I saw this shortly before Christmas and was seriously tempted. However I have spent last years budget upgrading my UQ2 to a Uniti Star. And I keep telling myself I just need to sit down and listen to the music I have on the equipment I already have.

thats a very interesting pre amp , i had the vt01 on demo and had the remote been easier to control i would have bought it. belles stuff is so good but very hard to resell when it comes to upgrading . never forget audio emotion had a super pair of belles mb100 for several years at a good price .

reading a review yesterday of sugden gear folks kept referring to belles aria integrated
