AHB2 - "Revealed a whole new layer of chorused vocals, reverb trails and swirling ambient space"
"Playing the new Beck LP, the AHB2 revealed a whole new layer of chorused vocals, reverb trails and swirling ambient space. Pretty impressive."
"One of the highlights for me was hearing the Benchmark amp in my own system ... paired with my DAC2 HGC. I was pretty stunned by what I heard. I expected quiet, resolution & transparency. What I didn't expect was the way the system relaxed and allowed the music to just flow."

AHB2 - "Amazing clarity, but no over the top edginess"
"The Benchmark brings out nuances of reverb, quick percussive guitar attack with amazing clarity, but no over the top edginess..."
"The -130 dB noise/dynamic range just gets us that much closer to the live music signature that we yearn to hear from our beloved electronics."
