Comments from a recent customer:
Everything is going well with the Vault , i think last week i actually spent more time playing music than ripping it!!
I'm probably about half way through the cd's and then i'll start on the vinyl.
sound seems much fuller and detailed and more lively!! My descriptions probably don't do it justice but a definite uplift , and bear in mind i've come straight from a Bel Canto CD2 and on top of that the convenience and useability factor is brilliant , thanks again.
