Three days before the official launch, the DC Hi-Fi Group got a sneak preview of Benchmark new DAC3 HGC D/A converter!
The group members took turns listening to the DAC3 using a variety of headphones. Several members brought their favorite headphones and they got to try them with the new DAC3 HGC. This is the first product to ship with the new ES9028PRO D/A converter. The DAC3 HGC received many compliments from the members.
John Gatski had the following comments:
"Via headphones I definitely could hear more space around the instruments and an increased precision in transients — like cymbals and upper-register piano notes."
"In terms of new functions, the DAC3 switches a lot faster between inputs, and gone is that audibly phasy transition when you initially switch between two digital sources."
