From Audiophilia.com:

"Iíve experienced digital done right. The Esoteric and dCS gear Iíve heard are knockouts. And crazy expensive. Got the dosh? Go ahead. You canít beat them. But this bel canto DAC is less than 2K! Itís a lifetime DAC and worth twice the price. You wonít need anything else for a long time. And, you can sell your preamp to buy it!

Iíve heard about Bel Canto over the years but we never really bumped into each other. Iím glad we did. Iím looking forward to reviewing other Bel Canto products. In the here and now, this exceptional US$1,999 DAC will be staying in my system for a while. And, Iíll enjoy every minute with it. Very highly recommended."
