Benchmark Media Systems - February 25, 2014
"Few devices are consistently praised in the audiophile community. The Benchmark DAC1 is one of the chosen few."
"You'll have a hard time finding someone with critical feedback about that device."
"The DAC2 is an entirely new device. It leverages what is one of the world's highest-end DACs, the ESS ES9018, adding to it, among other things, custom jitter-reduction logic."
"It lives up to its Hybrid Gain Control name by implementing separate volume controls: digital for digital inputs; analog for analog inputs."
"In case you're wondering, the DAC2 reflects exceptional build quality."
