Benchmark Media DAC2DX Digital to Analogue Converter

The reference standard, two channel digital to analogue converter

Building on the success of the Benchmark DAC1 family was no mean feat, being the best selling digital to analogue converter on the market for audiophiles and studios engineers alike. The DAC2 family of digital audio converters manages to raise the bar further by offering lower noise, lower distortion and more accuracy.

Benchmark's DAC1 family of D/A converters have been the reference to which other converters have been compared. It is rare to find a converter review that does not draw comparisons to the DAC1. The DAC1 has been the best-selling 2-channel reference-quality converter and is in daily use at many of the finest recording studios and mastering rooms. DAC1 converters are also enjoyed by thousands of audiophiles.

But, Benchmark has just raised the bar ...

The DAC2 DX has the same performance of the DAC2 HGC but includes extra features making it compatible with professional studio use. The DX is well suited to the needs of professional users and includes an XLR AES digital input. The DAC2 DX is the only DAC2 model that includes dual stereo output buses. The analog output buses can be independently set to fixed or variable gain. The DAC2 DX is also the only DAC2 available with in a rack-mount version.

All inputs are fully isolated from interface jitter by Benchmark's new UltraLock2™ jitter attenuation system.

Internal digital processing and conversion is 32-bits, and includes 3.5 dB of headroom above 0 dBFS. Four balanced 32-bit D/A converters are summed together for each balanced output. The performance of the DAC2 DX exceeds the measurement limits of today's state-of-the art test equipment.
