Benchmark and Martin Logan collaborated to put together a system that was focused on transparency. Each component was selected for its low noise, low distortion, and wide frequency response. The goal was to create one of the most transparent systems ever assembled. The signal chain included the new Benchmark DAC3 B D/A converter, the new Benchmark LA4 line amplifier, and a pair of AHB2 power amplifiers. The amplifiers were configured for monoblock operation and were driving the spectacular MartinLogan Impression ESL 11A electrostats. I hope that room 670 provided you with an opportunity to experience this remarkable system! I always enjoy seeing the look on people’s faces when they listen to a song they’ve heard a million times but are now able to hear a whole new layer of detail! I hope you had this opportunity in room 670.

"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.
