The Bellari pre-amp is superior to the phono stage on my old Sony ES receiver. No more muddy bass & a better over all sound stage. Great product, thanks for your help Crutchfield!

Pros: Works as advertised. Easy set up.

Cons:

Great Little Tube Preamp

Crutchfield customer from Georgetown, TX on 5/17/2020

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Greatly improved the clarity of sound from the vinyl records. The bass response is noticeably smoother. I now have my mixer power amp volume half way instead of maxed while the preamp volume is set at 35%. Made in USA so that is a plus. Construction is solid. The tube is the same as in most tube amps for guitar. It is exposed so caution is required not to touch it. My only minor issue is it doesn't have a power on/off switch. Just remove the power cable when no longer in use. Highly recommended.

Pros: Uses a proven vacuum tube for preamps. Solid construction. Decent price. Made in USA. Very easy to operate.

Cons: No power switch.

I am very happy, just what I was looking for.

James from Denver,CO on 3/2/2020

I don't have a very expensive system compared to some I see online, but for me the VP130 just makes listening to my collection even more entertaining. I could not be happier with my purchase.

Pros: I like that I can replace the tube to alter the sound a bit.

Cons: I am not much of a fan of a separate power supply. I know they do help with noise, but I would like an internal power supply better. I realize that for the price that might not be possible.
