BERESFORD CAIMAN DRIVER
A fine performer It’s also a fine performer. Reply October 21, Mike. The possible drawback of these is that they take a finite time to operate when a track opens rapidly from ‘digital black’, but Beresford has ingeniously included enough time delay to allow for this, so you don’t actually miss any music it would only be a milli-second or two, but the audible result can be an annoying click. Hi Tim, I would rather recommend the headphone outs out of the Dr. There has been much debate as to how much damage is done to the audio signal by the various digital and analogue filtering networks that are found in a DAC design, and whether filters contribute to grainy high frequencies.

Cambridge Audio and Musical Fidelity were about to launch DACs for the budget hifi market that would later become benchmarks in their class.
Awesome Jerry you know great kit when you hear it excellent vfm. Hi Andy deffo worth looking at newer models. In order to correct timing and data speed transfer errors the TC uses a asynchronous buffer with a length of bits to take care of time period related errors. Any thoughts on how this stacks up against Burson HAD or other higher-end units? After languishing since the mids, the consumer DAC market began to blossom again in late Here is a link to the review: There has been much debate as to how much damage is done to the audio signal by the various digital and analogue filtering networks that are found in a DAC design, and whether filters contribute to grainy high frequencies.

Now here is the important thing would i recommend this dac bearing in mind just over a couple hundred quid isnt cheap you bet your pink dyed hoopla socks i would what about replacing an older bushmaster dac which is what i did yes there is improvements across the board and a positive upgrade more functions and looks awesome in black.
Vocalists sound expressive, and the Caiman’s rhythmically adept too. Against Mildly disappointing rhythmic skills Not as good as the best.

A generous signal headroom overhead, low noise circuitry, and high output current ability are beresflrd factors that make the headphone output on the Caiman SEG a major talking point with existing owners.
Ryan of Maverick Audio must surely concede some similarity in the his products feature set when sat next to the Beresford. The ALPA player is not very stable, and sometimes the data transfer has hiccups.
Still I can easily see how the Music Streamers would be and attractive option for someone who can use one. Outputs are generous too, with the obvious fixed-level line output joined by a variable output controlled by brresford traditional volume control behind the front-panel knob and a headphone output.

Since you’ve reviewed all 3 was wondering if you could help me with part of the decision making process….
These simple design steps deliver a more entertaining natural and warm sounding analogue playback that revealing and High-End audio amplifiers and speakers would greatly benefit from.
Picture a man on the horizon waving furiously. I would rather recommend the headphone outs out of the Dr. Im sorely temped to buy a seg-just for the hell of it.
For Good spec sturdy build and inoffensive looks open, detailed and fluent sound. Follow TechRadar Reviews on Twitter: The result is a crystal clear and warm analogue sound with excellent musical beresfofd.
Beresford TC Review
Type – Digital to Analogue Converter. The Caiman SEG uses a crystal controlled receiver with one of the lowest jitter performances possible from a receiver chip.
The least successful track being the large-scale orchestral Rachmaninov, which has some very densely layered sounds to it, while by contrast, Dick Hyman’s lively solo piano renditions of Fats Waller tunes danced along most enjoyably. Haven’t tried the Ruby2.
