Stereophile Review“The versatile Bellari looks great and it sounded as good as it looks. It was quiet and golden-sweet and liquid in the midrange, as you’d expect from a 12AX7-based phono preamp. I wasn’t expecting its top end to be so nicely extended, fast, and clean, or its bass to be so snappy, articulate, and extended. Every type of music I played through the surprising little Bellari sounded full-bodied and rich, yet detailed and crisply rendered. The Bellari gets my highest recommendation, and is the budget phono preamp I will now recommend for every genre of music…get a Bellari and a budget turntable, and I promise that your CDs will start to gather dust!”
TAS Review“The Bargain of a Lifetime Tube Phono Stage. For (this price), the Bellari Tube Phonostage offers warm musical sound and may be just what the doctor ordered for those who want to get into analog without loading up the credit card.”
Hifi+ Review“I was surprised by how attractive and well balanced it sounded: smooth and warm, yet open and crisply detailed. The Bellari seemed to create a sound that was rich, natural and appealing. Surface noise was low, and the music emerged from a crisp, clean, quiet background. It was an excellent sound by almost any standards; one I was very happy to listen to. An excellent performer at a very reasonable price!”

Worth every penny

Worth every single penny and then some.You would have to spend a ton more cash to do better than the Bellari VP130. A great thing about the Bellari is you can experiment with different tubes and tweak the sound the way you like.
This is a fantastic tube preamp. I use it with a pro-ject Carbon debut and audio-engine 5s and it sounds amazing. It's warm and smooth and super quiet. A superior product for a great price.
love this preamp
I love this preamp, it sounds great, looks cool on my desk, and brings out the best in my turntable.

This unit made a very noticeable improvement to my mid-grade set-up. Upgraded the tube to the Tung-Sol. Sound gets even better after 2 or 3 records during a listening session. Love it!
