Small and perfectly formed, the Leben 300XS is quite simply 15 Watts of pure musical bliss.
We first heard this wonderful amplifier in New York where it was quite literally man-handling a pair of DeVore 9â€™s with â€˜The Stoogesâ€™ on vinyl (of course) courtesy of the superb Well Tempered Amadeus (yes, Sonata also has the DeVores and the Amadeus).
Handmade by skilled artisans, the 300XS uses EL84â€™s (no wonder YvonneÂ loves this amp, her beloved Vox AC30 uses the same valves) and 12AX7â€™s.
It also has some great features, most notably an amazing headphone output. My battered old AKG studio cans have never sounded better !
