"Had he come out 15 years ago, he'd've still had the opportunity of climbing the US charts; nowadays only soulless comet-singles make profit for a month, so David is destined to be relegated to an indie cult, but if I were him I wouldn't be too disappointed. Music won't be a living (and that's a shame, I know, David, you're in good company!), but he'll be remembered as one of the last poets on north-American soil to release high-quality music under every aspect. Undoubtedly being conscious of having written immortal songs is worth more than a truckful of bucks in the long run when your financial situation already sails on calm seas." - MARKUS GANZHERRLICH, RockMetalBands.com

About MQA... 

"I don't know how you did it, cause technically its not possible, but it sounds higher res than a CD - its awesome quality music too." - Fiona Joy, Blue Coast SACD/DSD recording artist, Grammy Winner

"The sound is incredible.  The loudspeakers vanish.  It sounds like you and the band are right here.  Very well done with the music and recording." - Herb B., High fidelity music listener

"How did you get it to sound so amazing in my funky little computer speakers?" - C.P., Music Lover hearing MQA encoded master tracks

"...the MQA sounds like you have more room to breathe,… It is just easier on the ears. In the low regions there is no distortion, even when I turn up the volume more than I would normally do and the high regions sound ‘calm’. What is even more important (I never met you in person, so maybe I am wrong), I think your voice is sounding more like the original in the MQA version." - Eric B., Audiophile

"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

NEW RELEASE
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!" - Online music lover

"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,

Positive Feedback Online PFO Brutus Award to

"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
