Conclusion about the Channel D Pure Music High Resolution Music Server Software
At $129, Pure Music is a no-brainer purchase for anyone who uses a Mac as her or his computer music server. It offers every feature you could possibly want and gives you complete control over how all those features operate (including the ability to turn them off). On top of that, Pure Music subtly but undeniably improves sound quality, with increased clarity and reduction of digital glare. The only disadvantage of the software I can see is that it is not available to those who use Windows as their music server OS. In fact, I don't know of any comparable products for Windows. If you don't have a Mac already, a brand new Mac Mini will run you an additional $600. This is a more substantial purchase, but still a lot less than many audio components in our systems. If you are a Mac user, you should already be downloading the free 15-day trial of Pure Music. I will be very surprised if you don't decide to keep it.
