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

I am in the process of overhauling my entire hifi and need some advice as I am relatively new to all this, having come from a more dj/music tech oriented setup.

I just bought an ortofon om-20 stylus and its sounding pretty great - now I think I just need a great pre-amp to pair it with

Current setup:

ortofon om-20
technics 1210
Onkyo tx8270
monitor audio bronze 2

Does anyone have any advice for choosing a preamp to go with the above?
£100-400 range

Thanks
