"The ADC1 is expensive in comparison to typical mid-market converters such as those from RME, Lynx and Apogee (the Apogee Rosetta 200 is similarly priced but includes a stereo D-A stage as well, for example). However, I feel justified in suggesting that the ADC1 performs at a significantly higher level and compares more naturally with serious high-end products from the likes of Lavry, Prism Sound and dCS. In that context, the ADC1 represents substantial value for money, giving only a little away in terms of ultimate resolution."
"The Benchmark DAC1 impressed me so much that I felt compelled to own it. I suspect my bank manager will fear the same will apply to the ADC1. The long wait has certainly been worthwhile, as the ADC1 lives up to the excellent reputation established with the DAC1 and the pair form a perfect partnership. The ADC1 is highly recommended for serious applications."
