Stereophile testar BMC C1

Recommended Posts

For the Amplifier C1's relatively affordable price of $7990, B.M.C. Audio delivers high tech, high style, and high power, as well as the flexibility afforded by five inputs. It's a fun product to look at, to use, and to listen to.

Whether you call it an integrated amplifier or "a power amplifier with variable amplification and input choice," its generous power and black backgrounds made it sound more like a pair of monoblocks. Few integrated amplifiers of my experience, particularly at this price, have produced the Amp C1's level of muscular, woofer-gripping bass and overall sonic ease. Music didn't drip from the speakers, as it so often does from integrateds—it erupted.

Yes, you can buy more nuance and subtlety, but it will come at the price of power, or it will cost you a lot more. And I'm not sure you can buy greater sonic excitement. If you're thinking your system needs a wake-up call, the Amplifier C1 will deliver that in style.
