Phil Rees advanced music pcComputer Music reviews

One of our advanced studio computer systems was reviewed in the July 2005 issue of Computer Music magazine.

They gave the system a Performance award and rated it 10/10. Their verdict was:
"This is the quietest, best-designed PC we've ever seen, period".

Their review concluded: "This computer is simply superb. The build quality, including that of all the mods, is excellent. Inside, the cables are neatly tied and everything is engineered to provide the most efficient cooling possible. This, coupled with the extensive (and innovative) acoustic treatments, makes for a phenomenally quiet computer that's both powerful and unintrusive in the studio".

Martin Walker reviewed one of our advanced systems in the January 2005 issue of Sound On Sound magazine.

music PC reviewThis review can be read online.

In the summary, the machine was described thus:
"This Philip Rees PC is a luxury system from start to finish, featuring some of the best components available, and with lavish care and attention to detail throughout".

He concluded his review: "I'm extremely impressed by the high standard of engineering and build quality of this Phil Rees PC, its luxury case and fans, proprietary central airflow control system, quality RAM and drive cooling, and the attention to detail evident in features like the multi-boot install and bundled office suite. Whatever your views on Intel's Prescott processor range, this review system is an excellent advert for Phil Rees and his company".

Of our claim to produce 'astonishingly quiet machines', Martin Walker wrote: "I'll say right at the start that Phil has achieved his claim with flying colours".
