    This from one of my newest customers:
    If anything, you understated all the virtues of the Music Vault!, Thank you for providing one of the best audio improvements in my long journey to audio perfection. I am there!, But I may not get to sleep for hours, if not days, as I sit here and relisten to my music. I fear my vinyl albums may not be played for a long time.

    Questions for the seller

    Q: which DAC's do you recommend with the music vault whisper? thanks.

    A: HI Howard, I get great results with the Zodiac Gold bundle and of course any of the DCS DACs, Berkley Dacs, MSB DACs. Meitner DACs,,EMM LABs, PS Audio Perfect Wave. All the ones listed above work great with the Diamond as the Diamond has AES/EBU balanced Digital out. I personally use ans sell the Zodiac Gold Bundle, it is $4500 with the external power supply. The Clocking in the Zodiac Gold is unique compared to the other DACs listed and I think gives it the edge over the other DACs in the $5000 and below range. DCS and MSB cost many times that amount and are slightly better. Neal
