I have a "silver" Belles. I think it was his 1st amp. The amp serial # is 028 and pre amp is 014. I did have the amp rebuilt with a new power cord, speaker terminals, cleaning and tightening of hardware. This one has no handles, just a power switch. The pre amp has 2 volume knobs, record and listen switches, power is always on. I have been very happy with it. I run some old Snell Js that I have rebuilt as well. Snell sells rebuild kits that are awsome. I often wonder what this stuff is still worth. I think it is the most power for that money. I love the other postings. I tried to get a new box and ended up talking to his wife. She is as kind as him. I think he made the first couple models in his basement, then was bought by OCM. My friend had a 300W OCM version that did not sound quite as good.
Happy listening, he made great stuff.
