RE: *TERRA FIRMA* Rocks !!!...and is off the Richter...REVIEW ?!?!


I had no idea that this review was being written, and I certainly do not know the writer. I suspect he is an Australian client of Joe Rasmussen's. Vacuum State head office is in Switzerland, and that's where I am based, but Joe and I have been close friends for 30 years, and we have co-developped several breakthrough products, and the Terra Firma is the latest. On the Vacuum State website you can find the February 2009 Newsletter, which is devoted entirely to both the Terra Firma Lite and the Terra Firma Uberclock.
I repeat what Joe has said, that you won't believe what is said about it until you try it. When we were developping it, we could not believe that the extreme electronic changes we were making would have such an audible effect.
We started with our Level 5 reference master clock, already considered by some professionals to be the best sounding of all the after-market clocks, and we increased the already extreme filtering by a factor of 10, just as a hunch, and it sounded better. So we incresed it by another 10 times, expecting to rapidly find a maximum. But it didn't. It sounded better, and even better with another 10 times increase in filtering. We have increased the filtering to what we consider to be a practical limit, and still marvel at the result, because it is beyond any normal logic.
It was beyond belief, and I am glad that this reviewer on Digital Drive and another independent reviewer on the Hi-Rez forum are both very excited about the performance increase they have experienced. What else can I say?
