Benchmark Media Systems Releases Digital-Analogue Converter

Benchmark Media Systems has announced the release of the DAC1 USB - a 192-kHz, 24-bit, digital-to-analogue converter featuring 'Advanced USB Audio', the world's first native USB audio solution that supports 96-kHz, 24-bit audio.
Until now, special drivers were required for 24-bit word lengths and sample rates above 48-kHz. Benchmark's Advanced USB Audio provides high-resolution, bit-transparent playback just seconds after plugging into a computer's USB port for the first time. There is no software to install, and there are no system settings that need to be changed. Benchmark's Advanced USB Audio is compatible with Microsoft Windows Vista/XP/2000 and Mac OS X.
"The ground-breaking performance and elegant simplicity of Benchmark's Advanced USB Audio technology is the ideal addition to the DAC1's jitter-immune UltraLock system", noted John Siau, Director of Engineering at Benchmark Media Systems. "We conducted stringent audio-quality tests on four different operating systems using a variety of audio playback applications. Our system delivers stunning performance without the compromises normally associated with computer-based audio playback."
"The DAC1 USB is the only PC audio interface device that is fully satisfactory; in terms of bit-accuracy, sample-rate, and word-length performance", added Allen Burdick, President of Benchmark Media Systems. "It's intuitive, it's easy - it's USB audio done right."
The new DAC1 USB also includes high-current output drivers that can be configured to mute upon headphone insertion. The classic DAC1, which does not include the USB option and special high-current drivers, is still available. Both options are available in the silver, black, and, black rack-mountable chassis.
