The main reason I would suggest the Belles amp for me it sounds less like a stereo and more like music or what’s supposed to happen with engagement into the music. The Belles gets along with many preamps, tube units included most likely because of...

Replacement for Vandersteen 2ce
(((((replacement speakers for my Older Vandersteen 2ce speakers. )))Before you jump ship. It sounds like you could have an improper tilt back in your set up to be complaining of that area amongst other things. Glad to see you are enjoying your new... 
Speaker Recommendations - from Vandersteen 5As

Proac 2.5 Response tweeter upgrade with Ribbon Tweeter?
(((If you don't have a huge 3d soundstage with the D48r something else is wrong))Yes in total agreement. They play music without ringing artifacts.To some folks, ringing offers a short term wow factor. Best JohnnyR

Calling all Vandersteen Fans
