Soundscape Price: $399
In stock and shipping now.

The vp530 is a usb/tube phono preamp for use with moving-magnet and high output moving-coil cartridges. It includes a built in headphone amplifier, Burr-Brown A2D converter w/usb output, and RIAA curve/flat EQ. The vp530 is designed to amplify an RIAA equalized phono signal to a hi-level signal or provide a usb digital output. Since the unit utilizes tube circuitry, the resulting output signal is more warm and musical than solid state preamplifiers. The real kicker aside from the price and stellar sound is that it's manufactured in the US.

Imagine running along the beach listening to your favorite records. Well...Wally it's no longer pure fantasy. We all know the sweet luscious sounds produced by the highly acclaimed bellari vp129. Now, bellari have released a usb version of the vp129 named the vp530. Going one better than vp129 the vp530 has a usb output which allows users to download their vinyl collection to their computer or hard disc server.

The vp530 employs a sophisticated Burr-Brown PCM2901EG (16 bit 44.1khz) chip in a smartly designed bellari circuit. This gives you a digital datastream that is output through usb. Through the use of audio editing and recording software you can record this datastream to your hard disc. Audio recording software is included with the vp530 but we recommend the freeware Audacity: http://audacity.sourceforge.net/

To RIAA or not to RIAA? That is the question. If you're like Randy..."I want to set my own curve"...Audio Vision SF the answer is dead flat...sans RIAA. You can output a flat datastream and set whatever curve you like. You can also choose your own sampling rate and format. Hell...you can start cutting up the tracks sampling and make your own damn music.

Features and Specs


VP129 TUBE PHONO PREAMP

Soundscape Price: $250

The perfect blend of price and performance! Get the magical warmth of tubes for under $400 bucks! The new Bellari MM Tube Phono stage sounds as good as it looks and it looks gorgeous in its fire engine red powder coat finish. This compact and affordable tube phono stage is recommended for all MM phono cartridges (from about 2.5mV to 5mV output). Looks are deceiving in the sense that this little phono stage has a jam-packed circuit board inside and uses a single 12AX7 tube in the output stage for that luscious midrange only tubes can provide. It’s also dead quiet; its signal to noise ratio is 80dB! The VP129 also has a few added features that everyone will appreciate: a ” headphone jack on the back panel, a mute switch, a 20Hz (infrasonic) rumble filter, and separate output volume controls for the mains and headphones! This is a killer deal!

This is a killer deal! “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!” - Jimmy Hughes, HiFi+ Issue #38

"The Bellari VP129 gets my highest recommendation..." Michael Fremer says in the February Stereophile. He goes on to say, "...I promise that your CD's will start to gather dust."
