Feedback

"My conversion process for some 400 cds is complete and I have moved the Diamond Ultra into the Main stereo rack. I am very pleased with the quality and design of your Music Vault. Ripping was straight forward and quick per your instructions. The sound quality is amazing; I have never experienced such "analog like" sound coming from a digital source. I am experimenting now with download and play of HD files, but they are going to have to be very good to justify the extra expense over converted cds. The J River software is most excellent wrt ease of finding files, portability on iPAD and preservation of artwork.

Thank you for your time and advice. I am delighted with the Diamond Ultra! " - Denny

" Now that my wife and I have listened to the Music Vault I can say without hesitation, it improved the sound quality of my system another order of magnitude. I’m no engineer and not yet even a real audiophile, but I can hear. It’s wonderful to listen to music we’ve had for many years and hear so much more of it. When I first contacted you I almost pulled out because I feared this was something that only a true audiophile using extremely expensive gear could appreciate. I now know that’s not the case. In fact, it may be that the sonic improvements of using your Music Vault may even be more palpable in a modest system like mine. Indeed, the lower the quality of the CD player the more apparent the improvement will become when listening to the same CD played back from the Music Vault...not to mention how much more convenient it is to use.

Add to this the delight of buying something directly from the designer/builder who walked me through every step of setting up the system, and it caps the deal. This has been my best purchase so far. Thank you very much.

Best wishes. " - Kurt H.

" Thank you for providing one of the best audio improvements in my long journey to audio perfection. I am there!, But I may not get to sleep for hours, if not days, as I sit here and relisten to my music. I fear my vinyl albums may not be played for a long time. " - Jack S.

"...the [Music Vault] Diamond produces without question the best digital reproduction I’ve ever heard. Even my diehard vinyl-loving friends say as much. It’s a great product. You should be very proud of it." - Mike C.
