  6. Item: Pair of Bel Canto REF500 mono power amps Location: Perth (Willagee) Price: $1800 firm Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Too many amps Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Purchased here one year ago, tested it and packed up. My other amp(s) did not sell...very reluctant sale. I'm using original photos from old post, I doubt I can make any better . Pref. local buyers . Comes in original boxes that I can put in one box for extra protection and send via StarTrack couriers with tracking for $50. Great chance to pick up a pair of these fantastic power amps at a great price. The REF 500 mono's are widely regarded as better sounding than their slightly more powerful brothers, the REF1000m. Some spec's from the Bel Canto website: The REF500M monoblock amplifier has excellent power combined with upper midrange and high frequency clarity and openness that lets the subtle detail from your source component pass through to your speakers. Max Power Output: 500W 4 ohms, 250W 8 ohms per Channel Minimum Load: 3 ohms per Channel Peak Output Current: 35 Amps Balanced Input Impedance: 200 Kohms REF500M Monoblock Amplifier Reviews Positive Feedback, Audio Discourse, Jan-Feb 2011 "While you may come for the power of the REF500M monoblocks, you will stay for the musicality … Considerably sweeter than their predecessors … more open and transparent, with greater clarity and control (particularly of the bass) … A more relaxed presentation (particularly on the top end), and really remarkable rhythm and pacing. … I experienced all audio events as occurring in real time; in the here and now ... ample power reserves track the leading edge of transients, as well as the rise and fall of dynamics with incredible accuracy, timing and presence … with a focused, convincing soundstage. Musically, you want for so little, it's hard to imagine wanting anything more." SoundStage, Dan Davis, April 2010 "My extended time with the Bel Canto e.One REF500Ms put to rest all doubts or misconceptions I’d had about class-D switching amplifiers -- they could play with the big amps of any class. The REF500Ms displayed excellent transients and dynamics, legitimate high-end microdynamics, and good depth and soundstaging, among their other attributes. And for Manhattan apartment dwellers and others with limited space, their small size is a huge asset. The e.One REF500M represents good value for what, these days, is a reasonable price in highend audio. It’s hard to go wrong with these beauties; they prove that small can be beautiful, even in the high end." Positive Feedback, Guido Corona, July-Aug 2010 "The Bel Canto REF500Ms are far from being mere raw 125ASX2 modules hidden inside handsome boxes. Like the power conversion components imbedded in so many advanced amplifiers based on other underlying technologies, the ICEpower 125ASX2s are but central building blocks of a comprehensive design, optimized to yield astonishingly high musical performance. … Harmonic exposure, development, and congruence is wholly convincing … Give the Bel Canto REF500Ms a long audition: you will be amazed by their surprising authority, seduced by their agility, and will fall in love with their superior musicality." Digital Trends, Adam Milgrom, April 2009 "Green has become the new buzzword for socially-conscious living. In this area, audiophiles have been woefully behind the curve with cabinets full of energy-sucking electronics. Bel Canto REF500M amplifiers give you great sound AND sips lightly from the energy stream. My last class A power amplifier regularly pulled an extra $30 per month from my wallet. By contrast even when left on 24/7 the REF500Ms drew less than $30 of juice in an entire year! You can hear all the wonders of Miles Davis’ ‘Kind of Blue’ while staying completely green. In short, welcome to the new electronic millennium!" Pictures:
