I have tried to remain neutral in this little debate. But I think that the 7520 is a great DAC built by a real *******.

I've had the 7520 for probably around four months or so, and it really is far worth it's price range. It is really refined for the price and will easily rival $1000 comptetitors imo.
It is unfortunate that Beresford engaged in shameless tactics to garner sells, as this could have gotten the hype without it....now, it will only be appreciated by few rather than many. Hopefully that is a lesson to other manufacturers.
have you changed out the opamps on them yet? it gets even better when you do and i do agree with you that it easily rivals $1000 competitors especially when you upgrade the opamps. so far i had somewhat of a success with the OPA2132 and i received the LM4562NA's but had distortion problems with those so had to order another pair.
btw, i just created a new group for the Beresford 7520 owners. it is open to anyone who wants to join.
I <3 my Beresford TC-7520
u guys think the tc 7520 would be kinda overkill (as in spending too much) for low impedance headphones like the sennheiser hd 595, since it costs more than the headphone itself? or will it really make a noticeable difference in the 595s?
and how do u guys think the amp in the tc 7520 compare to the litte dot I+ amp or the little dot mkII? if i paired one of these up with the tc 7520 would that make a big difference in sound quality or would i have to spring for somethin bigger like the mkIII to make it worthwhile?
