DAC2 Review - Paul Rigby, The Audiophile Man

DAC2 Review - Paul Rigby, The Audiophile Man

by Benchmark Media Systems June 08, 2016

DAC2 - "Taking the DAC1 ... and improving upon it"

Benchmark DAC2 HGC"I remember writing up a large group test, for a national UK Hi-Fi magazine, several years back, on DACs. I’d never heard of Benchmark before but the DAC1 trounced all of the other DACs on test to win the crown for that test. I was more than impressed and vowed to keep an eye on the brand from that day forward."

"Benchmark says that this, the latest iteration in the range, is superior in terms of sound quality to the DAC1."

"Immediately, right from the off, I was seriously impressed with the DAC2."

AHB2 Review - Paul Rigby, The Audiophile Man

AHB2 Review - Paul Rigby, The Audiophile Man

by Benchmark Media Systems June 01, 2016

AHB2 - "The perfect heart to any hifi"

"Neat in construction, busy in terms of features and small in stature, the AHB2 is quite remarkable in how it goes about its business of delivering music. I’ve seldom heard such a balanced, easy on the ear power amplifier as this that also provides tonal accuracy plus an attractive space in the midrange. The AHB2 would be an ideal fulcrum to any hi-fi system, acting as the heart around which you can build up your hi-fi chain. It’s dependable and rock solid. The perfect heart to any hifi."

SMS1 Review - Paul Rigby, The Audiophile Man

SMS1 Review - Paul Rigby, The Audiophile Man

by Benchmark Media Systems June 01, 2016

SMS1 - "Airy mids, confident and powerful bass, spacious soundstage"

"I was impressed by the broad nature of the SMS1 soundstage. Clarinets and strings had a beautifully resonant aspect, letting the ear know that all of these instruments had a specific character. Another feature of the soundstage was the piano’s ability to make itself heard." 

"The space and air around the midrange helps these speakers to tackle even the most complex of arrangements while the allied meaty bass means that they will be a good performer within any genre of music."
