Leben has been widely reviewed and it survives some of the harshest critics to come out glowing, that is not just because it is a valve amplifier, just take a look at these reviews: Leben CS300XS Winner of the DIAPASON GOLD MEDAL 2010, the Six Moons review or the Tone Imports review (note the CS-300X was the previous version, this version is an update!).


CS-300XS is equipped with Sovtek EL-84 valves which are well-known by audiophiles for their high sound quality against their small size. The high input sensitivity of the EL84 does not require an overly-complicated circuit and accordingly it can create a low distortion output signal. The CS-300X(S) features five line inputs with tape monitor, headphone output, speaker / headphone selector, variable output impedance (4 / 6 / 8 ohms), all of which make the CS-300XS a fully featured integrated amplifier of the highest standard with a truly classic appearance.
