    The 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.

    I haven't heard from them in years. They got rid of their good ad agency. I thought they went out of business. I guess not.

    I've heard some Bel Canto products in the last year that have impressed the crap out of me.

    They have always had a pretty impressive product line, but they seemingly dropped off the face of the Earth as far as press goes.
