Bel Canto DAC3.5VB D/A Converter and VBS1 Virtual Power Supply - Complete Package


Combination package that sold together in the early 2010's for around $5000.

Erick Lichte from Stereophile had this to say in his review:

"I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Bel Canto's e.One DAC3.5VB. It does everything you might ever need a DAC to do, and I'd put its sound as being among the best I've heard. In fact, the only other digital sound I've enjoyed significantly more (in an environment I was familiar with) was when I heard the Meridian 808i.2 CD player ($16,995) at John Atkinson's house. Yes, I do think the e.One DAC3.5VB is good enough to stand comparison with a front-end of the Meridian's caliber and price. The Bel Canto's styling, build quality, and performance make it an obvious contender for Class A of our "Recommended Components," and one of the best D/A converters I've heard. And though I've heaped an embarrassing amount of praise on the e.One DAC3.5VB, I'm sure the good Minnesotans at Bel Canto won't let this review go to their heads."
