Soundstage! Ultra Reviews The DAC3.5VB mkII, VBS1, REFLink System

"...the Bel Canto stack stacks up well against the DACs that many feel are among the best available, and at less than Arab-sheik prices. They're sonically very well balanced across the board, but are simply superb in the midrange, where lots of music needs it most."

-Jeff Fritz, Aug 2013

Stereophile: "Bel Canto Reinvents the Receiver"

"The C7R is tiny but elegant; it uses little power, doesn't get hot, and it's built in the US by a real company that stands behind its work. I loved the Bel Canto C7R. I recommend it to anyone who wants simplicity and great sound"

-Erick Lichte, March 2013 issue of Stereophile
