DAC2 HGC Silver description:

The DAC2 HGC Silver is Benchmark Media's new 2-channel D/A converter.  The DAC2 converter has lower noise, lower distortion, and improved accuracy when compared to Benchmark's outstanding DAC1 converter.  The DAC1 has become a reference standard in many of the finest recording studios and mastering rooms. The DAC2 defines a new reference. DAC2 converters deliver outstanding musical detail and precise stereo imaging.  They employ an advanced high-headroom digital filter design, and a new high-sample-rate Asynchronous USB Audio interface. 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 converter are summed together for each balanced output. The performance of the DAC2 exceeds the measurement limits of today's state-of-the art test equipment

All digital inputs on the DAC2 D support native DSD conversion. DoP 1.1 is automatically detected on all digital inputs, and the system seamlessly switches between native PCM and native DSD conversion. DoP 1.1 is supported by many media players, and DSD downloads are now available from several sources. All Benchmark converters are designed for maximum transparency. This transparency is absolutely essential in the studio monitoring chain. DAC2 converters are ideal for critical reference-quality professional systems.
