All-In-One Bel Canto Black EX Integrated Takes Care of Analog, High-Res Digital, and Streaming: U.S.A.-Made Integrated Amplifier Exemplifies Convenience, Plays with Reference-Grade Fidelity
Hassle-free convenience, analog and digital accessibility, near-limitless flexibility, wireless streaming, a built-in preamplifier and robust 180Wpc power amplifier, and reference-grade sonics: They're all part and parcel with the Roon-ready Bel Canto e1X Integrated amplifier. And did we mention this piece fits practically anywhere and doesn't require a friend to move around? Simply hook up your speakers and any source components, and you're good to go with a unit committed to engaging fidelity and optimal purity.
Featuring trickle-down technology from the company's flagship Black Series, e1X Integrated 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 Integrated 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.
Equally important, e1X Integrated 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 all-in-one entertainment hub that will take your music-enjoyment experiences to a higher plane.
