Rolls Bellari PA550 Phono Preamp

The Rolls Bellari PA550 3-Channel Preamplifier is a sleeper. Its smaller compact design may lead you to believe that it is just another pre -- but, it is a monster, it has so much gain potential that it will drive any amplifier made with ease, and not even break a sweat.

The amount of headroom available in the PA550 can only be rivaled by pres that cost enough to drain anyone's bank account.

The PA550 tone is full-bodied, letting you know right away that all frequencies are covered and nothing is masked. It never gives you the impression that it is making the treble too shimmery, or that the bass response has been overly fluffed up.

This is an all-American, bold, straight-forward approach to reproducing your music.

The phono input has a lot of surprising overtones that will truly bring your vinyl to the next level, designed to be used with Moving Magnet or High output Moving Coil carts. The most surprising feature of the 550 is when you plug your phone into it (yes, phones have over-compressed formats that don't ever qualify to be called high-end or audiophile, but sometimes you just need the convenience of plugging your phone in and streaming something!) This is truly where the 550 makes its living. The improvement of substandard formats is what the 550 will be known for. Plug your phone into the 1/8" on the front panel, adjust the tone controls, and away you go.

Yes, tone controls, the purist's worst nightmare -- the audiophile's reason for not even acknowledging a piece of equipment. The reality is that when reproducing some music you need to boost the treble a bit or pump up the bass. Sure, you could sell your current speakers and buy some that cost a lot more OR you could just adjust the controls to your liking, and bring your listening experience to a higher level.

zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Overall: This is a very nice phono/headphone preamp. Quiet even with headphones on. 3 inputs are great for my phone and future tape deck. The bass and treble really do work very well and straight up it is neutral, uncolored. I have a Sansui FR-D3 turntable with a Goldring Elan cartridge, nothing fancy, and a Eris e8 powered studio monitor and that's it. With the tone controls of the pa550 and the e8's shaping controls I'm able to dial in a good sounding record recording, without a separate eq box, more connections and more money. So with the pa 550 I have it all. My akg k701's, 32ohm's, sounds great. Now for 130 bucks don't expect a 500 dollar tube preamp or the like, but for a 130 bucks this is very respectable preamp on a budget
Style of Music: 50's 60's pop. Orchestrated music.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as you Pay® installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as you Pay® plans.
