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!

I was very impressed with this server, worked straight out of the box and has improved my Duets perfectly. The system just runs. Wished I had found this years ago.I bought the USB DVD drive to rip and all works smoothly. Martin is very helpful...Excellent
