Description

Wide-Bandwidth, Highly Efficient, Ultra-Low-Noise Bel Canto e.One REF600M Monoblock Amplifier Outputs Serious Power and Drives Speakers with Authority: Compact Unit Saves Space and Runs Cool

Don't judge this book by its alluringly compact, lightweight cover. Made in Minnesota, the cool-running and wide-bandwidth Bel Canto e.One REF600M monoblock amplifier outputs serious power (300Wpc into eight ohms, 600Wpc into four ohms) and operates with such quiet that it can easily drive even the most sensitive speakers without any issue. Combining the purity of Class A designs with the feel-it-in-your bones impact of Class D types, REF600M plays with a sit-up-and-take-notice presence that will likely have you wondering how a 15-pound, 3.5 x 8.5 x 12-inch (HWD) box can manage to be so musical, authoritative, and engaging.

The simple explanation owes to Bel Canto's use of NCore technology – which employs fully discrete, self-oscillating Class D architecture with a fifth-order control loop to attain vanishingly low levels of noise and distortion – and proprietary amplifiers based on Hypex NC500 module and SMPS 1200 power supply. DC-coupled to prevent any possible degradation caused by coupling capacitors, REF600M also utilizes high-performance stages with local feedback and a first stage that supplies a majority of the gain with a high input impedance and low output impedance to drive the output power stage. In addition, the unit's trademarked Impedance Optimized Input Stage is a balanced high common mode rejection, low-output impedance driver that proves crucial to the overall performance and refined dynamics.

On the back panel, WBT NextGen five-way binding posts impart no detectable sonic signature to your speaker cables and maintain an open, grain-free nature absent from those on many other amplifiers. A balanced and RCA input, trigger switch, and simple on/off switch complete the simple layout. Setup couldn't be easier. Neither could enjoying the improvements a pair of REF600Ms will make to your system.

Complete with a 27A peak output current and selectable gain option (27dB or 33dB), REF600M aces the spatiality, dimensionality, accuracy, richness, and naturalism characteristics that allow reproduced music to come alive in your home. Acclaimed by The Absolute Sound, Stereophile, Hi-Fi+, and other expert audiophile sources, it stands as a benchmark both in its price class and ability. 100% Music Direct Guaranteed.

"How good is the REF600M? To my ears it's good enough to qualify as the best all-around power amplifier I've heard to date, regardless of technology or circuit topology. Its combination of extremely low noise (that makes it suitable to drive even highly sensitive loudspeakers), precision three-dimensional imaging, relaxed and natural harmonic balance, and power capability makes for a potent package."
– Steven Stone, The Absolute Sound, Product of the Year Award

"Bel Canto Design's REF600M has the power to impress. It never ran out of watts, and, with recording after recording, its sound was musically satisfying – so satisfying that it encouraged, even demanded, listening with complete engagement."
– Kalman Rubinson, Stereophile

"Class D, by the way, is no longer a poor sister to Class A or Class AB.It is right there in sonic quality and power. If you don't believe me, give it a listen yourself. Plus, you won't have to buy beer for your friends to help you haul the amps into the listening room."
– Eric Neff, Hi-Fi+
