Leben CS600 integrated amplifier

A beautiful Leben CS600 integrated amplifier for sale in good condition, it has been well-cared, indeed a tube rollers paradise.

Unanimously praised and near-perfect feature set, I am the second owner and acquired the amplifier five years ago.

In 2020 I had the amplifier serviced as some of the controls needed a clean. The amplifier had a complete check over, and we decided to add a copper band to the main transformer to improve isolation further. In terms of wear and tear, the only thing to report is that some plastic has come away on the speaker terminals, but it's minor and doesn't affect performance.

The sound is superb, and I have personally had excellent results with Falcons, Proac and Harbeths. There are many other brands with good
synergy and the CS600 has the power to cope with various speakers.

If you search up Jeff Day, he is an expert on Leben, particularly the CS600 and the Sophia Electric EL34-ST; according to him is the best sounding power valve. I purchased A grade Sophia Electrics (Jan 2020) with that recommendation, and they are fantastic.


The Leben CS600 comes with:

Power valves: 4 x Sophia Electric EL34-ST
Power valves: 4 x Sovtek 6LC
Pre-amp valves: 4 x Sovtec 6CS7
Pre-amp Valves: 4 x Matched 6C37 Tung-Sol Black Plates NOS NIB Double Triode (not used - spare set)

Original Box
Manual
Bespoke perspex top cover (can be used with taller valves with the original top cover removed)

£2800 + shipping

Collection preferred from OX10 but prepared to ship postage agreed with DPD.

Here's a photo of the rear panel - there are plenty of useful options including switchable output impedance (4,6,8,16 Ohm), 5 line inputs, tape out plus the Leben can run as a power amplifier only (Preamp in).

Honestly, if I’d seen this a year ago I would have grabbed this immediately. What an amp, just beautiful. Only a lack of funds are holding me back. GLWS.
