moray james Posted June 28, 2017 Share Posted June 28, 2017 First time I ever bought an amplifier without an audition but I have a very good feeling about this one. The Benchmark Audio AHB2. This is actually a very hot-rod version of an amp I have used a lot, the Quad 405. The AHB2 has a better balance bridge than does the Quad and it has multiple voltage rails to deliver lots of power in a compact package with the lowest distortion there is. Will arrive home to me on Friday this week. I also recently picked up a very fine Mertum non oversampling DAC which is so analog sounding it is astounding. My ability to listen into recordings is amazing with the Metrum and it will get very much better once the Benchmark is installed. Volume control is via a Tortuga light dependent resistor attinuator which is as quiet as it can be with one light actuated variable resistor in the signal path. This is the way to detail resolution and dynamics. Regards moray james. 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
