Passion for musical expression and technical virtuosity have been the guiding principles of the founder and head designer of Bel Canto, John Stronczer. Dissatisfaction with the status quo of ‘High End Audio’ created the desire to go beyond the mundane by designing audio systems to satisfy his deep need to experience of the power and expression of music.
Learning from past and present
This desire inspired the founding of Bel Canto Design almost 20 years ago. Continually experimenting and designing with both old and new technologies ensued: Single-Ended Triode amplifiers, advanced Digital to Analog conversion and clock recovery, advanced switching output stage audio amplifiers and even multi-channel home-theatre equipment. All of this work has lead to the present state of Bel Canto’s product offering and knowledge in High Performance home audio components and systems
Pieces of the puzzle
Each link in the complex chain from the recording studio to your home is critical to your final musical enjoyment. The last stage of this chain, beginning with the recorded medium and ending with sound in your home is typically a land mine of confusion, dead- ends and wasted effort, resulting in the loss of the compelling power that a great musical experience can bring to your life.
Our goal at Bel Canto is to help you reach audio nirvana through the application of our product design, manufacturing and system building expertise. Each part of the Bel Canto system solution is optimized to allow the original recording to come through uncorrupted, with the musical spark intact.
Bel canto design products have musical heart beating inside them, though small in stature, yet big on performance, from the superb sounding CD2 and DAC3,(both with built in pre-amplification) to the mighty Ref 1000 MKII's there is something for everyone in the Bel canto stable
