This Music Vault Emerald was traded in on a new Music Vault M7 and is in excellent shape.
The Emerald is a world-class Music Server. Unlike the Music Vault II the Emerald has Analog outputs. The sound quality of these RCA outputs is nothing short of amazing. It will easily keep up with DACs that cost as much as the Emerald does. I describe the sound quality as having much of the same charecteristics of a enjoyable tube dac or preamp. i.e. it is very easy to listen to and enjoy all day long.
The Emerald includes analog inputs too giving you the option to record any analog source.
This Emerald includes a Blue Ray Drive for ripping your CDs.
The Emerald also includes a excellent SPDIF BNC output for a perfect 75 ohm impedance.
Remote control your Emerald from any Android or Apple iPad/iPhone device. In addition, you can access the Music Vault Emerald from any computer on your home network or on the web.
The Music Vault Emerald will play back High Resolution downloads up to 24-bits/192 KSPS without loss into your Preamplifier -Integrated Amplifer or Receiver.
It has whisper quiet operation due to its fan-less Power supply and motherboard design.
The Emerald uses a Solid State drive for the operating system and software control. I recently upgraded the SSD to a Samsung 250 GB SSD.
The 2-TB drive auto-duplicates itself onto another 2-TB drive. This includes all ripped music, music downloaded from the internet, or music copied from your friend's hard drive. Music stored on-board in this manner outperforms external storage for optimum convenience and sound quality.
The Music Vault Emerald will store and back up over 4500 CDs.
Additional storage is easy to add with external USB hard drives. These additional drives can be configured as extra storage or back-up.
The Music Vault Emerald will store your CDs in WAV Format, FLAC Files or AIFF.
Sound Science will be in Room 1125 at the 2015 Rocky Mountain Audio Fest.
We are now Larsen Speaker Dealers, Speakers actually Designed to work with your listening rooms acoustics.
There is a slight chip in the paint on the top lid.
I will provide a 18 month warranty on the entire Music Vault parts and labor.
This is one great sounding Music Server.
