AHB2 Award - "Special 20/20 Award" - EnjoytheMusic.com

October 01, 2015

AHB2 Award -

"Racking up award after award is the Benchmark Media AHB2 solid-state stereo power amplifier."

"For a relatively low price you get 100 wpc stereo @ 8 Ohms (380 watts bridged mono) and a stunning frequency response from a grand-shaking 0.1 Hz to hummingbird-like 200 kHz (+0/-3dB)."

"Using some super tweak circuitry and other modern bits, this tiny 11.04" wide by 3.88" tall and 9.34" deep amp weighs in at only 12.5 pounds!"

"Within his review, Enjoy the Music.com reviewer Greg Weaver says,

"Don't make the mistake of assuming that because of its realistic price, miniscule size, or its feather-like weight, that this is not a serious amplifier. To dismiss it with such a foolish and inaccurate assumption would be to your great loss! This little upstart will change the way you look at, and listen to, amplifiers from the first time you hear it. And while I don't really need another amplifier, I'm going to find a way to both placate my wife and work with the fine folks at Benchmark to give this little giant slayer a new home here in the Midwest."

... I can't imagine a higher recommendation, can you?"

System Review - DAC3, HPA4, AHB2 - Geoffrey Vanhouwaert, Alpha-Audio
System Review - DAC3, HPA4, AHB2 - Geoffrey Vanhouwaert, Alpha-Audio

April 08, 2020

"There are many things that come into play when putting together a hi-fi system, one of which is synergy."

"After the arrival of the Benchmark Media Systems AHB2, I immediately thought of the matching HPA4 that colleagues Jaap and Yung were very pleased with."

"The key question, of course, was whether the HPA4 would really provide an audible improvement."

"Well you bet! The synergy between preamp and power amplifier is nothing short of magical, not to mention the DAC3 B that I got from importer Helios for the occasion."

"Not only a few curtains disappear, the whole window is gone."

AHB2 Review - 10 Audio
AHB2 Review - 10 Audio "Perfect 10 Award"

March 15, 2020

"The Benchmark AHB2 is a very fine sounding, easy to live with, zero-maintenance power amplifier that has enough power for most systems. If more power is needed, two amplifiers configured for mono can provide it. The decision to purchase the review sample and make the Benchmark AHB2 a new, long term reference took over a month of listening and comparisons."

"The outstanding musicality of the Benchmark AHB2 takes some time to convince the listener of its wholly musical presentation. This subtle excellence assures long term satisfaction."

DAC3 wins DAC Shootout - Alpha-Audio.net

February 15, 2020

Alpha-Audio.net tested 10 DACs side-by-side. Only one received the "Alpha-Audio Approved" award. That DAC was the Benchmark DAC3.

"Are you looking for the best DAC (d/a converter) in the price range from 1500 euro to 2500 euro? That’s great! Because we’ve put ten beauties side by side. And we tested it live on camera for you."

"It was incredibly instructive to put so many converters side by side. We clearly hear differences - and the viewers could as well."

"One of the models we all agreed on is the benchmark DAC3. This is a delicious musical product. Virtually no coloring, nice stereo image and plenty of inputs."

DAC3 - Alpha-Audio Approved!
