I have for sale the highly praised Bellari VP129 Tube Phono Preamp for MM cartridges only.










[size=large]**SOLD** for $220 OBO plus shipping Paypal or MO to CONUS only.[/size]

Read the many online favorable reviews.

I have used it for 1.5 years, and I have found the Bellari VP129 to be transparent, smooth, musical and very non fatiguing especially with the very low noise Mullard ECC83 tube. The Mullard tube dramatically improves this decent entry level phone preamp by significantly lowering the noise floor, and improving the gain over the other tubes, while preserving the its basic good characteristics stated above, allowing one to get lost in the music.

It has a rumble filter switch, headphone jack, headphone volume control, and mute switch. The volume control allows for gain adjustment. The built- in decent headphone amp is also a unique plus.

With the following 12AX7/ECC83 Tubes

1) Stock Tube that came with the preamp 100 hours use
2) Groove Tube GT-12AX7-M 50 hours use
3) TUNG-SOL 12AX7/ECC803S with Gold Pins 30 hours use
4) Mullard ECC83 1968 2.03/2.10 200 hours use- My favorite

Also Included Herbie Audio Labs Tube Dampener and Baby Bootie Feet
