1. i am using this hifi tuning : Ultimate Silver Fuse 4a 20mm.

http://www.6moons.com/audioreviews/net/net.html

this is 6moon review. i do suggest to change the fuse. small money and give you obviously wider soundstage and dimension.

2. i also upgraded a diy power cord, and the impression of stock power cord feel like thinner. ( you should know that this monitor grade the sound    was already less rounder )

3. the adaptor i think i will find another one again to test it, not sure if this is jumper issue. i will send you a photo my
    adaptor asap.

4. usb ide - thank for your photo, will look for it .

will send you my 2000 photo asap.

thank you.

I also upgraded the power cable - I made a DIY cable using Supra Cables 'Lorad 2.5' from www.MadiSound.com8)

I'll probably replace the fuse too. It's a cheap enough tweak and the reviews are very positive.

got a new problem now.

today i got a new dac: audio-gd master 7 .

when i connected korg coaxial output to m7 coaxial input, got click click sound.  sound looks like bit unmatched. (there is no
problem for a cd player coaxial output)

will bring another dac to try if there is any defective.

and also check with audio-gd and the tech said that maybe the power output of korg's coaxial is unmatched with m7.
and maybe another dac will work if another dac coaxial power is compartable with korg.

he suggested me to try bnc - rca . will try it asap.

Any thoughts on whether or not a 1TB HDD can work in the MR-2000S?

I imagine a 1TB drive would work, but the physical size of the drive is still limited to a 2.5" form factor and less than 14mm in height. The 500GB drive I used was a 12.5mm and it had no problem fitting inside the case. Most newer 1TB drives are 9.5mm, which wouldn't be a problem. The only problem I could see is if the Korg IDE controller doesn't understand the newer AF (Advanced Format) 4K sector layouts; but most newer drives will do 'on the fly' translations seamlessly in the background - without the IDE controller knowing. I choose an older 500GB drive that used the standard sector formatting, so the issue never came up.

The main thing to remember is that the Korg uses an older IDE controller, so there may be some limitations and compatibility issues to consider if you try to use a drive that big. In theory it should work - but I haven't tried it myself.

Korg could not answer my question about whether the current OS BIOS can read a large capacity HDD and your decision to use an "older" sounds like the right way to go.  There are still some 12.5 mm Toshiba 1.5TB units available that I may try.
