I have not tried the Talisman, but bought the Destat about 2 months ago to replace the various versions of the Milty Zerostat (including v3) that I've had over the past 25 years. I simply believed that there had to be a better way to evenly discharge the static on my vinyl. I can only say that the Destat exceeded my expectations. It is quick, easy and really leaves the record with no discernible charge (using the very scientific method of holding the record close to one's face which is, believe it or not, very sensitive to sensing static on a record). Further, I have not experienced any discharge when I lift the stylus off of the record, which used to provide a nasty pop through the speakers on rare, but memorable occasions in the past. This product is expensive, but it really works and is now my favorite tweak. Todd the Vinyl Junkie has the best price on this baby, but probably not for long.
