Neal: My Music Vault II has been up and running for about a week and I’ve now started ripping my old CDs. As I go along my wife and I spend time in the evening listening. I want to share our thoughts about what we are hearing and thank you for this product. In my experience, unfortunately, many purchases have not always met expectations. Your Music Vault, however, does...superbly. By way of background, I’m new to the world hi-end audio. Because my budget is limited, I’m also at the low end of the spectrum. My system is currently comprised of a Peachtree Audio Nova which includes a preamp, amp and DAC, and Kef Model 100 speakers. I use Sonos for internet radio. I also have a surround sound home theater system driven by an NAD receiver and Oppo disk player, but the Kefs are still driven through pre-outs by the Peachtree The Music Vault II is plumbed to the Peachtree and its onboard DAC, using an Audioquest Coffee USB cable. I assembled this system after careful auditioning of many pieces of equipment at a local retail store and, perhaps like many people, coming to grips with my budget. Because I was replacing a very old and very poor system, there were several steps along the way that I found truly revelatory in improving the sound quality from what I was used to. First, shifting from my computer’s ‘penny DAC’ to a higher quality DAC opened up levels of clarity, resolution and crispness that I had never heard before. Second, shifting to a better quality preamp and amp likewise moved the separation and soundstage up a big step. But frankly, although I continue to audition other much more expensive gear and I can hear improvements, I have not yet heard anything that improves the sound so much that it justifies the large expense. Stated differently, it’s not just that I’m being a critical listener...I’m cheap. It takes a lot of improvement to get me to reach for my wallet. 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 Hermanns
