HPA4 Award - "Best High-End Stereo Preamplifier" - Secrets of Home Theater and High Fidelity

Best High-End Stereo Preamplifier

Benchmark Media HPA4 Preamplifier

I found it to be an extremely neutral reference point that allowed me to hear more of what a connected speaker or headphone was actually doing and, in turn, how much my existing electronics were adding to the sound that I was hearing in my reviews."

- Carlo Lo Raso, Co-Editor, Secrets of Home Theater and High Fidelity
