Benchmark was founded in 1983 as the “Benchmark Sound Company”, a small operation working out of a garage in Garland, Texas. The founder, Allen H. Burdick, began by building very high-performance audio equipment to meet the specialised needs of television broadcast facilities. The company quickly grew and was incorporated as Benchmark Media Systems on March 5, 1985.
Since then, the company has been producing leading-edge, high-performance products to recording studios, home audiophiles, broadcasters, and sound reinforcement contractors and has received acclamation for its low distortion, wide bandwidth, and low-noise designs.
All Benchmark products are designed and built by audio enthusiasts who are passionate about the durability and build quality of every single product. Most of the company’s products are designed, assembled, tested, and shipped worldwide from their state of the art headquarters in Syracuse, NY, USA, where they have been located since 1985. This is to ensure that products meet rigid standards before distribution and will give you a lifetimes service.
The Benchmark name on an audio product is an assurance that the product has been designed to be sonically neutral and transparent. Benchmark is focused on building products that have an accurate impulse response, and it’s products produce minimal distortion or noise. The accurate impulse response is an indication of the company’s focus on maintaining an accurate phase response, as well as a very wide and flat frequency response. Transparency can be measured and defined by these parameters.
If you are looking for accurate, clean, and transparent audio equipment, you will undoubtedly enjoy Benchmark products.
