OWNED

***SOLD*** MODIFIED HiFiMAN HE-400

***SOLD*** MODIFIED NAD VISO HP-50


***SOLD*** BERESFORD BUSHMASTER MKII DAC/AMP - Very natural sounding 3D-sounding DAC. Headphone out only good for dynamic cans in my exp...not enough power for planars. A real hidden gem in the low-end pricing. May pick it up again. I guess this is as close to organic/natural as Wolfson ever got. Does not lose detail either. 10/10.
