“The Library” is the room where you can peruse, at your leisure, historical audio-related articles and information, mostly in regards to “Beltism”. We ask only that you please refrain from undue noisemaking, as there are other people in the room busy at study!
About “The P.W.B. Library”: Long before the controversy over Belt’s groundbreaking discoveries in audio and the controversial products that resulted from that, Peter Belt was making groundbreaking inroads into building state of the art speaker and headphone systems that rivalled the very best products of their day. Long before today, before audio journalists in the British hifi publications were forbidden or too intimidated to publish positive reviews on Belt’s products, there were many positive reviews on Peter’s products. And long before he retreated from public life, there were even interviews with him. Controversy however, it must be stated, always surrounded the announcement of his products, and indeed, any mention of them.
I think it helps to put The Belt Story in perspective, by reaching into the back catalogue of Beltian history to uncover what many people, whether critics, or even Beltists themselves, may not know about the father of avant-garde audio. The Library consists entirely of excerpted print publications, and includes commentaries of Mr. Belt’s products and ideas, interviews with the man himself, and an overview of some of his pioneering state-of-the-art products and designs within the realm of conventional audio engineering, before he discovered what is now known as “The Belt Effect”. If you have any interest in how the whole hulabaloo started, how it evolved over the years, and some positive affirmations from the industry back then to help put things in perspective today… then I suggest you read ‘em quick before the take-down order!

“Real knowledge is to know the extent of one’s ignorance.” – Confucius GOD IS IN THE DETAILS Beltism teaches us that there is a Zen approach necessary, if you are interested in following the path to audio Nirvana. In that sense, Peter Belt is like a solitary Buddhist monk(full article)
I’m starting to change my way of thinking about the so-called “Belt phenomenon”. Starting to realize that, there is no “Belt phenomenon” as such. And its wrong for me to think about it in those terms. Yes, there’s a “Belt phenomenon”, in that Peter Belt discovered this hitherto unknown(?) scientific(full article)
A long time ago, in a galaxy far far away, a group of elite Jedi fighters were training to use a mysterious “force”, to aid them in their quest for security and a better life…..
…On this planet, not so many years ago (roughly 10), I embarked on a series of audio experiments that involved aligning slotted screws on light switch plates (link), so that they were 180 degrees vertical. This was, naturally, an idea from Peter Belt, of P.W.B. Electronics. One which I sought to validate or invalidat
Ok, so I’m taking a break from the World of Beltism to explore the World of Chi Fi, to get into some serious earphoning. (Don’t get excited, it’s only temporary). Here, I undertake a major, comprehensive, multi-product review of an array of VLPE’s (Very Low Priced Earphones!). aka “in-ear monitors”, aka(full article)
Now here’s what may sound like an unusual theory… of which I have no doubt, no conventional thinker will believe. Even if they can claim tens of years of experience in audio. If you fit that bill and just react with amusement… then great. Call me the new “Cartoons on(full article)
This review of P.W.B.’s “Morphic Link Bookmark” can be considered “Part 2” of my review on the “Morphic Link Paper Clips”, from P.W.B. Electronics. Particularly as this new device followed that one in series, and both follow the same concept: “linking or breaking patterns of morphic resonance”, as the instruction(full article)
