***SOLD*** MODIFIED HiFiMAN HE-400
***SOLD*** MODIFIED NAD VISO HP-50
***SOLD*** 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 WM8716 DAC chip. Does not lose detail either. Popping/noise issues on anything above 16/44 on some hardware/software combos....but even at that....Redbook 16/44 flawless... 10/10 as it performs @ 4x its price ! This Beresford guy knows how to sqeeze out every last drop of potential in hardware.
