Addendum ,error correction About my set up - Thaya - 27/08/2015
My setup is Sonos play 5 2, Sonos connect 1, Naim uniti 2 , and various laptops, pc's running windows 7&10 ,Apple Mac, Linux, IPads , IPhones all work perfectly so far. Used for 3 days after setting up in about 1 hour but it will work straight out of the box in a simpler set up. Spotify, tuneup premium all work well
Brilliant Product & Excellent Service - Thaya - 27/08/2015
It seems to do all it claims so far in Audio. I have not used it for ripping Discs or for video streaming so can't comment on that. I use DB power amp on a PC for ripping cd. Martin at Vortexbox UK was extremely helpful in helping me to choose the product and configuring it. He spent nearly 2 hours with me in explains and showing me the workings(by prior appointment). He answered subsequent queries promptly and in detail. He is a real enthusiast and very knowledgeable.I would strongly recommend anyone buying a product to spend some time doing a shortlist of your needs and then discuss with Martin or visit him if you need. He will help you choose the right product and configure it. Value for money? I would have been happy paying twice the amount for the service, configuration and help in buying the right product. My set up : so is play 5 2; songs connect 1; Naim uniti 2; Yamaha AV amp. All work without a glitch with the mini server.
Excellent Music Play & Storage - John Langley - 20/05/2014
I am delighted with my VB Microserver Silent SSD, it is straight forward to set up and easy to load with ripped music files. It is easy to operate on my Samsung Tablet with a down loaded music play app. and delivers the music to my Dac in a straight forward trouble free way. I can now run my music files 24/7, totally independently of my PC. Interestingly, the sound of my music has improved now my music files are being delivered free of all the workings of the PC.
