    Hi,

    I have LP-16 ( Player) .so I would like to ask if it is better to use SSD disk with this player or traditional portable HDD or efficient USB Thumb ?

    Thank you.

    For playback almost every drive should be ok.
    May worth to consider to use SSD/USB stick because those drives have no moving parts.
    For the best performance please update the firmware on your LP-16 then format the USB drive with LP-16 before you starting to use first time.

    I tried a Sandisk Ultra fit USB 3.0 64Go Thumb. No glitches, but it heats a lot. Any risk of damaging the LP-16 ?

    No don’t worries about this.
    As I know correctly it heats around 50°C right?
    We also use that drive one the MusikMesse I was also surprised how hot the drive.

    Hi Lazslo,

    Thanks for your reply

    I read somewhere it could heat unttil 69°C by through USB 3.0 ports, and could damage the ports.

    With USB 2.0 ports (can you confirm it is a USB 2.0 port on the LP-16 ?), the temperature will be lower as the transfer speed will be also lower.

    I think here it is about 50-55°C. Do you have an idea from which temperature, this would damage the LP-16 USB port ?

    Hi,

    Yes I can confirm all Cymatic Audio device using USB 2.0 port.
    I made a test, in my test case the Sandisk drive heat up to 50°C.
    I talked with our HW engineer he can confirm even 70°C cannot be a problem for the USB port on any Cymatic Audio device

    Hey.
    Any recommendations for minimum writing speed on usb sticks used for play back on Utrack24 with loads of tracks? 🙂

    For playback purpose the writing speed does not make any difference.
    If you want to use only for playback the writing speed have impact only the transferring time where you export the song from your PC to your USB drive.
    The playback not that sensitive for the USB medium type so you can use any kind of USB2.0; USB3.0 drives.

    Thank you for the quick answer!
    I actually ment reading speed, and not writing speed as I wrote 😳
    So It should work with reading speeds around 130 mbps? It’s really smart with the very small usb drives but their reading speed is only around 130 mbps so if that’s not enough the smart part goes off 😉

    That is much more than enough
