At Bellari we take tube based equipment very seriously. No 48V plate voltages here. We have removed the high cost of point to point wiring and inefficient construction techniques and left the pure analog musical sound that class "A" tubes can offer. Bellari is available to everyone, not just the moneyed few.
Bellari is one of those rare values that comes from a perfect blend of function and design. In only seven years Bellari has become a major force in digital recording front ends and for performing musicians.

When you’ve heard it done right, you’ll know immediately.
Correct presentation in time is the key element to transparency. We experience this every day in our listening to the un-amplified world around us.
Transparency is so much more than just low distortion. It is that rare and special ability of an exceptional piece of audio equipment to get out of the way of the performance and allow the listener to really hear the expression, emotion, and subtlety of each individual performer.
The touch and feel of each instrument becomes profoundly clear - the foundation and the soul of the performance. There should be no equipment bias as to the type of music be it contemporary, jazz, rock, classical, and other forms of musical expression. Herron correctly presents to the listener music as performed and recorded!

Heinz Lichtenegger, one of Austria's leading distributors of high-end audio brands, founded PRO-JECT AUDIO SYSTEMS in early 1990. As an audiophile and music lover, Heinz 's interest in turntables and analog playback turned into a passion to create turntables, tonearms and analog accessories that were reasonably priced yet that were uncompromised both mechanically and sonically. This passion is what led him and his like-minded colleagues to launch a new business venture named PRO-JECT AUDIO SYSTEMS.http://www.project-audio.com/
Rega Research Limited
Rega’s philosophy is to make high quality products at sensible prices, as a means of reproducing music as faithfully as possible.
We are committed to the design and development of new and existing products, both in hi-fi and other areas, that will perpetuate Rega’s values of quality and value for money.
By 1983 the time had come for Rega to design and build its own tonearm and so the world famous RB300 (Rega Britain) was born. The high pressure die-cast silicon alloy tube alone took two years to develop alongside the UK's largest die-cast company. The work and our casting subsequently won us an "international casting award" from America for what is still considered today to be a technically impossible casting.http://www.rega.co.uk/
Sutherland offers a different vision – it may be more closely aligned with your values. It is a very disciplined approach that refines design to the essential elements – and then executes the design to perfection. There is no allowance for superfluous clutter. Nothing extra will be allowed between you and the musichttp://www.sutherlandengineering.com/
No discussion of design philosophy will prepare you for the sound of our finely crafted instruments. One listen and you will appreciate that VAC indeed makes the world's finest audio components, an appreciation that will only grow over a lifetime of listeninghttp://www.vac-amps.com/
