    I do tape backups. DLT is great. I have about 100 tapes
    and use Arkeia.

    >Is your server dedicated to digital music?


    Yep. I bought the server and added as much ram and disk drives as it
    would hold for the sole purpose of storing music.

    Yep. So would buying credits at allofmp3.com. I've done that and
    download just the albums I own. Saved me a bunch of time
    from having to split up WAVs recorded from an imperfect album.

    Mine too. Don't know how I survived without a DAC before. Not sure
    about
    the whole tube thing. I'm more of a solid state guy.

    The thing that holds me back, besides cash, is I'm afraid I'll lay out $$$
    for a standalone DAC, and a year or 2 later, somebody will put equivalent or
    better DACs in a sub-$200 DVD player.
