  1. Benchmark ABH2 for sale. Black. Totally mint, no marks, scratches or dings. (The marks you can see on the top plate are carpet fluff). Comes with all boxes, manual, power lead etc. £2200 or £2350 with two Synergistic Orange (£155 each) fuses installed. I have the original fuses if you don't want the Synergistics, but I can't recommend them enough, they transform the amp adding naturalness, warmth and bigger bass. Price includes DHL insured next day delivery. UK only for now.

  2. Hello everyone My retirement hifi plans hadn't worked out as I imaged. Now that we are settled in Portugal the realities are different that the theoretical plans. My second system is surprisingly becoming the first system as I am spending more time listening to music on it and also because I love the sound of the P3ESRs in this room. And for the very first time I am listing to my Benchmark DAC 1 directly to the Quad 909. but I need to plug in my turntable and cassette deck. The DAC 1 does not have analogue inputs. (My impetuous ARC preamp purchase fell through.) So I have some decisions. Set up. Auralic Aries Mini streamer playing Tidal Hifi and ripped CDs on an Altair G1. Benchmark DAC1. Quad 909. Harbeth P3ESR. Michell t/t and a Dynavector P75 phonostage. The streaming sounds really great. Its not perfect but it has drive and great tone and is a joy to listen to. I prefer the Benchmark presentation than the Auralic Aries Mini/909 AND I prefer the Benchmark to the DAC in the Altair G1. Am thinking to keep the 909 and P3ESRs and just introduce a preamp somehow. Option 1. Keep the Benchmark DAC1 and buy a preamp - maybe a Schiit Freya because I can home demo it or find another ARC that I used to own. Option 2. Buy a Benchmark DAC 2 or 3 as they have analogue inputs. Am nervous about other DACs due to no home demo. Budget c €2000 prefer 2nd hand. I know that some people will say that a separate preamp is 'better' and others will say an integral preamp is 'better' but it would be good to hear some views that would put it in a musical context. I literally have a few weeks experience of listening to a DAC into power amps so I have no frame of reference and home demos apart from direct sellers is a no-go. Thanks

  4. Due to a whole system re-arrange, I no longer need a fully featured DAC/Pre Amplifier. I would be interested in a swap for a Rega Cursa/Maia or Exon deal, or just a straight sale. This is a great bit of kit, loads of inputs, really flexible and nice and compact as well! It has a pair of Balanced and Unbalanced outputs that can be used at the same time. As well as 1x Analogue Input, 3x Coaxial Digital Inputs, 1x Optical Digital Input 1x USB input as well as two headphone outputs too. It has internal jumpers for adjustable gain as well. It comes in the Black finish, with the Remote, Cables, Manual and Original Box/Packaging. I will get some photos up tonight. Looking for £550 + delivery Collection from Faringdon, Oxfordshire.
