I live in Brooklyn, which is noisy, but late at night, tucked in behind Prospect Park, as I am here,

it is quiet.  

 

Great to hear that =) Do you know what version you have - what output resistors in the HP circuit?

I found them a bit difficult to deal with since they wouldn't sell me one directly even though the closest dealer to me was 7 hours away in Cleveland. So I bought mine used.

I had a somewhat different experience.  I found them easy to deal with.  I live in the SF Bay Area and Tone Imports put me in contact with a dealer in LA.  Through the LA dealer I had the amp shipped to me directly from Japan.  It only took about 5 weeks from first contact to unboxing the amp.  As ever, YMMV.

Edit: Does CS300 has similar packaging?

Yes. Same box but smaller.

No box for power chord though :)

Does anyone know if a Leben cs300 will work with ecc82?

I know the gain will be like 70% so the volume must be set higher or?

But will auto bias and all the techs fit so I won't break anything?

It is better to ask Leben just to be sure. Mr Yoshi Hontani email is y-hontani@musonpro.com. Please keep us posted when you find out.
