Anybody using a NAS fed music server? I'm using a WD Mycloud to feed DACphile and other DLNA clients. The HD is pretty much full, so I need something new and BIG. I was thinking about just getting a bigger mycloud, but after playing with the DLNA end, I've come to the conclusion that a: Twonky sucks, or b: WD's implementation of Twonky sucks. (popular opinion seems to be WD is at fault for not offering any support for Twonky even though they list it as a feature).

Can anyone offer a decent cheap alternative to the mycloud (forgot to mention WD's smb security issues). I mention cheap since I'll only be using this for music/file serving and don't need to spend the big $$$ for fancy hardware video decoding and other stuff alot of these NAS offer

Hey! You're still around. I was worried we might have lost you in the <in big boomy echo voice> Forum Change Apocalypse:beyersmile:

I think I remember @peter123 speaking highly about those VE cables

Tell me about it, I was ready to give up on the site. I am not really happy with the design changes and I don't think I will ever adjust to it :/

On another note I've been spending the last days redecorating my lab and I've gotta admit that I'm pretty happy with the result:

Damn, now I really have some serious gear envy.

Is it just me, or do those cables look tiny for a pair of cans? With my tendency to step on/pull cables, I don't know if they'd stand a chance in my world - nice thing bout the Grados, you could tow a vehicle with the stock cable

Looks beautiful! :beerchug:

By the way, that keyboard looks bloody nice - according to Google it is a Microsoft Sidewinder X6, isn't it? Too bad it's using rubber domes and no mechanical switches - although I have to admit that I regularly like writing on rubber dome keyboards too, and am even using flat scissor switch keyboards for writing most of the time. Yes, I would definitely say that I'm using my scissor switches more often than my mechanical keyboards for writing, mainly because of the slimmer key caps.
There was one manufacturer who introduced a keyboard with flat mechanical switches about a year ago (forgot the name), however it's a wireless, portable model designed for the iPad Pro. Would be nice to see flat mechanical switches in flat desktop keyboards in the not too distant future, although I have to say that the wear on my Kensington Advance Fit, the scissor switch keyboard I'm using most of the time at the moment, is lesser than I expected.
Anyway, is there a reason why you're not using the number pad?

Thanks Chris! I've honestly got no idea, I believe it's an old one just found it laying around. You may be right about it being Microsoft branded but I'm not at home for a couple of more days so I'll have to confirm when I am.

Sweet! I'm still using cigar humidors.
Thanks! I've got some old cigar boxes around as well but unfortunately without the humidity control.

@raypin , that's all? Just HE1, HD800, HD800S, Utopia, Stax, Chord DAVE, and a few other things? :D

Don't think anybody can follow that :wink:
