High-Resolution Playback Begins with an External D/A Converter
Upgrade to an external Benchmark DAC and experience the full capabilities of high-resolution audio.
Sonically-Neutral Studio Monitoring
Benchmark converters are designed to be sonically neutral. This sonic transparency is absolutely essential in the studio monitoring chain.
Benchmark converters have become a standard fixture in many of the world's finest studios.
Bring the Studio into Your Living Room
When Benchmark's professional converters are used in hi-fi applications, studio-quality sound can be enjoyed in a home environment. Enjoy pure music without any coloration from the electronics. Hear the music exactly the way it was heard in the studio, and exactly the way the artists intended.
Discover the natural, uncolored, analog sound of Benchmark converters.
Sit in the Performance Space
Transparent sound can go beyond replicating the studio experience. Recordings that have been produced with a natural and unprocessed sound can transport you to the performance space. Close your eyes and get ready to be transported!
The experience of "being there" can only happen when the entire audio chain is selected for maximum transparency.
Benchmark DAC3 Product Family
Each member of the DAC3 converter family is sonically identical, and they share identical performance specifications. Each model is built on the same circuit board, but the higher-priced models add additional features.
