A new front-panel option for the Benchmark DAC1 without rack-mount ears and with a bright aluminum finish is now available. This option better positions the DAC1 for the home audiophile and desktop recording markets.
"Numerous users have requested a version of the DAC1 without the rack mount ears," said Allen Burdick, President of Benchmark Media. "This option allows them to place the DAC1 comfortably next to a computer or in a home entertainment center."
The original black faceplate is still available for fixed rack-mount system installation. Mount the DAC1 with a second DAC1, a blank panel, or other half-wide Benchmark products such as the new ADC1. The price of the DAC1 remains the same with either front panel - $975
The Benchmark DAC1 has unprecedented popularity both in recording studios and in home music systems. Stereophile Magazine named the DAC1 "Product of the Year" for 2004. The DAC1 has received industry-wide critical praise for its ground-breaking performance. Top mastering and recording engineers have incorporated the DAC1 in their equipment chains because of its faithful playback ability. Michael Wagener, recording engineer for Ozzy Osbourne, Metallica, and Janet Jackson says, "The DAC1 lets me hear what's really going on in my mix."
