    Very nice Steve!

    Default Update with customer feedback on sound imporvement

    This is from the customer of the Ebony / gunmetal record puck

    "Hi, it has arrived and is working great.

    Sound stage has improved a lot, much more focused and detailed.

    I was using Stillpoint before this and your puck beats it hands down. I am using it on a Micro Seiki RX1500.

    Thanks for producing such a beautiful piece. It's a piece of art."
