Hit me up with any questions..Here is an excerpt from a review in soundstage magazine..
If having a great sounding $1,195 100 watt stereo amplifier is only about 2/3 of what you need, how about a $1,495 Belles 150A 3-Channel amp? This amp uses the same chassis and the same circuits as the stereo 150A. You get 3 channels at 100 watts into 8 ohms (175 watts into 4 ohms). The third heat sink fills the center of the back panel of the amp. A 3rd set of binding posts and a 3rd RCA input fill out the last of the available space on the back panel. No underpowered center channel speaker ever sounded good. Having some guts to drive the center speaker is really a necessity for good home theater sound. A stereo 150A and a 3 channel 150A would make for a great surround amplification system.
Wrap It Up, I'll Take It
The 150A is an exceptional value in amplification. For $1,195 you get a very musical, exciting, involving amplifier. It plays all types of music convincingly and enjoyably. This is not a hyper-audiophile product. It is an honest amp destined to be a classic product like the Belles 150 of the late 1980s. If you are thinking about a complete high-end system, the 150A is so good that you could cut your amp budget and spend more on speakers. If you have a good set of speakers and a good preamp but your system just isn't musically "alive", the 150A could be the antidote. Selection of the right interconnects and speaker cables is critical with this amp, its character will change significantly depending on how the wires work with it. Isolation and damping will extend the performance of this amp to an alarming degree, boosting its performance into very exclusive territory. If you're looking for a $1,200 amp, you should be very very happy about the appearance of the Belles 150A. Your amp dollars can now get you sound quality not previously possible at this price point.
