  "SFX is the best thing to come along here for quite a while.  We were initially concerned about the reliability of our computer system, as we currently don't have a redundant backup system, but those fears were put to bed by a complete run of a pretty sound-intensive show without a single crash.  This is the kind of rock-solid performance that we were hoping for but not expecting." - Bob Beck

"I like the software, it did what I expected, and is easy to use.  A good
product I'd buy again.  Perfect for having untrained operators run complicated sound playback." -  Darryl Waskow

"SFX is the only digital audio playback system I've worked with that gives me both the flexibility I need to create complex soundscapes and the programming speed required to keep up with the demands of a rigorous technical rehearsal process."  - Mark Bennett

"SFX has revolutionized our theatre sound capability. " - John Jones
