    I just picked up this one, I think it's pretty nice but it is a bit bigger than I was originally looking for. lian-li

    Need 2.1 Stereo / Dac Recommendations

    Many of the vintage Technics AVR's have optical and pre-outs, but have not seen a stereo receiver with either. I use an old stereo Technics reciever to drive an unpowered sub off the "B" channel and the main speakers off "A" since both can be active. That doesn't help with your optical in...

    Recommendations for a backup server

    I am running a DL360 with 24TB DAS and MSL2024 library attached to it. I use Robocopy to copy data to the DAS on a schedule and let Windows 2012R2 dedupe take care of the backups to disk. From there I use VEEAM to encrypt and backup to LTO7 in the MSL. It's a bit overkill and power...

    price/performance AVR recommendations

    I bought the Denon X3600 but I got a heck of a deal on it. At the time Crutchfield had it for $200 off and I had another $300 in Best Buy credit so I got it for $599 shipped next day free. I really like it. ARC works perfectly with my Sony TV so I only have to use the TV remote to control the...

    Budget AMD build

    I would agree with pendragon1, go for a 550w or 600w PS at least. Gives you headroom .

    NAS Storage Recommendations

    Stay on the spinners. Even if you look to bond a couple of NIC ports together you still won't see much of an advantage with SSD's on it if any.

    Looking for a HP LTO-4 tape drive docment

    If the computer can see the drive you could use Library and Tape Tools to see if it can pull the codes. It can also do some diagnotic tests and flash the firmware.

    Anybody have 10gb home network here?

    I'm working on getting my Brocade switches set up properly. Got plenty of DAC's and fiber cable to get it done, but I'm a n00b with networking beyond the basics so doing VLAN's and POE properly is taking a bit of time as I only have a little time each day to do anything with it. Fun stuff.

    Yes I do. I have access to firmware direct from HPE. Send me the model number (or part number)...

    Yes I do. I have access to firmware direct from HPE. Send me the model number (or part number) of the library and what kind of drives you have (LTO4,5,etc and Fiber or SAS) and I can pull the firmware.

    Anybody have 10gb home network here?

    I have a Brocade ICX6610-24P and a VDX-6470 as well as a 4 port 10Gbe HP Procurve that has 48x 1Gb ports. I don't know that I'll use the 6740 since it's 40Gb and I don't have any use for that other than as a stack link to the 6610. The 6610 has 8 front 10Gb ports and 4 back 40Gb ports that can...

    HP MSL2024 Tape library firmware

    I can get it for you. Just need the type of drives (SAS vs FC) and the generation of the MSL. I have one with FC LTO7 drives in my home lab.
