WITHDRAWN OR RELISTED: Leben CS-300XS Integrated Amplifier for sale

Recommended Posts

Guest Clarence

Item: Leben CS-300XS Integrated Amplifier, serial no. 800131
Location: Dundas Valley, Sydney
Price: $3,300 negotiable, please be kind
Item Condition: Used, very nice condition, a little dusty but no signs of tarnishing or fading, very minor pair of scrapes on right wood panel (right as looking at amp's. front - see image, though exaggerated by the digital image)
Reason for selling: Utterly adorable little performer, but it really is time to reduce some of the household's excesses.
Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only - in negotiation with a buyer I may reconsider the PayPal option.
Extra Info:

- I mentioned an "adorable little performer", but this understates this is a very capable amplifier and will make for an extraordinary engine for someone looking for a small overall system, or even a computer-time amplifier for the desk. There's a lot of big amp. in this small form factor and is no slouch.

- Always run through surge protectors and other conditioners, this unit has seen hopefully only the cleanest possible power.

- Very, very reasonable integrated headphone amplifier and 6.3mm jack, highly recommended.

- I have no immediate power cable for the unit, a typical IEC connector (see images). If prompted by a potential buyer I should be able to find something generic for it.

(( I should mention the amplifier is currently with me in Sydney ))

I am a Leben lover for many years; fantastically musical gear and the most lovely sound, especially with the best tubes. A companion for life. I think there's different amps out there but (for me) none better. Did I mention EL84??


Somebody buy this before I impulsively take it home

Hi, does your Leben 300SX have standardSovtek tubes, or other valves? How many hours on these, and any servicing recently? What year manufactur?


cheers M2m

Hello M2M, the amplifier is completely stock, so if it's Sovteks then that's what they are. I am sorry, I have never cracked the lid and so would not be able to confirm your Sovtek suggestion nor the age/s. They were used in the amp. for maybe 300 - 400 hours, they have plenty of life left. Other than some dusting the amp. is in very new condition.


Hope this helps.

I really only am curious to have it as a spare headphone amp. So, I can offer $2400 cash , for Friday or Sat exchange. Am looking for /at other headphone gear, any other gear you have for sale?


Cheers M2m

Does it have pre outs for a sub? Record out ..is that a fixed volume

I could only estimate the record out is fixed. Input sensitivity would be varied on your tape deck on the recording side. As for a subwoofer feed, I have to say I've never used one and would not know what the requirements for running a sub are.


Recording Out would be fixed, use Tape input back onto the Leben and the Tape Monitor switch to listen to that recording, which would be a variable signal again based on the 300's regular volume control. Aside from my tape deck remark, this would be pretty cool monitoring your digitising of your vinyl collection given a good ADC.


If your sub runs two RCA inputs left/right and has its own volume control then the Recording Out would probably be your option and thereby removing the Leben's potentiometer from that volume control. But don't take my word for it, I don't know your sub and have never met one.


I could only, otherwise, re-refer anyone for specs. to the Leben website, I can only say I wish the minutiae of the details were better fleshed out :-

PS, am in Sydney , lower north shore, so local pickup and exchange suits well.  Thx M2m

Yes, no swapping is of interest and your 2.4 offer is not quite there. I think they probably want this sort of thing in private messages.

I think I'm going to 'bump' this, I hope this is how bumping an entry works.
After 30 days have lapsed you are permitted to relist your ad after closing this prior one. That will properly return your listing to the top of the for sale threads (until the subsequent listing is posted)

Beautiful amp, good luck with a smooth sale.

Righto, I'll leave it as is till a current interest wanes or is enticed and relist during a blank space. First time, thanks for the heads-up (another one), hadn't realised the importance of this re-listing process.

      This beautiful looking integrated amp sounds as good as it looks. With 500 eco friendly Class D watts per channel it can drive virtually any speaker with absolute finesse. As seen in the images the amp has been carefully used and was purchased new by me about 5 years ago. The  amp was serviced by a authorised April Music technician about about 12 months ago. The amp has no operational issues and offers various configurations of usage such as: multiple balanced and unbalanced connectivity, power amp direct (if you want to bypass the preamp), and preamp output (if you want to use a different power amp).

      Weight: 9.8kg

      Price: $3500 Item Condition: Excellent Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available.,Pickup available and you can audition. Suburb or Town: Secret Harbour 6173 State: Western Australia Payment Method: Cash, Paypal, EFT Reason for selling: Raising Funds for Active ATC Speakers I have recently auditioned a pair of Active ATC speakers and am selling to raise funds to purchase the actives.
      Recently purchased from fellow SNAer, here is there advertisement with my photo added.
      Amp is in exactly the same condition.

      Price: $4000
      Item Condition: 9/10
      Reason for selling: NLR see below
      Payment Method: PayID preferred (reliable, instantaneous, traceable and no fees, check with your bank) will also take Cash on collection, bank transfer and Paypal at buyers expense for fees
      Extra Info: Selling my beautiful Moon 340i. Only selling as I am moving towards a DSP based setup and recently purchased a DEQX pre-amp. This means that the exceptional internal pre-amp, DAC and balanced diferential circuitry are all being bypassed at the moment and being wasted. I'd rather let the amp go to someone who needs a top quality integrated solution and free up the cash for a dedicated power amp with a 12v trigger IN that works with the DEQX and reduces the possibility of my wife blowing up my speakers!!
      This is the D2px version in Black, the same version that retails at $10000 with the truly excellent phono stage but with the previous d2 onboard DAC (still excellent but not as good as the d3). I am the second owner from new and the amp is truly in excellent condition with no visible marks, dents or scratches of any kind as far as I can tell. It will be shipped in the original packaging (single box only) and will contain the power cord, manual and remote control.
      I've honestly never owned a finer amplifier, but I'm potentially going to replace with another used Moon power amp anyway. If you are reading this, you probably aware of who Moon are so I won't bore you with my description of how it sounds (so goood....) as there is plenty out there on the web but I have included a couple of useful links below including manual, review, current aussie retailer price etc
