Benchmark Room at Capital Audio Fest 2017

Benchmark is excited to return to Capital Audio Fest this year for another awesome show! This year we have partnered with Martin Logan to showcase our AHB2 and DAC3s. You can hear the compact power the AHB2 is able to produce as each of the 5 AHB2 amplifiers will be driving a Martin Logan speaker as a monoblock. You will be immersed in the music hearing every detail while the 5.1 surrounds you and transports you back to the recording studio.

You are not going to want to miss this amazing 3 day event in our nations capital! 

"For the past 7 years, Show Organizer Gary Gill has produced an exciting high end audio show in the Washington DC area, offering the best in high end consumer specialty audio including new products and technologies that a few people who live and work in this high tech area have introduced. On November 3rd - 5th, the Capital Audiofest returns to the Rockville Hilton with a newly expanded and exciting show!

David and McKenzie Siau

David and McKenzie Siau

by John Siau July 29, 2022

"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.
