Hello. I need to format a drive on Mac to use with Audirvana. As I understand, Mac OS extended Journaled format uses additional CPU cycles to journal activity on the HDD during writes; I am not sure if it consumes any additional CPU cycles during reads / playback on Audirvana. Also, as I understand part of Sound Quality improvement in Audirvana is that Audirvana streamlines the playback process and tries to minimize un-necessary CPU activity. Thus, the following question:
Is there any Sound Quality difference between Mac OS Extended Journaled and non-journaled when used with Audirvana? Is there a Mac Disc format that works best with Audirvana, especially for Sound Quality?
