Nativ Sound Vita


Has anyone actually USED or does anyone OWN a Nativ Sound Vita???

Great looking product and occasionally they have promos that get the price down .. a Mac Mini might be cheaper but the Nativ is more attractive (to my eyes anyway) and I am looking for a music only product not something to surf the net or use for spreadsheets

thx!

I have to say never heard of it before but looks like a cool unit nice industrial design! I use and love an Auralic Aries Mini which does most of the same things if you want to avoid the Mac Mini route. Lots of other options as well Blue Sound is popular and the full Aries is nice as well.
i have a vita which i actually am about to sell (just got a new dac which has a built in streamer). it's pretty cool. sound wise, it bested my mac mini running audirvana. you can operate using touchscreen or remote, and an app is coming soon. very nice build quality.
Jond ... very little info on the Net except product info and release announcements.  Hard to believe none of the print or online audiophile sites have grabbed one for review.  The design is simple and beautiful and it SOUNDS (again in press releases) that it is operationally intuitive, has great support, an open OS and ability for Smart phone control.  All BIG pluses!!
nickolaspappas ... let me know if/when you decide to sell .. might be interested in the price is right.  I constantly get offers from Nativ with coupons to save $500 or more (one came today offering a free CD ripper with purchase)  thx!
I have one and the ripper.   Many software issues.  Does not do as they say IE will not play 256 DSD at all.  Crashes constantly.  The CD ripper, seldom recognizes the correct CD inserted and as the players does, lists tracks  out of sequence.  Too many problems to list  here, they say all will be "better" with next upgrade, we will see.  When it does play, sounds good, cannot give full review as it does not work as advertised.
Wow, that is not good ... Any idea if this problem exists with a large % of their production units??  So Nativs response has been there is nothing physically wrong with the hardware that all your issues are software related???
I have one.  I originally couldn't get my music to load on to it.  I have my music stored on my HTPC.  I tried using the DLNA option to stream it but it would never work with consistency.  It could have been my internet.  I then tried to use an external hard drive via usb to load my music onto the installed hard drive.  I probably did it 10 times and it crashed every single time.

After the most recent update, the problem has been solved and mine works great.  I don't have any DSD music so I can't speak to that.  

My biggest complaint is that, without an app, it really isn't all that convenient.  There is a remote but that requires you sitting close enough that you can read the screen.  Otherwise, you need to use the touch screen.  They are working on an app and have shown some samples of it.  Once that is finalized, it should be a great device.  

They have been fairly responsive to feedback and suggestions.  Their updates don't come fast enough though.

For me, it is not worth $1600.  But if you can pick one up for $750ish, I think they are a great deal considering the market for streamers these days.
What goes without saying is, it is GORGEOUS!!!  It really completes my two channel set up.
Jstbuch ... I agree on cost ... If I could find one in the $750 range I may give it a whirl ... Is it true you can only use the Nativ ripper to burn CDs to the HD or has there been any update to allow use of any USB drive??
