Advent supports both 720k and 781K formats on DSDD 96tpi 5.25 or 3.5"
Advent Turborom with the Advent disk personality board. I have both in mine
One floppy is the 48tpi two sided half height, the other is 3.5" in a PC 5.25"
adaptor and inside I have a third 3.5" as a default boot drive. Lots of storage.
