I just bought a Bellari phono stage and the tube doesn't seem to light up. It gets a bit warm, but it doesn't glow in the dark or anything. Is that right? I figure it wouldn't work if the tube wasn't working - or would it?
03-18-06: Chayro Roy Hall says it doesn't glow the way it does in a preamp. I guess it works - I was just surprised it didn't light up is all.
How does it sound? Sounds OK after a day. It's not really fair to judge a new piece of gear without at least a week's break in. As of this point, i'm not hearing any big difference between the Bellari and the $120 Music Hall Phono Pak. That thing is a lot better than it has a right to be.
