RE: Seagate now offers

well , as I posted 10 TB won't be free (unfortunately:) and it will cost $300 which is close for what you can buy empty drive on e-pay. What I like about the collection (half of it crap as usual) is that it is retrospective , organized and convenient to use. The situation when one runs out of space in 10 TB drive and doesn't want to have a few drives attached to the cute Mac toy is imaginable I guess. I think I will buy it, find somebody with storage capacity move the files , re-format the drive for PC and move the files back. The PC system was not used for anything but music in conjunction with high end pro dac. It doesn't have any other software not even a wireless internet and I will keep it as is. First step, I will just buy AES/SPIDF transformer adapter so I can hook it up to an RA Opus 21 CD player's digital input. That player is using a CD room as a transport and guess what. The dac of that player hooked up to a half decent transport (Sony ES from 98') sounds quite a bit better than the player as a whole.
To expand further that $5k pro Dac was easily bettered on Red book CD's by cheap Audio Note kit dac using spectral SDR-3000 as a transport.
