Not only is the Vortexbox a great product but the service from Vortexbox UK is amazing. New years eve, updating my system (in Hungary) remotely from the UK. Star performance.
Game Change - Roddy Elder - 10/28/2012
I use the prestige along with a Squeezebox with DAC/DAC power supply in a Naim Audio/Linn hifi system.This set up has completely changed my view of digital music. I was a late adopter of cd and didnt buy a really good cd player for many years as the cds never really hit the mark like vinyl. It is interesting now that in these days of vinyl renaissance I have found something that closes the gap between good analogue and digital considerably.FLAC files seem to have more detail than the cds (through the cd player) while demonstating fabulous timing and dance-abilily. This is no small deal. The cd player that I have is the original Naim CD5 with power supply which, taken together is more expensive than the 2 TB prestige plus SB plus DAC.The prestige finish and function are superb and it sits nicely into a good quality hifi system without looking like a piece of computer equipment.The help provided by Martin during set up of the system was fantastic.The only mistake I made was I bought only a 2TB model. I am also using it to rip and store movies (my tv can access the movies from the VB wirelessly). I should have got the 4 TB version and I would recommend anybody to go big.Returning to the main deal (music). I am listening to music that I haven't heard for ages, it sounds great, it is convenient to use, and the finish is of the highest order.Love it and fully recommend it.Roddy Elder
