How it Works - 3 Easy Steps:

  1. Order the DAC3 of your choice from benchmarkmedia.com, we will charge the full price of the DAC3 when we ship (free ground shipping).
  2. You must ship your used DAC1 within 7 days after receiving your new DAC3 (write your order number on the outside of the package, insure your return shipment, and use a carrier that provides tracking).
  3. Email your order number and tracking number to: sales@benchmarkmedia.com

What we will do:

  1. When your trade-in arrives at Benchmark we will verify that it is working and in good condition (allow 1 business day for evaluation).
  2. When we accept your trade-in, we will issue a refund on your credit card for the trade-in amount (allow 1 additional business day).

What if I decide to keep my existing DAC1 and my new DAC3?

Want to keep your old DAC1 and set up a second room?

If you decide to keep both products, no further action is required. Your trade-in will automatically be canceled if you do not ship your trade-in within 7 days after receiving your DAC3

What happens if Benchmark rejects my trade-in?

  • In the rare case that we reject your trade-in, we will return your D/A at our expense.
  • You may then keep your DAC3 or return it in like-new condition for a full refund.
  • To receive a refund, your DAC3 must be returned within 30 days of your purchase or within 7 days after you receive the return of your rejected trade-in (whichever comes last).
  • You must call 1-800-262-4675 or 1-315-437-6300 to request an RMA# to return the DAC3.
  • Shipments should be properly packed, insured and trackable.
