specific reason you keep your files on SD cards as opposed to, say, a removable hard drive? It seems like you'd need a large number of cards if you have more than a couple thousand songs.

That is an excellent question, that I can answer even by not being the person asked the question.

 

Removable hard drive's are nice and all, but they take up a lot of space in a backpack, and aren't really portable. They cost a lot, and don't work with DAP's.

 

On the other hand an SD is very portable, and doesn't take up backpack space. SD cards can be used with DAP's like the Askell & Kernel DAP's. 

 

The SD cards also come in 64gb which can hold up to 15,000+ songs, so nobody is ever going to need more than two SD cards.

They're actually 64 GB microSD cards, reformatted to FAT32. I like having the ability to move my "library" between sources. I keep them in a credit-card sized holder:



http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00ANN99HO

I use them in my DAP (a Sony PCM-M10 96/24-capable recorder/player) and in my laptop's card reader, at home, and with a different laptop at work, using a microSD to SD adapter (where the laptop's HDD can get be used by other apps without Foobar having to compete for throughput).

The microSD cards are essentially giant playlists, groomed to only keep what I enjoy. I freely delete the files I'm sure I'll never want to hear, but some albums are complete.

The original dbPoweramp rips (entire albums) from CDs and my Hi-Res downloads, exist as both FLAC and WAV on two external, 1 TB Seagate Constellation (server class HDDs) in fan-cooled Thermaltake enclosures with USB 3.0 and eSata interfaces, that are manually "mirrored" for redundancy. But I never play from those drives.

Lastly, all of the microSD cards are backed up to both of the external drives. Since I'm frequently adding and deleting files from the microSD cards, I use SyncExpert freeware to keep the HDD copies synchronized.

Thanks for the thorough and complete answer; I see why it has its advantages. I prefer my 1.5TB USB hard drive as portable music storage, but I then have to maintain separate libraries on DAPs and on the computer in my main rig and keep it all up-to-date. I just enjoy having the organized folder structure and ability to have my whole collection in one place that comes with the hard drive.

The addition of a cheap garage sale Eames chair is the single best audio decision I've made in a long while.

 

 

 

 

The AMC makes a great pairing with any warm headphones or speakers, and is one of the few pieces of equipment that I've never had thoughts of selling. The bright, snappy sound signature of the preamp and the fabulously silent tone controls are among the best I've heard at any price bracket. It's getting a little old and electronically finicky now, but I think if I take the case off I can get at it with DeoxIT and make it good as new.

I wish. I should clarify that it's a replica, and not an incredibly accurate one at that (it has four legs, flat armrests, and fairly cheap wood). But hey, I'm not really one to spend thousands of dollars for curvy armrests, higher-quality leather, and pedigree. It's a perfectly comfortable chair, and I believe it's a bit smaller than the real thing, which fits me well.
