My favorite tube combination in my CS300SX is a pair of Sylvania 5751s (black plate, windmill getter) and a quad of Mullard EL84s.

So far my experience with Leben CS300 has been really awesome, both the speaker and headphone section of the amp are top notch. With my old Tannoy SRM 12X, the bass is tighter, much more deep, on all vocal songs the voice is more forward and it really make you feel the singer is right in front of you. I never heard such great bass from my tannoy since i parted with my old copland 402.

 

I have a pair of   Sylvania 5751 black plate, i wil try to put it in my leben tonight and see how it goes. So far i definitely become a fan of Leben, i'm thinking about getting their phonobox as well, are they any good compare to Ear 834P? Thanks

Hallo,
Does anybody have experience with Leben cs 300 ( any Model, but especially F) in combination with Abyss 1266?
Will it be strong enough to drive the Abyss?
Hoe about the HE6?
Many thanks for reply!
Tom

It is always better to have someone edit your work before you post it.

 

"Tubes in the Leben CS300XS: Golden Lion EL34 and RCA Wurlitzer Black 12AX7 (neither original)."

Your Leben has EL84 tubes, not EL34...whoops!
