    McIntosh MHA-100 headphone amplifier review

    4500 dollars, are you kidding me, for a headphone amp? Why would anyone spend that kind of money?   I started my journey into the world of headphones with the goal of putting together a system to maximize that elusive price vs. performance ratio curve.  Given the lack of local high-end stores...

    Benchmark DAC1 - which input to use?

    I just got the DAC which I bought in a hurry and didn't notice has no usb input... now I don't know if there's a way to use it without jitter as it has no asynchronous usb input, only xlr, coaxial, and optical digital inputs. Which is a better option and how can I connect to a computer with...

    Why so little info on Transports?

    I have read papers where asynchronous reclocking in a DAC actually adds jitter. So I don't buy the "this DAC is immune to jitter" line. With anything in the audio chain there is a good budget solution except a low jitter SDIF source. There are few recommendations. Most info on CDP's center on...

    Is the Benchmark DAC1 still a good buy?

    I am thinking about getting one. It's an older unit, so I am not sure how outdated it is. Still worth it, especially used?
