Positive Feedback - VBH Review

"So here's the real-world test of the VBH-1 isolators, and based on my experience with Mark Schifter and Vera-Fi's products, I wouldn't have expected anything less: the PS Audio Stellar unit also was completely vibration-free, even at the dynamic peak of "Way Down Deep." Despite playing this "acid test" track for deep bass and challenging dynamics, the Stellar phono preamp was totally free from any mechanical vibrations transmitted from the Kallax's surface or from any airborne vibrations from the KLH Model Fives. Here's the part I wasn't completely expecting: the music from this demanding track was presented with an ease and effortlessness that enhanced its musical presentation in every way possible compared to my original evaluation. Jennifer Warnes' voice was more colorful and liquidly rendered, the already deep bass was even more controlled, and the track's nearly unrestrained dynamics seemed more emotionally powerful than ever before. I mean—and quite literally—damn! I've relistened to the entire album, and I probably should do an update to my original review to let the guys at Impex Records know how I really feel about their new reissue!"
