    Dear Fm540i, Thatís a great idea, I think eventually the hard disk will get tired and replacement is inevitable. I wish to replace mine, can you be kind enough to show me how best to go about doing it. If you think more appropriate, I can give you...

    Keep in mind when listening to Fyne speakers that they need 500 hours of break in according to the engineers I met at RMAF. The 502sp's are different than the 502's. The sp's are more similar in sound and design to the 702's, using similar...

    The N10 only uses the hard drive to cache music to the internal SSD. Once itís on the SSD it plays from the SSD. I just replaced my Samsung 250gb 850 SSD with a larger 500gb Samsung 860 SSD. Iíll see if it solves the problem.
