Belles Statement Series Amplifiers

Right from the outset the Belles statement series was conceived as Belles' 'all out' approach to creating beautifully engaging and realistic music, with a huge long term enjoyment factor.

Moving into the separates now with the monoblock amplifier combinations from the sublime MB-01 80Wrms class 'A' musical masters right through the Belles MB 200's.

Hifi Plus remarked "As soon as you fire up the MB-200s Gen II (award winning) up you realise that there's something special going on. There's an instantaneous and lucid clarity that revels in instrumental detail without being overstated". Hifi plus further commented "But the Belles have that necessary ability of any really good amp - invisibility. They are so devoid of grain and dynamic constraint that music flows from the soundstage completely unimpeded. It's a skill they share with the Hovland and Ayres, but in combination with their astonishing transparency and sheer clarity, they produce some quite breathtaking musical moments, a host of captivating instrumental detail" we feel they have a soft spot for these truly great pieces of audio art.

Following on from the superb Belles MB 200 Gen II are the defining pinnacle in the Belles amplifier tree are the breath taking MB 500 monoblocks, not merely a 'beefed up' MB 200, but a standalone amplifier in its own right. Quite simply the MB 550's take you to a musical place seldom frequented by music lovers, in a nut shell total musicality, utmost transparency and that special ability to totally remove itself from the replay chain invisibility. The power to drive any speaker you present them with without hesitation. Sublime effortless coupled with amazing involvement, producing an enjoyment factor so rarely achieved. Those looking for 'real musical insight' with compromise then the MB 550's are a must audition .

The Belles LA-01 Gen II award winning preamplifier is too cast from the same mould as the monoblock, as in no compromise sonic excellence. A two box unit, one housing a separate power supply the other the amplification stages

The Belles LA-01 Gen II too has that special ability to totally disappear from the replay chain, it's sheer transparency, openness and liquidity can beguile even the most demanding of music lovers. It's dynamic contrasts and tonal layering of the soundstage sets itself apart from all but the very top echelons of audio hierarchy.

It displays an ability to set the music 'free', communicating all the Musial ebb and flow with consummate ease. One of the truly great pre-amplifiers available today

Hifi Plus observed "It manages to combine excellent solidity of sound with the sort of slippery-fast transient speed of the darTZeel" , "The pace is incredible", "The LA-01 Gen II has the kind of quality that Louie Bellson displayed by turning the drum kit into a fluid legato instrument"

"The Belles pre-amp is not simply a speed freak though; there is a lot of dynamic weight and solidity to the sounds too", "The Belles LA-01 Gen II is surprisingly good, it's one of the fastest and most exciting pre-amps you can buy, in very much the darTZeel mode"

"In a package that challenges considerably more expensive preamps, that could prove irresistible for those seeking top class sounds over fancy frills", "that's a heady brew.".
