I have a question related to the necessary performance of external disks to stream, HQ audio files from.
As a precursor, I think I am right that intrinsically:
- RBDC is 176kB/s
SACD is 711kB/s
96/24 is 576k/s
172/24 is 1,056Bb/s
QUadDSD is 2,844kB/s
So, this seems to suggest that some of the HQ formats can be demanding on disk performance, e.g. QuadDSD.
Assuming my calculations are correct.
I have just tested my Samsung 1TB SSD and it reports about 40MB/s (vs. my internal SSD at 2500MB/s), and I wondered what people thought about that ‘raw’ disk performance (which appears adequate) and whether that remains adequate in the real world?
