Bluesound Vault

PatL, Crutchfield
17 March 2014
  • Summary: It is easy to set up and integrate with your receiver/amp. But, the app for the iPhone and iPad could use some serious revamping. They are slow and sometimes crash. Considering the Vault is pretty useless without the app, this is a significant issue. My internet connection is good so that isn't the issue. The Vault uses internet data to get Album and song titles so if you aren't connected you can rip a CD but it gets saved as 'Untitled'.
  • Pros: Easy to set up and good sound quality when paired with a good quality receiver
  • Cons: Software could use a lot of work.

Bluesound Vault

Lew M., Crutchfield
17 March 2014
  • Summary: I jumped at the opportunity to buy this product so that I could dump my 400 disc Sony changer. I must say that, after having this unit for about two months, I think I know its capabilities quite well. The three star rating is for all the aggravation it causes. Let me begin. The problem is that there is not included software to help you organize your CD's.
  • Pros: Great way to store and play discs
  • Cons: No organizing software for your ripped CD's.

A Solid Solution

Jason, Crutchfield
17 March 2014
  • Summary: The search for Bluesound was motivated by a need to find a high resolution streamer that could support full 24/192 FLAC files in GAPLESS playback with a user friendly interface...and I consider the vault a success in all three categories. The most challenging aspect was finding a streamer that supported gapless playback since I regularly listen to classical albums that require uninterrupted track-track transitions for faithful reproduction.
  • Pros: 1. Clean Iphone / Ipad interface (Ipad has better functionality). 2. GAPLESS 24/192 high resolution playback. 3. Great value - 1TB drive, CD ripper, and streamer all in one. 4. Bluesound platform is a great foundation for high resolution streaming. 5. Found and played all music on my existing NAS.
  • Cons: 1. Limited streaming services support (no pandora, spotify, mog, etc.) 2. CD ripper wasn't perfect in picking artwork and track titles...this is true for all ripping software, BUT there is no good built in way to modify artwork and track titles...I had to use JRiver at times. 3. Sometime requires "re-indexing" and "reloading artwork" to find all albums - a bit buggy at times. 4. Integrated highresaudio downloads aren't truly "integrated" and many titles have region re...

Perfekt

  • Summary: Kanonljud med inbyggd hårddisk. Lätt att installera och att styra med iPad eller iPhone. Wimp funkar perfekt, lite synd att Spotify inte finns till Bluesound, men det skall visst vara på G.
