For the money you can't do better than the Benchmark. I had one while my many times more expensive Bremen No.1 dac was in Switzerland for repairs and was amazed with the sound from this piece. My pro audio brother who laughs at audiophilia recomended it to me when it first came out. The beauty of this DAC is that it re-clocks the very poor signal from your carousel and sends pure jitter free sound to your preamp. You will be amazed with the resolution and clarity from this bargain priced piece. Oh yes, it will blow away the Sony. Unless you want to spend many thousands more, buy it and be thrilled!
