It's the hot syrup!!!!!!!!

 

The name is galaktobureko, here's Wikipedia's definition

 

Galaktobureko (Greek: γαλακτομπούρεκο) is a Greek dessert of semolina-based custard in phyllo. It may be made in a pan, with phyllo layered on top and underneath, or rolled into individual servings (often approximately 10 cm long). It is served or coated with a clear, sweet syrup. The custard may be flavored with lemon, orange or rose.

The Leben (300 I would assume) is every bit as you describe. The Leben CS600, the one I now own, compared to the CS300XS, the model I used to own, sounds like the 300 x .5. To me the 600 does not sound twice the sound 300 signature as you describe. In fact when I switch from Glenn's 300B mono blocks to the Leben (I amp roll more than tube roll and have a lack of describing sound, unlike Ultra- who has a knack for it--had to do it: Lack KNack) the 600 is too colored. But when my ears settle in on it, then it is a wonderful experience. When I switch back to the 300B mono blocks, it sounds flat, but when the settle in, it is cleaner and more focused. The lows are there and the highs too--and yes the mids are wonderful. I'd say that if photographs were amps, the Leben would be HDR and Glenn's mb would be the original photograph. IMO. And mind you, that is when I switch from the Leben to the Glenn Amp.

 

When all is said and done, I love them both (otherwise I would own just one amp) and I am captured by the sound I am enveloped in at the moment. Like switching from Baroque to Bluegrass: it's the artists' artistry that moves me once I sink into that couch of mine.

 

:thumb: I really like this account... thanks, Clayton SF!
