Bottom Line:   
This DAC is a trial to see how good vintage DACs stack up against new highly rated DACs. I too compared it to the new Benchmark DAC and it simply blew it away...much more real sounding, bigger soundstage, more liquid, better realistic detail... just simply a far superior product.

Bottom Line:   
This DAC is simply one of the best ever produced. Comparing to things like the Benchmark DAC 1 it simply blows its performance out of the water despite being several years older.

The Air Reference is very "analogue" in it's sound and it's built to match it's vinyl counterpart.

From my experience it really makes the music feel alive and brings a huge soundstage to it. While comparing to modern DACs it feels a lot more reliable, both in bass and in the highs.
