For most of his working life Dave Belles has been very much a pre and power amplifier man and had resisted going down the integrated amplifier route, until two years ago when after some 'Persuasion ' he produced the critically accalimed and highly successful IA-01 Statement series integrated amplifier.
Pleased with it's reception, he embarked on a project to make a samller, but no less impressive version for the Soloist range.
Sporting some of the technology of the superb IA-01 the Soloist SI-1 has been molded in the same vien, serious performance, great looking package and high value for a modest outlay.
Musicality is at the heart of all Belles equipment and the Soloist integrated is no exception, with a genuine 125Wrms and over 30 amps of current the SI-1 packs a punch, yet does so in a very involving and engaging way, superb presence that flows through the musical peak's and trough's. Very linear yet full of depth and texture with great bass depth, detail and articulation
The Soloist SI-1 performs well above it price point and beyond, easily mixing with far more exhaulted company. The SI-1 comes with 5 inputs (and monitor loop), one pre output, full remote control, superb build quality and 5 year warranty.
