Perhaps you could partition the 2 TB drive and format one partition to be OSX Journaled format (i.e. not...

I was a previous owner of the Jade 5's. Traded them in to move up to Aerial Acoustics (a local (for me) Boston area speaker). Jade 5's are fairly close to full range; if I recall the -10dB point is...

I think the page 78 instructions are now outdated. I did just this (XBMC moved the files over) and now use JRiver to manage the library - for both Sonos and Olive.
