PC audio technology has come a long way over the years, as has the graphics field. There are many sound cards available for those who need good sound quality, and high-end motherboards also come with powerful sound chips. Audiophiles, on the other hand, can spend large sums in search of the perfect sound. However, the sounds that we can call the buzz produced by the equipment we use can be disturbing.
A 1TB capacity NVMe SSD that surfaced on the Audiophile Style forums seems to have solved the sound problem. The drive comes with 1TB of 3D DollarsC flash, but only has 333GB of usable storage. This is because the SSD runs in the so-called SLC (pSLC) mode, which changes the usable capacity in favor of performance and durability.
In particular, there are SSDs on the market that use pSLC modes for some tasks. The developer claims that using this mod improves sound quality and outperforms the standard DollarsC mod.
“ The sound quality is only based on our testing experience, this test was carried out under the same standard product (unchanged PCB, external power input, crystal oscillator, capacitors, etc.).
DollarsC mod: Sounds like background music, lacks features and powerless, everything is flattened, lacking extension and density.
pSLC mode: There is a special natural feeling, it becomes more smooth and calm. The sound thickness is slightly increased and is generally more resistant to hearing.”
As for the rest of the driver’s features, a Crystek CCHD-957 Femto clock oscillator, two Audionote Kaisei 220uf capacitors, an external 5V DC power input, an eight-layer PCB with 2oz copper, Milspec PCB robustness, 300% grounding area, 5u gold-plated connectors and CNC There is talk of a copper heatsink with .
