  • "Best 24-bit Wireless Sound System... It fairly romps to the winning line because its horde of rivals lack the sonic ace Bluesound plays."

    Source/Read full review: SmartHouse Awards 2015 Magazine (Pg 56-57) Australia, Feb 2015

    "The Vault helped to eliminate my long held concerns that music I've paid for will get lost or destroyed in the event of a hard-drive failure and that backing up my collection would take forever. Thankfully uploads to the Vault's network attached storage were faster than uploads to cloud-based services."

    Source/Read full review: Big Picture Big Sound, December 2014 

    "For those with a NAS full of high-res music (or a plan to get one) and a penchant for serious audio quality, Bluesound’s system is worth every single penny."

    Source/Read full review: Stuff, November 2014, Bluesound multi-room music system review

    "Bluesound is one of the most musical multi-room systems we have heard. Its high-resolution capability is its strength, of course, but just as importantly it’s easy to set up and use. Multi-room audio has never sounded so good."

    Source/Read full review: What Hi-Fi?, October 2014, 2014 Product of the Year Award

    "Seamlessly digitizes my CD collection and networks with my iTunes library - ...Bluesound has a device called the Vault and this bad boy has a 2TB networked hard drive that rips my entire CD collection into high-quality CD lossless digital audio files. The Vault searches for the album art online and indexes everything so I can play albums and build playlists from my phone or tablet device with ease."

    Source/Read full review: Geekdad, September 2014, Top Reasons This GeekDad Loves His Bluesound HiFi Audio System 

    "Sure, you could whip together a similarly spec’d PC and software to do what the Vault does yourself, but you’d probably end up spending close to the Vault’s cost and still wouldn’t have the app integration and ease of multiroom playback.”

    Source/Read full review: Electronic House Daily, April 2014, Hands On: Bluesound Wireless Audiophile Music System

    "
    A product like the Bluesound Vault basically begs for an accounting by function in order to suss its value. We have a 1TB NAS, a CD ripper, a 24/192-capable server and streamer with Toslink output, a 24/192-capable DAC, a digital volume control, and a nice responsive app to control everything. While you may be able to get all of these individual pieces for less than the Vault's $999 asking price, you'd have lots of boxes and cables and power cords to contend with and you'd have to deal with making them all work together with just one app to match the way the Vault works. Good luck with that.

    For those people looking for a nice, simple, convenient and good-sounding one box/one app solution for ripping CDs, playing your ripped and downloaded files, streaming music from Internet radio, Rdio, Slacker Radio, and Qobuz, and purchasing music from HighResAudio, the Bluesound Vault has got your number and its one of one in today's' marketplace. Just add an iOS or Android device as a remote and you'll be rollin' in tunes in no time."
