    Has anyone had any experience with Core Audio (Ryan Mintz)?

    Or, has anyone had any good experiences, with either product quality, or customer service?

    I purchased a server from him over a year ago.
    For the limited amount of time I have been able to listen to it,
    it has displayed no real sound quality difference compared to a stock Mac mini.

    After hundreds of emails, shipping the server and/or power supply back and forth, and exchanging it for several different units, none of them will run for an hour without crashing...

    Ryan has only made absurd claims, saying the warranty was void.

    Is this an isolated case?

    sorry this has happened to you. but really, how can anyone claim to make a computer "sound better"? i am sure a lot of "audiophile" terms were thrown around, but bits is bits at the end of the day. sorry, but "lower jitter" doesn't really fly around here. and from their website: "Eliminating noise into the ghz range significantly reduces noise available for foldover, which in turn eliminates quantization error caused by the power supply" - well i don't even know where to go with that.
