The C5i DAC Integrated Amplifier powers it all, digital analog, USB and Phono MM in one compact, powerful component. The C5i converts any source into music while giving you an amazingly compact, cool-running, high output, low-power-usage analog and digital media center. The most complete integrated amplifier, Low jitter, low noise and power isolation delivers the startling dynamics in your music.

Bel Canto’s e.One C5i DAC Integrated Amplifier connects to your computer, CD player, turntable, cable box or game console, and now you’ve got control of an entire media center in one component. Compare your analog collection to your digital all through one component. Just add a pair of speakers and the listening room is open!

The Bel Canto C5i has an outstanding 115dB dynamic range and our proprietary low-noise D-to-A convertors are based on our award-winning DAC circuit design. The C5i Includes five digital inputs including RCA, TOSLINK and one 24/96 USB input. The analog section has one pair of RCA inputs and one pair of RCA Phono MM inputs. The core 24/192 D-to-A converters are based on our Two-Stage Master Reference Ultra-Clock™ circuitry ensuring that jitter from any source is reduced below the audible threshold.

The 24-bit digital volume control is completely transparent and accurate throughout the volume range. The engineering detail that Bel Canto is known for calls for custom 0.1% audio grade resistors, class-A output control circuitry, and low-noise power supply components. The heavy-gauge all-steel chassis design prevents mechanical resonance from compromising the audio signal quality. The stereo amplifier section is based on an elegant switching output stage that eliminates thermal distortion mechanisms caused by changes in operating temperature.

The front panel features a single multifunction control knob that selects inputs and volume level for both the main outputs and ¼” front-panel headphone jack, providing flexibility and control with a simple user interface, easy to read display and full remote control.

“Considering its reasonable price, the C5i has a remarkable feature set. Most important, its DAC’s multiple inputs include a 24/96-capable USB input and a Home Theater Bypass mode. If I were considering buying an integrated amp, those alone would put the C5i at the top of my list. Add the phono input and headphone output and the C5i has all the significant features I’d be looking for in an integrated amplifier… Sweet, relaxed, immediately involving and satisfying … Whether I listened to high-resolution digital downloads or Red Book CDs, it let me enjoy my music with the simplicity of having a DAC and an integrated amplifier in a single convenient unit.”

“There’s no denying the ease of use of the C5i’s amp design: compact, cool running, and quiet. It’s ready to roll at the press of a rocker switch, and far less of a hassle to set up or move than almost any amp designed for the main room. When I say that I listened to the Bel Canto from morning cereal to sleepytime tea and was sorry when I had to close down the MacBook that tells me something about how the balance of the C5i’s sound appealed to me. Airy, responsive, and enjoyable are all terms that come to mind … Computer files using the USB input retained this same winning sound … All in all, the Bel Canto C5i has the combination of looks, sound, function, and price to make it an extremely competitive consumer option. Recommended.”

BRUTUS AWARD 2011 “Man, what a deal…you get a wonderful 60-watt amplifier and preamplifier (oh, that is referred to as an integrated), a DAC that handles multiple inputs and can deal with 24/96 and/or 24/192 signals (depending on the 5 inputs—USB, S/PDIF, optical, etc.—of choice), a MM phono stage, an analog input for some analog need, a very functional remote control, runs cool, saves energy, looks cool, is relatively small, and wait… wait for it… has a headphone amplifier! Besides all that, damn the thing even sounds really, REALLY good! I mean this could be all that you ever need…. ever!”
