    Wow!  I am impressed with this product.  I backed it in it's crowd-funding stage on Indiegogo and am glad that I did.  This product is now discontinued but they have several products that replace it with even more features (at a cost increase).  I will have the option to upgrade mine to the new feature set for $500 when available.  The company owners provide great support and are very visible.  They come to many trade shows.

     

    I often use the product just for listening to old recordings.  I am amazed at how well the pops and clicks are removed without bothering the underlying music.  The removal monitoring lets you listen to just what has been removed to make sure.  You can also change the aggressiveness of removal for yourself.

     

    The recording and metadata retrieval works very well and all of my audiophile friends ask me to help them with digitization of their prized vinyl.  The audiophiles that have seen this system at my house have all purchased one.  It is not the cheapest add-on, but it has made a big difference in my system.

     

    This product will also work with any other analog source such as cassettes, tape, FM radio, etc. It was interesting that it actually removed pops and clicks in real time from cassette recordings that i made in the 80s of old records!
