Vortexbox Lux with S/PDIF output - Martin - 07/08/2014
The Vortexbox Lux with hybrid SSD/hard disk is a very smart looking product. It is very quick to index newly ripped CDs and offer them in the Squeezelite player. Martin tested the S/PDIF worked with a wide range of DACs before shipping the Vortexbox as I had not decided which serious HiFi DAC to buy; his effort was really appreciated.
Chord Hugo with Vortexbox LUX - Martin - 05/30/2014
This model works great with the Chord Hugo DAC and sounds suberb. Set up was easy, just plugged the DAC in via the supplied USB cable to the high definition input on the Chord, the DAC apeared under the configure player menu on the vortexbox, I pressed update and that what it.
An Excellent Device - Nick Scotchmer - 04/25/2014
The Vortexbox Lux worked really well right out of the box and is straightforward to use and control. The advice provided by Martin was excellent. I have paired the VB with a good quality DAC and together they produce a tremendous listening experience. I strongly recommend this product if you are looking to move to a server-based home audio system.
VortexBox 1Tb Lux - Chris W - 01/20/2014
I have used a WD NAS for a few years and it has been temperamental to say the least, so after much thought I replaced it with a VortexBox Lux. It has restored my faith in this technology.Out of the box it just works, and with the aid of only the instructions I got easy access to it through the Browser GUI and was able to set one or two things that I needed changing, everything else was done to my requirements from the factory, and bingo, off we went. Ripping CDs, moving files from other devices, the Naim SuperUniti just found everything and played it, and it sits on the equipment rack, looks good, works silently, and does it's thing.I cannot recommend these things highly enough, and the support from the Company is superb, and at 25% the cost of a UnitiServe, must be the bargain of the century.Thanks to all at VortexBox.
