Benchmark DAC 2 DX D/A Converter in excellent condition. This is a great sounding DAC with a very good built-in Headphone Amp that can also function as an excellent Pre-Amp. The HGA version of this DAC, the only difference being that the HGA has two Analog Inputs that the DX doesn't, was on the Stereophile A+ Recommended Components list. This is a great DAC/Preamp/Headphone Amp. See Specs Below. Shipping (within the continental USA) and Paypal fees included at asking price, otherwise, the seller pays for shipping and Paypal Fees. Additional Pictures will be posted.
