New Front Panel Option for Benchmark DAC1

DAC-1's got a face lift. Not really a new product but hey I think it looks sweet.

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

I lost hope about a year ago . . . which was still a year after they said it would be released. I like the fact they took the time to get it up to their standards, but they should of never annouced a release date so early. But hey, then again, the continued delays on the ADC-1 finally gave me enough time to save up for the AD16x. heh

I´m very tired too.

I´m looking for HEDD or another good AD.

My DAC1 will be without brother in this life. I think.

I like my black face DAC-1 too, but this new faceplate is aimed at the audiophile crowd isn't it? I believe he DAC-1 is fairly popular with them and being the fanatics they are, they probably have been requesting something that goes better with home decor. There's no doubt these rack ears would look pretty ugly in my living room!

Just thought everyone would like to know that the ADC1 is now shipping! The sales and marketing staff have been listening to them here all week, and it has all the uncolored and pristine sound that has made the DAC1 such a success. Personally, I am very pleased with the sound and I bought two of them for my location recordings!

Cheers,

Ah, finally! Good to hear, loving my DAC-1

I'm buying AD this week so I'd like to think the ADC is shipping, so I can have a mate for my DAC-1. I'm still dubious though. I talked to Benchmark back in January and they told me it was 2-3 weeks away back then!

Can any vendors confirm this?

Glad to hear it! I do apologize for the perceived spam-tactic announcement. I thought I was doing everyone a favor by letting them know, but I have been met with ridicule. Please accept my sincere apologies.

Cheers,
