The bel canto C7R DAC Integrated Amplifier powers it all, digital, analog, computer, Phono MM and analog FM Tuner all in one cool running compact component. The C7R is built on the convenience of one component connecting your analog and digital source material, providing an uncompromised audio experience. The most complete integrated amplifier, Low jitter, low noise and power isolation delivers startling dynamics in your music.

Bel Canto’s e.One C7R DAC Integrated Receiver connects your Computer, CD transport, Turntable, Analog FM tuner, Cable box, Game console providing full control of your media through one component. Just add a pair of speakers and the listening room is open!

The Bel Canto C7R has an outstanding 115dB dynamic range and our proprietary low-noise D-to-A convertors are based on our award-winning DAC circuit. The high current amplifier is enhanced with our proprietary Reference power filter design. The C7R has five digital inputs; RCA, TOSLINK and 24/96 USB. The analog section has one pair of RCA and RCA MM Phono inputs. The Analog FM tuner features patented analog FM receiver architecture and superior RF performance that rejects interference using digital IF processing. Digital signal processing (DSP) allows precise pilot rejection, selectivity, and unmatched audio quality as the digital IF section operates at 24-bits.The core 24/192 D-to-A converters are based on our Two-Stage Master Reference Ultra-Clock™ circuitry ensuring that jitter from any source is reduced below the audible threshold.

The 24-bit digital volume control is completely transparent and accurate throughout the volume range. The engineering detail that Bel Canto is known for calls for custom 0.1% audio grade resistors, class-A output control circuitry, and low-noise power supply components. The heavy-gauge all-steel chassis design prevents mechanical resonance from compromising the audio signal quality. The stereo amplifier section is based on an elegant switching output stage that eliminates thermal distortion mechanisms caused by changes in operating temperature. The front panel features a single multifunction control knob that selects inputs and volume level for the main outputs and ¼” front-panel headphone jack, providing flexibility and control with a simple user interface, easy to read full display and full remote control.

The bel canto CD3t transport provides the most direct digital path to your Digital to Analog converter. Enjoy your CD collection knowing the line between investment and quality of design is achieved with the CD3t. The reliable slot load mechanism accurately transfers the digital data through our custom high speed low jitter output drive electronics.

Bel Canto’s e.One CD3t plays your CD, CDR, CDRW collection with accuracy and simplicity. Connect to your DAC Control Center using AES/EBU XLR, SPDIF BNC (RCA adaptor included) for an accurate data transfer of 44.1kHz/ 16bit.

The CD3t features a high-reliability front panel slot-loading mechanism that provides easy load and disc removal. The drive mechanism enters an ultra-low power <0.5W sleep mode after one hour of no activity and awakes automatically when any button on the control panel or remote is pressed. Controls include six push-button controls on the front panel and a 3.5mm IR control input on the rear panel. There is a sharp bright 4- character display on the front panel that displays disc status that can be turned off with the remote. The remote has a comprehensive set of control features not available on the front panel controls and can operate other Bel Canto products.

The heavy-gauge all-steel chassis design prevents mechanical resonance from compromising the audio signal quality. The CD3t also features six push button controls, a four character display, and a slot-load CD mechanism on the front panel. The buttons on the front control panel track disc movement Forward or Back, Eject, Stop, Play and Pause. The CD3t also comes with a remote complete function control and rear panel features an IR connection to control the unit when place in a cabinet.

The bel canto REF500M MONO power amps drives your loudspeakers with an unprecedented level of sonic accuracy and power. The REF500M delivers 121dB dynamic range and 250 watts into 8 ohms, doubling to 500 watts into 4 ohms. The combination of fullyregulated switch-mode power supplies and analog control circuitry brings incredible dynamic expression to your music.

Bel Canto’s e.One switching amplification imparts many advantages including low noise, low heat and low power consumption. It’s also the most direct way to convert electrical power into music. The entire music signal is delivered to the loudspeaker efficiently without excess energy wasted as heat. The compact, heavy gauge, all-steel chassis prevents micro-phonic noise from corrupting the audio signal and brings music to life with extraordinary nuance and power.

The REF500M custom power input stage includes high speed, low noise rectifiers and large storage and filter capacitors that substantially increase energy storage, significantly lowering noise while reducing sensitivity to power line fluctuations. The custom input stage uses the latest advanced amplifiers and passive components including: Caddock resistors, Solid Electrolytic ultra-low ESR decoupling capacitors and low noise regulated power supplies. The combination of Bel Canto’s input and power circuitry ensures the full dynamic expression in your music is experienced.

The Mono-Bloc design of a pair of REF500M amplifiers allows great flexibility in placement, either near your source components or your loudspeakers. The total isolation of each channel also results in the holographic stereo imaging and separation. The elegant switching output stage eliminates thermal distortion mechanisms caused by changes in operating temperature. You’ll experience breathtaking truth in signal amplification that is life-like in its dynamic, detail and resolution.

Bel Canto music products are fine instruments that deliver music’s subtle detail, impact and beauty. Green, low-heat, ultra-efficient heavily regulated switch-mode power supplies and switching output stage make possible Bel Canto’s eco-friendly compact designs that are sleek enough to flatter any room; place two Bel Canto e.One products in the space formerly occupied by a large, hot-running, inefficient class-A design!
