Class-Leading 124dB Dynamic Range, 24-Bit/192kHz USB Input, and Advanced Master Clocks Attest to Performance of the Bel Canto e.One DAC 2.8: U.S.A.-Made DAC Delivers Authoritative Sound
No-nonsense engineering, straight-up superb performance, exceptional low-noise analog circuitry, and cutting-edge flexibility combine in harmonious bliss in the Bel Canto e.One DAC 2.8 DAC/control preamplifier. Belying its conveniently compact form and intentionally minimalist aesthetics, the U.S.A.-made e.One DAC 2.8 dazzles with an array of features that help play music with stunning detail, openness, authority, purity, and dynamics. With e.One DAC 2.8 in your chain, audio becomes as fun as peeling the shrink wrap off a new LP for the first time. Never mind this component's 14-pound or 8.5 x 12.5 x 3.5-inch (WDH) dimensions. It delivers like a full-size heavyweight on steroids whether employed in a full stereo setup or computer-audio rig. And it upsamples any incoming data that is less than 24-bit/192kHz to that standard.
Featuring Bel Canto's High-Dynamic Resolution Core – a technology comprised of ultra-low-noise master clocks, advanced asynchronous interfaces, and dual-mode high-efficiency power supplies – e.One DAC 2.8 also includes an asynchronous 24-bit/192kHz USB2.0 input that works with the built-in, dual, ultra-low-noise Femtosecond clocks to provide arresting fidelity from your files and streamed music. Bel Canto Virtual Battery Technology isolates the converters from power-line noise and ensures low-impedance power delivery to (and isolation of) the electronics. No wonder e.One DAC 2.8 boasts a class-leading 124dB dynamic range. A 24-bit high-definition volume control, 36-button infrared remote control, and analog input also come standard. Ditto a dedicated high-current headphone output for driving your 'phones and five asynchronous digital inputs for handy versatility.
On the front of the unit, a programmable eight-character display seamlessly works with the dual-functioning one-knob interface to access all basic functions in a few quick clicks. Cool-running operation and a heavy-gauge, resonance-defeating steel chassis round out an all-rounder powerhouse on which Music Direct gladly stakes its 100% Satisfaction Guarantee.
