The DAC2 series has higher performance and many more features. The DAC1 is designed for maximum transparency and is well suited for critical playback in studio control rooms and in mastering rooms. A compact and rugged enclosure makes the DAC1 an excellent choice for location recording, broadcast facilities, and mobile trucks. Audio engineers rely of the accurate, uncolored, and precise sound of Benchmark DAC1 converters. The DAC1 is free from digital artifacts and its analog sound eliminates the fatigue that is caused by many digital devices.

The DAC2 series has higher performance and many more features. The performance of the two units is identical. Most major components are made in USA. Audio engineers rely of the accurate, uncolored, and precise sound of Benchmark DAC1 converters. The DAC1 is free from digital artifacts and its analog sound eliminates the fatigue that is caused by many digital devices.
Audiophiles have also discovered the smooth and detailed sound of the DAC1, and it has become a centerpiece in may home listening rooms. Jitter presents a major problem to most D-to-A converters. Jitter is a type of clock error that, if not properly addressed, can cause the D-to-A to misfire. The result of these misfires is a non-musical, digital distortion. Many modern and expensive converters suffer from severe jitter-induced distortion.
This clock-recovery topology outperforms even the most well-designed two-stage PLL designs. The bottom line is this: Benchmark converters will consistently and faithfully deliver truthful audio with no jitter-induced artifacts, no matter what variables are present. This USB interface is completely bit-transparent. As a native device, there are no drivers or other invasive software required to install or configure.
It is very important to have a bit USB path, even for bit playback, because certain computer-related functions can increase bit audio to 24 bits.
Truncating digital audio causes severe, non-musical digital distortion. Benchmark cables are designed for durability and transparency, and most are manufactured in the USA. Our optical cables are manufactured in Canada. Two units can be mounted side-by-side in a 1-RU tray.

The coaxial information on media players, media inputs on the DAC1 HDR are designed to servers, operating systems, and audio- accept either type of signal. TIP: If the DAC1 HDR is being used in a critical signal chain such as a broadcast facility or theater the headphone mute switch should be defeated using the internal jumpers. But, long un-balanced cables to VAC. At , the DAC1 HDR will will generally suffer from hum problems operate normally over a range of to due to ground loops. The gain access to the jumpers.
