    Default Beresford Bushmaster DAC Reviews

    Mine arrived today, so I thought I'd kick off a review thread.

    I know that StanDACs need to run in, but just out of the box it's a stunner!

    Stereo focus and fine detail is a step-up from what I have heard before - from StanDACs or anything else for that matter.

    Delicacy, fine detail, articulation - all exemplary.

    Blimey, Stan - at first listen, it's a stonker!

    As we have two threads with the exact same name, could we call this something different. Maybe Beresford Busmaster DAC - Review or something similar would be more appropriate?

    I did promise to raise the stakes as far as DAC musical progression goes, and make a mini statement with the Bushmaster .

    Stunner compared to what though? For a review there has to be a benchmark from which to judge the performance of the DAC surely? Please
