Melco (Buffalo) 2nd generation media devices

The most expensive variant uses:

Audio Grade SSDs with

No level wearing in write once application
No acceleration to hit benchmark but creates noise
No compression to boost apparent capacity
Isolation via separate PS and non magnetic anti vibration platform

Melco says audio benefits are clear and this is confirmed in HiFiNews June review, particularly for lower priced dacs. Some audiophiles have been paying a lot for the Paul Pang modifications for SSDs, clocks and cables (whose products I have not tried), but I have for sometime been paying attention to such factors.

I have experienced differences both in audio and video uses, in SSDs with the same software and OS. The effects can be quite telling.
