Review of Benchmark DAC1/AKG K701 System

Verdict:

For a normal person $2K for a headphone setup is a total rip-off (since, to be quite honest, the $15 Panasonics connected to the laptop, do an ok job of portraying the essentials of the music)… but by Audiophile standards, the BA setup is an amazing bargain.. especially when you consider that a $500 pair of headphones will easily rival the sound quality of a $5K floorstander…

If you are an audiophile on a tight budget and/or with a tight space, you really should consider a Headphone setup… Even if you are a planar lover, you can get a nice pair of Electrostatic Earspeakers for less the $500… Just try getting a pair of new Electrostatic Towers for anywhere near that price! In fact, even if you already have an expensive reference system, I’d suggest auditioning several Headphone/Amp combos… as you might be shocked at how good they can sound…
