Bel Canto Design announce e.One Stream

  • Network streamer; streaming bridge; Ethernet-to-USB converter. Three ways to describe the newly announced e.One Stream from Bel Canto Design.

    An Asynchronously-timed Ethernet signal goes in…and a S/PDIF digital audio stream (PCM or DSD) comes out: AES/EBU, coaxial or TOSLINK, ready for connection to a downstream DAC. All digital outputs are clocked by ‘ultra-low phase noise’ master clocks to stream bit-perfectly and gaplessly.

    Also on the rear panel, we note the inclusion of an RCA (line-level) analogue output that talks to an internal 24bit/192kHz- and MQA-capable DAC for those not already in possession of a third party D/A converter.

    In getting hands-on with music playback, we look to the Minneapolis manufacturer’s ‘Seek’ UPnP app (iOS only) that allows users to UPnP stream from a local library; either a NAS or a USB hard drive directly connected to its rear. The UPnP-ing Seek app integrates vTuner radio, Tidal and Qobuz. The e.One Stream is also Roon Ready.

    Bel Canto’s e.One Stream will sell for US$1599.
