I am using a samsung 860 Pro 2TB SSD (MLC) for my music files (all at max. 44.1 16 or 24 bit aif files).
After the ripping of an album from CD direct to the drive (all perfectly prepared with dbpoweramp cd grab),
that takes about real-time to rip a cd, but the preperation and warm-up before ripping takes about 3 hrs,
I am then afterwards "perfecting" the rip, again after warm-up with 48 Re-Writes of Rewrite-Data.
I am using for now version 3.19g with High MMX x2. First i make one try of Re-Write in my Ramdisk to
measure the time it takes (on my SSD it is not slower), then i use this plus additional 30 secs in a programm
called GS Autoclicker 3.1.2 to do the un-attended job of clicking Re-Write Data 48x with the correct interwall.
On my 4x 2.00 Ghz Intel Xeon E3 1235L it takes usually between 70-90 minutes for the Re-Writing process of
one Album, again after warm-up. Why do i take all that time to do this? I have found no other solution (yet) to
gain that kind of "perfect" sound.
If i am just downloading an album from the internet, i usually download it first in the Ramdisk and run some infinite
numbers of rewrite first (turn on before i get to sleep), before i re-tagg it, use some more Re-Writing afterwords and
finally convert it and send it the same time to my music drive. After that and 48x Re-Writes later, i am done...
A i crazy, or am i just an perfectionist? Try it youself, before you judge me!
