Product Description

Benchmark DAC3 DX DAC is the third edition of the professional designed DAC for studio use. It employs an asynchronous USB audio interface, UltraLock2 jitter attenuation system, and reference quality recording for an outstandingly precise and detailed performance.

Reference Quality Monitoring

Benchmark DAC3 provides the absolute precision when it comes to stereo imaging, and delivers incredible musical details. With a advanced digital filter design and high-sample-rate asynchronous USB audio interface. It also fully isolates all inputs from jitter through exclusive UltraLock3 jitter attenuation system. Reference quality studio monitoring is achieved by the DAC3 making it ideal for professional applications.

Improved Performance

Benchmark's DAC 3 DX effectively removes noise, lowers distortion and improves accuracy. It offers an improved frequency response compared to the DAC 2, and active harmonic compensation. Compared to the original DAC1, the DAC 3 benefits from hybrid gain control, high-headroom DSP, and a 32-bit D/A conversion system to name a few. The DAC3 DX can also be used standalone as a headphone amplifier.

Easily Switchable and Digital Inputs

Native DSD conversion is supported by the DAC 3, over USB, coaxial and XLR digital inputs.This means you can experience seamless transitions between native DSD (DoP 1.1 format) and native PCM playback. The DAC 3 DX DAC offers faster switching between inputs as well as dual stereo output buses for those who only want to use digital inputs.
