    Harbeth SHL5+ Speakers in Rosewood

    Bump. Pics added. Sorry for the delay
  3. Item: Leben CS600 Integrated Amplifier and Leben RS30-EQ Location: Melbourne - Western Suburbs Price: $8000 or nearest offer Item Condition:9.5/10 Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Like the Harbeth SHL5+ i have listed for sale, there is not a lot to say about these intergrated amplifiers as the internet is already over saturated with plenty of glowing reviews and information about them. Both the CS600 and RS30-EQ was bought brand new from Soundlabs in February 2017. In excellent unmarked condition. i would honestly say i have approximately 300 hours on them both. I have also a matching quad set of the KT120 that i will throw in that really brings the CS600 to another level. Currently paired with the Harbeths, it is the most popular match with some of the members here on Stereonet and all over the world.  Note: Can work out a packaged deal if bought together with the Harbeth SHL5+ speakers https://lebenhifi.com/products/cs600.html https://www.soundlabsgroup.com.au/p/Leben-CS600/Leben+CS-600+Integrated+Amp https://www.audiostream.com/content/leben-cs600-appreciation https://www.stereophile.com/thefifthelement/the_fifth_element_60/index.html http://www.6moons.com/audioreviews/leben2/system.html https://www.stereophile.com/content/leben-rs-30eq-phono-preamplifier Pictures:

    Various Hifi gear for sale

    Randle, the Vincent actually belongs to my father whom which decided to go the tube valve route when i ventured into it. Packs lots of power for a class A amp and can easily drive most sensitive speakers including the dyns. He then decided to go the pre-power route to which he seems content with. For a hybrid, its overall sound is full-bodied, self-assured, and seemingly complete. Plenty of rave reviews on this amp online The Melody is a gorgeous looking amp. This was my first tube valve amp to which ive spent hundreds in tube rolling to extract more out of the amp. The I34 replaced the H34 Signature. This amplifier can be muscular at one minute yet delicate the next, extracting minute details from the music. The sound stage is wide and deep and the bass is extremely realistic. The bass however is not dry or truncated, like many transistor amplifiers. It delivers information in the bass registers with plenty of feeling. Should be plenty of reviews on it. Google is your friend And lastly, in the end, ive settled with a CAT signature pre-amp driving a pair of Melody M300B monoblocks into a pair of Proac standmounts. The source is a Meridian 608 CDP and clearaudio TT. Not as extravagant compared to some of the users here but im content so far.
