"DON’T BE FOOLED by the HPA4's diminutive dimensions, for beneath its stylish, touchscreen chassis Benchmark has packed in two completely separate components. And good though the line preamp element undoubtedly is, it’s the
headphone section, with its choice of 6.35mm stereo or four-pin balanced XLR connectors, that really impresses with a smooth signal delivery."
"While on the one hand it can rock out when it needs to – its prodigious output means it can give as much power as your headphones can take – its sheer impact, openness and vivacity is jaw-dropping. An immaculate all-analogue design, the aptly named Benchmark is both technically and sonically as good as it gets."

Theo uses a pair of AHB2 power amps in bridged mono (480 W into 6 Ohms) to drive a pair of Revel Ultima Salon2 loudspeakers ($20,000/pair). This is his reference amplifier-speaker combination.
