***TRADED*** BERESFORD BUSHMASTER MKII DAC/AMP - Very natural sounding/organic 3D DAC. Headphone out only good for dynamic cans in my experience.....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 with the overlooked/obscure Wolfson WM8524 DAC chip. Popping/noise issues on anything above 16/44 on some hardware/software combos though....
