    Cover All the Analog and Digital Bases with the Roon-Reaady Bel Canto e1X: Loaded with Connectivity and Features, U.S.A.-Made DAC/Preamplifier Plays with Engrossing Sound

    Reign supreme in both the digital and analog domains with the Bel Canto e1X DAC/control preamplifier. Featuring trickle-down technology from the company's flagship Black Series, the Roon-ready device fully decodes MQA, supports up to DSD128 (via DoP) and 24-bit/384kHz (via Ethernet), and offers DLNA control via a free app. TIDAL, Qobuz, your own library, and other streaming services are just a touch away. A full suite of digital inputs – Toslink, AES, S/PDIF, USB-A – automatically give you up to 24-bit/192kHz as well as DSD64. An onboard MM/MC phono preamplifier, headphone amplifier, and subwoofer output confirm e1X is ready to handle nearly any system configuration while affording you a plethora of listening options.

    Based around Bel Canto's High Dynamic Resolution HDR-II core and high-speed Asynchronous Multi-Input Processor (AMiP) platform, e1X augments such reference-grade versatility with strikingly warm, dynamic, edge-free sound. The U.S.A.-made component extends the Minnesota-based manufacturer's reputation for crafting audiophile gear whose performance, features, and ability belie its compact footprint. Software-controlled trim, bass equalization, and subwoofer filter management also come standard. The presence of balanced XLR outputs further confirms the unit's commitment to engaging fidelity and optimal signal purity.

    Equally important, e1X arrives set up for modern needs and contemporary living. It's equally at home in spacious areas or tight confines, dedicated listening rooms or multi-purpose living spaces. Housed in a constrained-layer damped chassis replete with high-grade aluminum and simple, elegant digital display, this control center that will take your audio experiences to a higher plane
