How does this apply to audio ???

Hi Abe,

I have read up on TB and still don't see how it will help audio. If you are doing massive backups from one hardware controlled SSD RAID0 array to another hardware controlled SSD RAID0 array that is one thing, but that is not audio.

24/192 audio is a lot smaller than USB3, SATA3 or TB. I use SATA3 SSDs that load complete tracks into memory and then play out of memory. How would TB improve playing out of memory? I am already getting parallel 500MB read/write speeds (one for OS and one for data) and would need a dedicated PCIe hardware RAID0 card to get faster speeds or buy a multi-thousand $$$ FUSION card.

I have yet to see a USB3 DAC. If much faster above 24/192 speeds was better, the DAC manufactures would already be building USB3 DACs.

Also, TB is 2X USB3 speeds, but my Z77 mobo's already have multiple USB3 and SATA3 controllers, so I already have more speed than TB that I am not using to its fullest.

Any thoughts as it applies to audio?
