Does anyone know if Power Modules is still in business and still managed by David Belles ?
If so, what is the best way to get in touch with David these days ?  Look forward to any input.

Also Dave Belles has this absolutely smoken superb new 1995 Aria integrated that sounds amazing and engaging at the same time with remote, phono action, headphone jack and Made in USA.
 and no switching chips BS either Its a real amp!
  Audio Connection is a Belles dealer for many years.

Johnny R- How does it compare to the Heed Obelisk?
Hey Don
The Heed obelisk is a nice refined amp, sweet driving a pair of epos or similar designs offers a nice intimate presentation for smaller bedrooms.
They also make nice discreet headphone amps and Phono stages we like as well.

The Belles Aria is a different animal extraordinarily open, dynamic visceral, engaging drives Vandersteen Treo CTs/ 2 Sigs to near perfection, Proac Studio 148s B&Ws and Magnepan point .7series etc most folks hear this w Treo CTs and say wow that's amazing.
 Its got a nice phono section, remote volume control, remote source input, Tape monitor, headphone jack, / on/ off, real chassis mount RCA Jacks,  a talented real amp inside and Made in USA!
  I once asked Apogee's Jason Bloom a question Jason It seems you like to run with many crazy expensive amps with your speakers are there any that play music that you approve of at real world $ and he said Belles I don't know how he does it.
 For me , its an easy choice I love it.

Hi John- Thanks for your reply. It sounds as if the Heed shines with micro-dynamics, and play nicely with a good budget speaker like Epos. Yet it's synergy with Harbeth is also pretty well documented. 
Cheers (-: Don   
Yes agree but document this
 you may feel foolish if you deny yourself hearing the Aria
 Its really capable of eating the lunch of the status quo.
 Pop down we can have fun and put on the sun glass blinders for you
 and then tell me what you like.
 Best

Hey Johnny R- I appreciate the invite, and opportunity. Will certainly give that some thought.  Cheers -Don
Audio Connection - how does the Belles Aria compare to the Belles Soloist 1 int amp?

Thanks,
Matt
(((How does the Belles Aria compare to the Belles Soloist 1 int amp?))

 The Belles Aria @ 1995 is over 2 years of work and in a much higher sophisticated league then the soloist.
 As a matter of fact most will miss the boat on how good it is
 bobbing around for what they read is good with 200 watts without a listen.
What this thing does or should i say doesn't do I cant even put a price on it.

@audioconnection John, the Aria has caught my attention.  How would you say it compares to the Ayre 7xe integrated?  For example, with Vandersteen?  Does the Aria use less feedback than the Soloist 1?  Aria a good fit with Treo?

As always, thanks......

Hey folks. I am running a Belles Aria preamp with Dave's 150A power amp. I still have my old Belles One. Dave is a fine gentleman/great designer/craftsman. I play a Scout/Sumiko through his combo out to a pair of refurbed Ohm 2.2000. Sounds like music to me. He builds the real thing!

birbygdad: I am looking at going to his separate Aria line or possibly the Aria Int. Amp which I have read great things about. Currently using Hegel which I really like as it does a great job on the digital end as well. 
hey gandalf: my old Belles One still works pushing an even older pair of ARs. My present system is based on Dave Belles equipment as referenced above. His work has a simple strength about it that I appreciate. It’s not fancy or extravagant but very musical. The phone preamp is very good. I haven’t heard the Aria power amp but if I needed one I would not hesitate.
