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!
Classical music fan and un-repentant box-swapper
