Reviews:
 
John Darko, Digital Audio Review – “the Wyred4Sound Recovery seems to matter more than one’s chosen USB cable or playback software – a most effective antidote to digititus and therefore a 100% essential piece of the puzzle. For yours truly, when listening for pleasure, the Recovery must be part of the digital audio chain of command.“


“I noted the single most palpable uptick in music’s avidity and enthusiasm with Recovery interceding.... Removing the Recovery after a long listening session brought dialled down micro-dynamic inflection... In the Recovery’s absence, music came on a little flatter: micro-dynamics tamed, textures smoothed, timbres a little greyed out. Sometimes you don’t know what you’ve got till it’s gone.”

Stereophile's Audiostream – Greatest Bits rating

"The bass and the mid bass were better defined with the Recovery and more dynamic sounding. The midrange’s focus was sharper and appeared to move slightly forward in the soundstage compared to the sound with no Recovery. I felt that the highs had better definition that was probably helped by a perceived reduced noise floor. The soundstage appeared wider with the use of the Recovery providing a lager sonic presence to the sound. I was unable to find any negatives to attribute to the contribution the Recovery made to my... DAC; it just improved what I was hearing."



"This wonderfully expressive and involving recording seemed to be more harmonically rich listening to it with the Recovery. There was a greater sense of orchestral "bloom" with superior three-dimensionality to the sound. Low-level information was easier to identify with superior reproduction of instrumental textures."


"The Recovery improved these recordings with a relaxed presentation that let the music flow with no digital hardness. The Recovery just made the music more emotionally involving.

“I guess if I could only have one of these USB enhancement devices, I would select the Recovery USB Reclocker as it sounded the most neutral with the largest soundstage."

“So if you need an instant recovery, look no further. This little thing is so good, as it removes most of the digital artifacts that are audible in the digital USB HiFi chain. It not only removes some grain, it actually adds some analogue feeling! And as it at the same time adds (if you can add something that is not there in the first place…) some nice depth and space to the music, it´s a small box of wonder, that you really just have to have. Not only nice to have, but need to have. The price is low and the result is high, so please take a listen to the smallish black Recovery box. Your hifi system as well as your ears will thank you. This won´t get any better then this. Worldclass. Deux point.

More sparkle and more air. More depth and smooth sonics. More openness and more analogue sound. More umph and more relaxation, a more sexy sound (if a sound can be sexy - in my opinion it can!) and more toe movements.”


"With the W4S Recovery the sound is more relaxed... The depth is deeper and small sounds are waving more in front of your speakers and the piano is panned more to the right, meaning that the sound stage is clearly wider on this track. The live drumming cymbals are more vivid and you want to play louder with the RUR, probably because of the lack of distortion."

“The truly disturbing thing is that this affordable gizmo with wall-wart and throwaway generic short USB cable could make an audible improvement to begin with; and remain audible if less potent in a ghastly costlier context. It suggests that the USB pipeline for hifi is rustier than believed. Whilst companies like Merging Technologies propose Ethernet instead and others HDMI, those of us invested in USB must accept that for reasons not crystal to us non engineers (and apparently even bona fide IT engineers), well-executed fixes like Wyred4Sound's Recovery still matter. What calms this disturbance is that today's solution will only set you back $249!”
