Both Bel Canto Design and we encourage you to support your local dealers. If you are not in the New Hope PA vicinity, and if you have a Bel Canto dealer in your area, please contact that dealer for an audition and for your Bel Canto purchases.
Our pricing for this product is the "MAP Pricing." This means that the prices shown here are the "minimum advertised prices" permitted by the manufacturer. Because these are already the lowest prices possible, the additional incentives usually available under "Frequent Flyer" program do not apply to this item.
High common mode rejection, wide dynamic range custom input stages are added. This input stages improved the drive to the amplifier, resulting in lower noise and distortion and wider dynamic range in real-world operation.
The input stage uses the latest advanced amplifiers and passive components including: Caddock resistors, Solid Electrolytic ultra-low ESR decoupling capacitors and low noise regulated power supplies. These devices ensure that the input section is utterly transparent, enhancing the performance of the core amplifier.
The REF1000M and REF500M Mono amplifiers also include custom power supply rectification and filters that substantially increase the energy storage of the power supply. This stage results in lower noise in operation, reduced sensitivity to power line effects and better perceived power delivery and dynamics. Incorporating high speed, low noise rectifiers, high voltage film filter capacitors and high energy storage this filter allows the regulated power supply to perform at its best.
Both the REF500M and REF500S use 3rd generation switching amplifiers for lower High Frequency distortion, increased clarity and better high frequency extension.
All Bel Canto e.One amplifiers are gain matched for easy mixing in system building, multi-channel and vertical bi-amplification applications.
We will offer upgrades for the original REF1000 for the cost difference of the REF1000M version.
