"In your work I have been amazed by the presence and intimacy of your voice that creates a closeness and a bond that is impossible not to stop and listen to the lyrics. Congratulations also for the lyrics that I would define not stories but single emotions and moods (clearly yours, but that each one can share), in one word poems. In the end I do not know if I could explain what I felt; I simply felt emotions, desire to understand and share your own emotions." - Anonymous Hi-Res Listener

"I don't know how you did it, cause technically its not possible, but it sounds higher res than a CD - it's awesome quality music too." - Fiona Joy, Blue Coast SACD/DSD recording artist, Grammy Winner
PS Audio ~ Sonoma Master Series
"Bought and listened to the album “One”. Have about 40 albums with hi-res stores (from 96 kHz to DSD128), but this sound never met. It’s incredibly clean, the background is blacker than black. Musical instruments are precise, clear, but not sharp, no porridge, no noise, no haste, no bloated confusing scenes and confusion. This album has a special, unique atmosphere. This amazing adventure. Bravo!"

"In addition, I award David Elias a 2005 Brutus for the brilliant work that he's done with DSD in 2003 and 2005 on his exceptional recordings, 'The Window' and 'Crossing'. If you haven't treated yourself to these two exceptional recordings, you're missing what DSD can do with well recorded sources. Not only that, but David writes terrific music!" - Dr. David W. Robinson, Editor in Chief,
"In both your works ['Live in San Gregorio', 'Crossing'] I have been amazed by the presence and intimacy of your voice that creates a closeness and a bond that is impossible not to stop and listen to the lyrics. Congratulations also for the lyrics that I would define not stories but single emotions and moods (clearly yours, but that each one can share), in one word poems. In the end I do not know if I could explain what I felt; I simply felt emotions, desire to understand and share your own emotions." - Italian Film and HiFi Professional
