Compact Marvel Plays Music with Commanding Openness, Definition, and Richness: Bel Canto e.One C5i Integrated Amplifier Includes 24-Bit USB DAC, MM Phono Preamplifier, and Headphone Amp

How can an integrated amplifier that's so compact, and so simple-looking, sound as intoxicatingly rich, present, and vibrant as the Bel Canto e.One C5i? It all has to do with the Minneapolis-based manufacturer's command of engineering, parts, and design. Featuring Bel Canto's High-Dynamic Resolution Core – a technology comprised of ultra-low-noise master clocks, advanced asynchronous interfaces, and dual-mode low-noise, high-efficiency power supplies – C5i plays with wowing levels of openness, detail, and definition. Its 60Wpc (into eight ohms) output doesn't slouch, either. And the U.S.A.-made C5i runs cool and efficient, making it ideal for space-challenged rooms and listeners who don't want the bulk or heat of larger amps.

Want to spin vinyl LPs? Who doesn't – and with C5i, you can, courtesy of its built-in MM phono preamplifier. A dedicated, low-impedance, high-output headphone amplifier drives almost any 'phone on the planet, while minimalist aesthetics – distinguished by a simple, dual-functioning knob and four-digit digital display that access all basic functions – nearly disguise the fact it also includes a 24-bit/96kHz USB DAC for computer audio enjoyment, 24-bit volume control, and five digital inputs. Oh, yeah, you even get a 36-button infrared remote control for kicks. We guarantee your satisfaction but have a premonition of how you're going to feel about this knockout component.

"[The C5i] combines both functionality and performance in a compact package, underscoring the fact that you don't need to spend a small fortune to get good sound."
– Jeff Dorgay, TONEAudio

"Considering its reasonable price, the C5i has a remarkable feature set. Most important, its DAC's multiple inputs include a 24-bit/96kHz-capable USB input and a Home Theater Bypass mode."
