It's actually X-Raid which is Netgears own. I can read and write to the NAS from my PC, but need more time working it out with the squeezebox.

Can't jou just add the NAS's IP to the Squeezebox?
Or does the NAS need specific software to be read by the PC?

So, I got this little (portable) Sony taperecorder in the mail today

Turns out to work rather good. Bit dusty and scratchy, but it's playing, winding and recording.
Made a little video for my own forum where you can watch it work.

In Dutch, obviously

A friend of mine may have bought THE coolest car radio ever on a bootsale today

It's a clarion and it was incredibly expensive back then. This is very overcomplete. It's got four power amplifiers with seperate power supplies, a preamp, cassette player, tuner and joystick for balance/fader. We did some research and it's worth far over $200. We obviously paid almost nothing for it.
We think this was once built into a luxurious touringcar as there's four stereo amplifiers. You wouldn't need that for a regular car.

Anyway, we bought a lot more.
I got myself a nice Sony CDP-XB720QS CD player and a Yamaha KX-540 cassettedeck that came along with the player. I bought a tone generator as well.
Then there's a very nice vintage Italian 8-track player.

I didn't buy that, a friend of mine did.
But I did buy the box with about 100 8-track cartridges that came with it.

Bought some singles, a nice lamp, a vintage pocket databank,... Ah well

There you go. Luckily it's not all mine .

I just built a Valve Buffer stage to go between my DAC and Trpath amp to give my PC system a more valve like sound. Works really well. total cost - $35. so now my PC system consists of PC - DAC - Buffer - Amp - Speakers. not counting the PC and speakers total cost was around $120.

These little ones

They're going to start a battle with my Wharfedale 504's.
The set that wins gets to stand next to my computer monitor .
Nah, I ran into them cheap and don't mind trying them. I've never owned anything by JBL so far. I had a set of TLX43's in my living room for some time, they belonged to my dad. Nice speakers and these little ones have the same units
