The Bel Canto C5i features an outstanding 115dB dynamic range and our proprietary low-noise D-to-A convertors are based on our award-winning DAC circuit design. The C5i Includes five digital inputs including RCA, TOSLINK and one 24/96 USB input. The analog section has one pair of line-level input RCAs and one pair of Phono MM inputs on RCAs. 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 1/4″ front-panel headphone jack, providing flexibility and control with a simple user interface, easy to read display and full remote control.

“For bookshelf audiophiles who like their separate components down to the individual power supply, Bel Canto's full range of modular matching half-size power amps, CD players, FM tuners and digital-to-analog converters (for your PC music) is a dream come true. Though they're about as small as '80s-era microsystems, these handmade-in-Minneapolis stackables deliver enough sound and power for speakers 10 times their size.”
