Firmware upgrade and new DAC - amazing! - Tim Hardisty - 05/09/2018
5 years ago I bought a VortexBox and just used the built-in sound card. Roll forward, and it was time to upgrade. Contacted Martin and asked advice and he recommended an IFI Nano and, based on my needs, a firmware upgrade to the new VB Nova (SonicOrbiter based) firmware. The price for the upgrade was more than reasonable so, although I am quite adept at updating things, in this instance I had no time/inclination to do this so decided to send my 'box back for an upgrade, health check, and DAC install (not strictly necessary as it was PnP, but easier at the time!). My box was returned within a few days; a few questions, answered very quickly, due to unfamiliarity with the new software, and I was up and running. What a transformation!. The DAC is so "clean" sounding, with amazing detail and clarity compared to the built-in sound card. Why didn't I do this years ago! The Nova firmware is a HUGE improvement. This, coupled with the rapid response to my questions, means I can 100% recommend both the DAC and Nova upgrade.
