The DAC2.5 converts your digital media into music for the most direct connection to your amplifier.
The DAC2.5 provides full system control and is loaded with features including an analog input.
This allows you to experience your music through the convenience of a single component, eliminating the need for a preamplifier.
The Bel Canto Dual-Differential DAC2.5 Control
Center features an outstanding 122dB dynamic range and our proprietary
low noise digital to analog convertor core. Including five 24/192
digital inputs, 24/96 USB input and a 24/192 ADC analog input, the
DAC2.5 integrates and controls all of your audio sources including an
analog input for a phono preamp or Home Theater Bypass.
The front panel features a single multifunction control knob that
selects inputs and controls volume level for both the main outs and ¼”
front-panel headphone jack. The headphone jack is driven by a dedicated
DAC/Amplifier circuit that optimizes its output and eliminates any
compromises in the main signal path.
The DAC2.5 also includes our new 8 character alpha-numeric display and
the ability to control balance, absolute phase and to rename and disable
The foundation of the DAC2.5 is the
jitter-eliminating Master Reference Ultra-Clock circuitry that insures
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. This precision continues with custom 0.1%
audio grade resistors, class-A output circuitry and low noise power
supply components. The heavy-gauge all-steel chassis design prevents
mechanical resonance from compromising the audio signal quality.
The advanced internal LNS (Low Noise Supply)
prevents power line noise from corrupting the signal using technology
developed in the VBS1 external power supply. The DAC2.5 connects
directly to the mains AC with a standard IEC connection.
Green, low-heat, efficient isolated power supplies
and a finely-tuned analog output stage make possible Bel Canto’s
eco-friendly compact designs; Bel Canto music products are fine
instruments that are musically satisfying, discrete and sleek to fit any
