Upgrade From VB Classic to VB MicroServer - Ainsley Hayes - 09/25/2014
I had previously purchased a VB Classic which I found to be excellent. My original setup consisted of the VB Classic paired to a Logitech Squeezebox Touch, and a Music Fidelity M1DAC.After much use I encountered some issues when I tried to update the VB software, so returned it to Vortexbox UK for their attention. Martin got my VB Classic working promptly, however I had subsequently decided to look at the possible options. Martin was very patient and helpful. He listened to my requirements and nothing seemed too much trouble. This was particularly important to me as I have since moved to the other side of the world. The VB MicroServer option was suggested to me, particularly as I have ripped my music already. I must admit that I had not even considered the VB MicroServer but it did seem to tick all my boxes. Martin tailored the VB to my requirements. He also advised to remove the Squeezebox Touch from the equation, and use an iPod Touch/iPhone for the control.The VB MicroServer arrived carefully packaged, and all has been fantastic. I had a few CDs that required ripping, but this is simply done via a USB CD player. The MicroServer is silent, takes up very little space; and sounds even better than my VB Classic did. I would highly recommend the VB MicroServer to anyone, and even more so the A1 customer service that Martin provides. Many thanks!

VB Microserver - Bill Scriven - 12/08/2013
I have now had this little beauty for about a month. I used to have a vortexbox appliance connected to a squeezebox and loved it. Unfortunately I kept the vortex box in a very dusty location and it over heated. I contacted Martin and it was great to be able to talk to an honest enthusiast. He must have spent over half an hour listening to my requirements and advised me to sell the Squeezebox and go for the Microserver with a DAC. He gave me fantastic advice, copied my music from the appliance onto the VB Microserver and set it all up for me. It worked straight out of the box and sound even better than my previous system. Martin provides the kind of service that we are all looking for. Thank You very much!
