AHB2 Review - Gary Galo, AudioXpress

"Our main cover article is an in-depth review of the Benchmark AHB2 Stereo Power Amplifier by Gary Galo. If you are interested in amplifiers, this review will clearly explain why you should listen to this one. Benchmark's new AHB2 stereo power amplifier uses feed-forward error-correction technology patented by THX that virtually eliminates crossover distortion. Designed in response to the needs of high-resolution audio sources, each channel of the AHB2 actually has two amplifiers - the main bi-polar Class-AB amplifier for driving the loudspeakers, and a low-power error-correction amplifier with ultra-low distortion levels. Gary spent some time with it and explains all the reasons why he was impressed. Very impressed."
