Other Notes: "Given the problems I had using the Benchmark to play back 16-bit files from my PowerBook and from my PC via the USB connection, this inevitably will have to be a two-part review. But used via USB from my Mac mini and from its conventional data inputs, the DAC1 USB is a superb-sounding device. Its balance is slightly more forward than the twice-the-price Bel Canto DAC3, but that will make it a better choice for systems in which the DAC3 sounds too laid-back. And the fact that it has an excellent-sounding headphone output with two choices of maximum gain makes it a bargain. Very highly recommended." -Stereophile
