DAC2 HGC Review - Rich Schmidt, Home Theater and High Fidelity

"The DAC2 does so many things, and does them so well, it's easy to recommend"

"As a headphone amp: I sampled the DAC2 with both Grado 325i's and Focal Spirit One cans. The DAC2 was more than capable of driving either of these and made them each sound their best."

"The Benchmark DAC2 HGC does so many things – I didn't even get to all of them – and does them so well, it's easy to recommend. Got an old amp and you need a preamp to make a system out of it? DAC2. Want a first class headphone amp? DAC2. Computer audio? Of course. It's not the least expensive option for any one of those but it might well be the most affordable when you compare to other solutions that are as versatile – if you can find any. The sound is sweet, engaging, and long on textural detail without fatigue. You should definitely check this DAC out."
