Not sure, I'm no expert in vintage Hawaiian soda water and milk bottles as I know just enough to help me find what I'm looking for. Was the dairy located on Oahu or on the outer islands? There were more than 200 dairies Oahu alone from the early 1900's to 1950's. Might be a bottle of milk from Dairymen's Association which became Meadow Gold dairies in 1959. By the 1950's they began switching to milk cartons and milk bottles were phased out. It's interesting to come across a vintage soda water or milk bottle that was dug up recently but was made and in use in the 1920's. Hard to believe that they still exist after being buried for nearly 92 years.

It looks nice, but doesn't solid black look strange in your ears?

I'm curious though. What made you choose the Benchmark over say the Violectric V800?


Personally, I think colorations can be introduced via headphones or the amp but the DAC should be dead neutral.  I'm not saying the V800 is colored, but I'm not familiar with it.
 
I wanted a DAC with a good USB implementation and given Benchmark's reputation, I was pretty comfortable going for the Dac-1 USB.  It is quite cold and clinical but those details that it brings out make it worthwhile, IMO.
