"This product stands tall in such elevated company – in sonic terms, it's a fine all-rounder that does plenty very well"


Featuring the same circuit-board and audio path as Benchmark's flagship DAC3 HGC model, the 3B is capable of the same excellent performance every time, and also retains the optional remote capabilities, programmable auto-on and 12v trigger function from it’s larger brother.

The DAC3B sheds some weight in terms of controls and I/O in comparison to the HGC. Volume control, analogue inputs, mute/polarity controls have all been eliminated along with the headphone amplifier circuit. The bare-bones format of the 3B model makes it a great choice for professional or studio users, and also serves as an excellent partner for existing owners of Benchmark’s LA4 line amplifier and HPA4 headphone amp models.
