Bel Canto Dac 1.5 or Benchmark Dac 1 Usb

Trying to decide which of these dacs to buy. I would use either as a dac/digital preamp hooked up via balanced connection directly to my Bryston 3BST amp. I am not able to audition either dac so if anyone has any experience with either day or both please share your thoughts with me.

I find both units great, it depends on the musical tastes you have. Benchmark media have a 30 day trial, you should take advantage of this.
I agree completely with Nolitan, having heard both, albeit in different but "equally good" systems.

Have you checked with your local BC dealer to see if they have a demo you can try?
