The Benchmark DAC2 has all the specs I would ever want. However, I'm not a fan of the front plate. There are way too many LEDs (16 by my count). Looks like a spider's face with a bunch of little eyes. I don't care that the DAC2 is designed for "professionals"; the product manager for this unit should take a class in user interface design.
The previous DAC1 series looked much more refined and easy to use.
An obvious competitor is the Grace m903, which I think looks great.
anybody care to share any opinions on the Benchmark DAC2 vs the Grace m903? trying to decide on a DAC in their "class":
