Low priced alternative to Benchmark Dac1
Give the Beresford TC 7510 a ~150 bucks is a true bargain. Several of us A/B'd it against the benchmarh USB DAC1 and the benchmark just barely won out (at about 8x the price) -plus, at that price it comes with a digital cable!

I always thought it was a bad idea to have a TV in the bedroom ;) 
What's the best player or contender's under $1k?
Player? of what?My vote would be the clearaudio emotion/satisfy...with a decent cartridge it'll beat any cdp under 5k, hands down.For a cd player, looko for a rotel cd-1072 - a nice player with a great dac chip and also has hdcd decoding.b
