I have never heard anything about the TCC TC-7510, but it does share the same name as the Beresford TC-7510 like it stated. Something seems a little weird about it to me though, but it seems like a decent DAC with a built in headphone amp. I would personally go with something more well known though because it if it was a really great DAC I would expect to see more people using it due to it's fairly low price.

Here's a thread about this DAC.

Even if it has a built-in headphone amp, I could still buy a separate one to connect, right?

here's a thread started by the same guy on the beresford DAC
http://www.head-fi.org/forums/showthread.php?t=209849

personally if I was going to buy an upgraded DAC from what I currently have I'd probably give the Zhalou a try

Just an update.
My A700 came in the mail today, and man.. These things are HUGE.
Very comfortable, and I don't need the equalizer for the music to sound good.
Great recommendation.

Now.. I just need to find a perfect sound card.

They are huge but they are more comfortable than any other headphones in it's price range. Try wearing them at the library and watch how people begin staring at you constantly

Haha, I don't think I'll take these babies outside the house.
Anyway, I've been reading in the forums and the word 'burning in' popped up. Does that mean I have to wait for a while until I can blast the music to high?

No, it just means letting the sound settle in after being used for a long time. Kind of like breaking in a new pair of shoes till they feel really comfortable.

My Audiophile 192 arrived today. All I can say is.. Holy (^&!.
No static, NOTHING. Just music. Never going back to on-board.
Thanks for all the recommendations everyone. I'm quite happy with all the purchases I've made. But I'm a little curious.
Would the sound improve if I bought an external DAC?

Yes it would, depending on the external DAC you choose. The M-Audio Audiophile 192 is already a beast when it comes to sound cards and getting an external DAC would make it a very expensive transport. Be happy with what you have right now and when the time comes, you can always add an external DAC later.
