DAC1B 2 Channel D to A Converter description:

The Benchmark Audio DAC1B is a two-channel, 24-bit, 192-kHz Digital-to-Analog audio converter; essential equipment for mastering studios, high quality recording studios, high-end home audio systems, or anywhere un-colored digital playback is demanded.

The Benchmark Audio DAC1B is perhaps one of the more significant recent advances in digital audio conversion technology. It provides some of the finest analog conversion through 192-kHz and all sample rates playback with a 52-kHz analog bandwidth. The performance of the DAC1B is unrivaled. THD+N is an astonishing low -106 dB (0.0005%) measured at 0 dBFS, at any playback frequency, at any sample rate, with any degree of input jitter, and it just gets better from there.

Jitter free UltraLock technology is used in the Benchmark Audio DAC1. On the test bench, or at the end of 1000' of cable, the performance of the Benchmark Audio DAC1B remains the same. Additional features include auto-processing of pre-emphasized digital audio and our latest HPA-2 headphone amplifier technology. This technology features distortion levels of 0.0003% under load. The audio output levels may be controlled from the front panel by the same gain control that feeds the headphone amplifier or it may be preset to a precise level with multi-turn trims. The preset gain range is +10 dBu to +29 dBu at 0 dBFS.

The Benchmark Audio DAC1B - Winner of a PAR Excellence Award at the 2002 AES Convention, the Reviewers Pick Award from Pro Audio Review, and nominated for a Mix Magazine TEC Award.
