This Bel Canto Black EX DAC Control/Preamp is "as new" inbox. Purchase June 28th, directly from Bel Canto Design. The invoice shown in pictures.
The Bel Canto Black EX DAC Control/Preamplifier is designed in a
custom plated high-grade aluminum chassis that contains the highest-level DAC
performance and source compatibility, including MQA, Roon, DSD, and internal
programmable phono stage. The EX DAC
controls input selection, volume control, and manages all source formats with
the highest quality detail and musicality from any source ensuring years of
EX DAC/Control Preamplifier is
built around our High Dynamic Resolution HDR-II core and high-speed
Asynchronous Multi-Input Processor (AMiP) platform that defines the most
versatile DAC preamplifier. Stream music through Ethernet or USB, a full suite
of digital inputs, line-level inputs, sub output and software-controlled internal
MM/MC analog phono stage.
The EX DAC is designed to manage the complexity of all
audio source and control functions with ease and efficiency. The 32-bit volume
and multi-processor system functions are controlled by manually pressing and
rotating the control dial on the front of the unit, or by using the IR custom
remote control, or with your iPhone/iPad and the custom iOS app. The fully
programmable display is easy to read and illuminates system status indicating
source and volume.
All source inputs are
asynchronously re-clocked into the fully balanced advanced segment DAC
measuring below 0.001% distortion and 126dB of dynamic range. By stripping away
the source clock and using Bel Canto’s custom ULN master clock circuitry, we
significantly reduce both jitter and distortion preserving the delicate audio
signals from all sources.
Asynchronous ethernet connects
you to the most compelling and power musical source available today. Bel
Canto’s proprietary asynchronous ethernet and USB-A inputs provide the highest
level of performance for high resolution files up to 24bits at 192ks/s, MQA, and DSD64. This
allows you to connect to a variety of subscription streaming service or source
from your personal library that is stored on a NAS (networked attached storage)
drive, or a multi-terabyte independent drive to the USB-A all providing full
server function with complete iOS wireless control using our SEEK control App.
Asynchronous Digital SPDIF AES,
RCA and Toslink inputs all operate at 24/192Ks.
Asynchronous USB2.0 Audio is compatible with any PCM
source up to 24/348, MQA, and DSD 128
(DoP). Windows-based computers require
our custom driver. USB2.0 works natively in OSX.

The MM/MC phono section is a low noise, low distortion circuit that is
fully programmable for optimum application with a wide range of quality
cartridges from high output MM 2.5mV to 5mV to low output MC 0.25mV to 0.5mV to
The line-level analog input also can be programmed
to gain match your analog sources and achieve the best performance from all
analog sources. The line output can be connected to a powered subwoofer
