Don Murray

Recording Engineer, Producer, Guitarist

“Opus#1, by thebit, is a high resolution digital audio player that is long overdue in the consumer and professional audio marketplace. I am an audio engineer with over forty years of experience recording music from all genres of music. What has always been missing is a portable audio player that lets me hear my master mixes of songs with the same quality I recorded them. Opus#1 does this with playback specs of up to 24 bit, 192 kHz and superior frequency response. It’s a great sounding player with a beautiful design and a data storage capability of almost half a terabit! I recommend the Opus#1 hi-rez audio player to everyone, from audio professional to consumer who wants to hear music as they’ve never heard it before.”
