Your greatest high end audio purchase!!!
A pair of Focal Sopra 1 speakers brand new in the box with stands for $5000.00. Won’t ever sell them unless I become a full time nomad. Great sound and they always make me 😊

Has anyone been able to define well or measure differences between vinyl and digital?
Silly question.  Go with what sounds best on your system.  
Fiber Optic Internet
FYI, I use Frontier’s FIOS Internet in SW Florida. I have been a customer for 15 years.  Great service.  Signed up for their new plan 500Mbps up/500Mbps down.  $44.99 a month using autopay.  No contract or installation fees.    
In the US, how is your internet connection terminated in the home?
Mine is the same as @badhippie.  Fiber to the side of the house then converted to ethernet to my router.

HDD format issue for music files
Format the drive on your MAC as exFAT and add your files on the MAC.  They will be viewable on a PC.  
Sony HAP-Z!ES won't play after disk swap
Did you format the new disk? I have had two HAPZ1s and two HAPS1 and the disc swaps went off without a hitch. Both HAPs can only utilize up to 2TB drives.  
SST Ampzilla 2000 SE MB and Ambrosia Preamp
The SST Ampzilla monoblocks won’t such that much power the previous post were talking about different amps.  I own the Ambrosia 2000 SE and the Son of Ampzilla II.  I am very pleased with this setup!
