    Wrap Up – AXPONA 2016


    Benchmark booth outside Benchmark Room at AXPONA 2016

    "Pro and enthusiasts straddler Benchmark had a nice display just kiddy corner from the marketplace on the main floor. You can read all about our previous coverage of the real estate savvy AHB2 amp ($3k) [here] and our review of one of their delightfully detailed DACs [here]. Along with the hallway display, Benchmark had a surround sound setup featuring special mixes and one AHB2 per channel running in mono. The sonic tapestry was dynamic and far more lifelike than your average surround setup with individual instruments often isolated to a single channel. The result is more akin to a band playing all around you in well tempered home living room than a performance stage, where sound can come from haphazard directions. It was a very unique listening experience for an audio show and a must hear for any multichannel connoisseur."

    Rory and our winner from the AXPONA 2015 DAC giveaway at AXPONA 2016:

    DAC2 HGC - Silver


    Greg opted to apply the value of the DAC2 L toward a DAC2 HGC. His upgrade to the DAC2 HGC only cost him $300 - what a deal!


    At AXPONA 2016 we had the ultimate listening experience setup for all to enjoy the clarity and transparency of the DAC2 and AHB2! In the spacious Lakeshore B ballroom we had a stereo and surround demo featuring 3 Benchmark DAC2 DX digital to analog converters and 5 Benchmark AHB2 power amplifiers that powered 5 Revel Salon 2 full-range speakers.

    "Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends." - John 15:13

    David Paul Siau - June 25, 1983 - July 17, 2022

    McKenzie Joy Siau - December 30, 2020 - July 17, 2022

    On the evening of July 17, 2022, my oldest son David Paul Siau gave the ultimate sacrifice of love when he knowingly gave his life to save those he loved. He took three shots from a 12 gauge shotgun so that his wife, children and sister could be spared.

    David is survived by his wife Christy Siau and their two oldest children, ages 6 and 3. His 18-month old daughter McKenzie was killed within moments of David. I have no doubt that David and McKenzie entered into God’s glory hand in hand.

    My daughter-in-law Christy Siau was shot and nearly killed in the incident. We are grateful that she is now out of the hospital making a full recovery.

    In the end, my daughter Christina Siau fought the attacker with a knife and prevailed. She sustained many knife injuries and it is a miracle that she lived. She is now out of the hospital and making a full recovery.

    We ask your prayers for the healing of physical and emotional scars. We have been overwhelmed by the love people have shown to our family during this difficult time.
