TC Electronic BMC 2
The TC Electronic BMC 2 is a high resolution digital monitor controller featuring TC’s patented anti-jitter technology ported from their flagship System 6000 system.
Bit-transparent when set to 0 (which ours usually is, preferring to use the analogue control on the Benchmark DAC 1 when we need to change the level) it also allows you to set reference level. This, combined with the detented control on the Benchmark means we always know what volume we’re listening at: essential for getting loudness right.
The BMC 2 also serves as DAC for our Avantone Mixcube. It’s not nearly as accomplished as the Benchmark, but given the purpose of the Mixcube (seeing how it will sound on a low-rent consumer system), that works out just fine.
