Benchmark Media DAC3L DA Converter
The DAC3 is the latest D/A converter from Benchmark. Following on from the DAC1 and DAC2, the DAC3 adheres to Benchmark’s brand philosophy of no-compromise, class leading design, offering performance revered by professional recording studios and enjoyed by discerning audiophiles alike.
The new DAC3 implements the ESS Technology ES9028PRO chip, achieving lower THD+N, 2nd and 3rd harmonic distortion compensation, improved power management, over sampling filters and, when combined with Benchmark’s UltraLock3™ technology, near instantaneous input switching and phase locked loop, with undetectable jitter. The improvements don’t stop there though, with greater dynamic range and a wider frequency response, the specifications eclipse those of the DAC2.
The DAC3 L model offers analogue pre amplifier inputs but removes the dual headphone amplifier found in the HGC. The DAC3 DX, removes the analogue pre amplifier section to accommodate an AES digital input but retains the dual headphone amplifier.
