bel canto e1x integrated amplifier

The slimline Bel Canto e1X amplifier is a combined integrated amplifier, DAC, and network streamer.

Based around cool running Class D technology that Bel Canto are now famous for, it is capable of a genuine 180wpc into 8ohms (250wpc into 4ohms), with an extremely low distortion rate of 0.001% and damping factor of over 500. It's capabilities and quality are helped by its HDR Core technology - comprising of ultra-low-noise master clocks, advanced asynchronous interfaces, and dual-mode low-noise high efficiency power supplies.

The front panel is extremely simple. A central display showing input and volume (which can be turned off) The low impedance, high output headphone amplifier provides 4.5Vrms output from its 6.3mm headphone socket, ideal for high-end headphone listening.

 

The dual-function volume control also chooses input - a simple press allows you to cycle through inputs. A remote control is provided for all amplifier functions.

All this is built into a solid aluminium case using constrained layer damping technology (usually seen in loudspeaker cabinet construction) in order to suppress vibration as much as possible.

The digital input section of the back panel supports coaxial and optical inputs, as well as balanced AES XLR, and both Type A and Type B USB inputs. An ethernet connection connects to your network for DLNA streaming and SEEK app control.

 

The analogue section has three analogue RCA inputs - one of these is a dedicated, fully configurable input for the connection of a high quality, MM or MC cartridge equipped turntable. A pair of RCA analogue outputs support additional amplification, or the addition of a subwoofer or two, which are fully configurable with the onboard digital bass management

 

A set of high quality WBT Nextgen speaker terminals provide a firm connection for spade or banana plugs.
