WADAX Atlantis Reference Server
Regarding total music file storage space, an SSD bay can accept any size available on the market. Currently the largest SSD available today is 8TB which means total maximum size is 8TB x 4=32TB. Plus there is an additional 1.9TB of the 2TB internal SSD available for music file storage as well. So the total available is approximately 34TB in terms of raw space. In the future when 16TB SSD's are available, the maximum internal storage size possible in the Reference Server could then be approximately 66TB total.
That being said, one of the important achievements of the Reference Server is the level of performance attained from quality online streaming sources, i.e. Qobuz and Tidal MQA. According to WADAX, the combination of the unique technology developed for the Reference Server with the Reference DAC via the Akasa optical link brings the sonic quality of streaming online music sources much closer to locally stored music files than one could ever imagine. WADAX believes that with their advanced technology playback from local SSD is now mainly focused on availability not quality anymore. By this WADAX is referring to 'Legacy' libraries: i.e. ripped and digitized LP's, unavailable/audiophile tracks not in online streaming services, etc.
