BEL CANTO PRE1 preamplifier:

Works PERFECT...with original remote.

The Bel Canto PRE1 is an absolutely KILLER preamp. It is fully the EQUAL in EVERY WAY to my BAT VK-51SE tube preamp, and my Cary SLP-05 tube preamp...BOTH are STEREOPHILE Class “A” rated components. Yes the tube preamps are a little warmer sounding, I’d give the BAT VK-51SE a 6.5, and the CARY a 6 (with 10 being the most warm one can get, and a 0 the coldest sounding, while 5 would be neutral). The Bel Canto PRE1

I would give a 5.5, as it is very neutral sounding with just a touch of extra warmth...which

I like….VERY much.

The Bel Canto is significantly better in every way when compared to my Proceed PRE, itself

A Stereophile Class “B” rated component, and a great performer in every regard.

This unit is EXTREMELY well built, and fully featured (look at the pics)

WHAT’s Included:

-Bel Canto PRE1 preamp

-AC power cord

-Original remote

(I do not have the original box, but I assure you,that it will be VERY well packed (read my feedback...many are stunned at just how well I pack)

Unit is rated a “6”....but very likely at least a “7”....look at the pics...I like to rate conservatively

To be clear...this component is not officially rated a Stereophile class A component, that I know of, but it DOES have that level of performance.

Reason for sale: I now live in a small townhouse, and no longer have room for a dedicated stereo rig...:-(

PLEASE READ MY LEGENDARY, PERFECT FEEDBACK....and be at ease with your purchase.

PAYPAL & Credit Cards!!!! (paypal/credit card fees (less than paypal) fees, if any, are buyer's responsibility ), BUT will accept personal check from TOP rated Audiogoners, with great feedback (at my discretion)

International shippers are responsible and must set up their own shipment, and email me the shipping label....I'm not setting up the international shipping.
