Leben CS300XS - Mullard EL84 QUAD upgrade with Amperex quad spare

Will Ship To: Anywhere

This amplifier was bought by myself in May this year from Jordan Acoustics in the United Kingdom for £2,800. It is a United Kingdom voltage model (220v)- and is still under warranty with Jordan Acoustics (see image above). This is the top model which has upgraded power components and is higher spec.

I upgraded the tubes to a vintage NOS Mullard EL84 set - QUAD matched - which cost me £500 on top of the price (these are better than new ratings and perfectly matched - extremely hard to get now, even Leben don't sell them with Mullard vintage tubes anymore). I also have a spare matched set of EL84's by AMPEREX under the Harmon Kardon name. These cost £250 for the quad set, I will include these as well.

The original box is included and it will be shipped securely.

This amplifier has only been tested to check it is working, but I travel a lot with my job and recently moved house and bought a $10k Krell amplifier with new custom made speakers. I have too much audio equipment and I need to clear some of it out. This amplifier is completely unmarked, and in pristine condition. unmarked. If you are pairing up with speakers, I recommend high sensitivity 90dBa+ to get the most volume.

Audiophiles love this amplifier for headphones as it can power even the most demanding of headphones such as the HiFi MAN HE6's. it can deliver a lot of wattage to the headphone socket ! incredible!

I will ship worldwide, but you are responsible for changing the voltage as it wont work in countries with 110v, unless you modify it internally or use a step down/up box.

So to clarify, the auction includes

The Leben CS300XS with a set of Mullard EL84 perfectly matched QUAD tubes already installed NOS/better than new ratings (what a beautiful sound they are too!), and a spare set of Amperex EL84's QUAD. Both of these are carefully matched for this amplifier and have been tested to work perfectly.

This has cost me around £3,500 and has been only tested to work perfectly. You could end up with a bargain. im listing elsewhere, so dont waste time asking if you are interested.

Shipping in the United Kingdom will be with DHL express, tracked, insured and tracking will be sent immediately and attached to the ebay transaction. I will ship worldwide, but it wont be free, and I will only use a good quality tracked service such as DHL. this weighs 15kg, so shipping won't be cheap. I will work with the buyer to ensure the best possible price but do NOT ask me to use an untracked cheap service, that wont be happening. If you want a price for shipping, send me a message with your country and post code, I will try and get back to you within the same day.

if you buy and pay by bank transfer I will reduce the final price to give you the money that paypal would charge me for the transfer/sale. Your choice. I DO NOT ship to unverified addresses or to your grandmother in Nigeria, I know all the con moves, such as W.union etc, so please don't waste time.
Financially I have no 'need' to sell this, so no low ballers. I would rather hang onto it than sell for a ridiculous price.

If you have no feedback or poor feedback contact me before bidding or trying a purchase. This item is very hard to get and worth a lot of money.

If only you would have mentioned this before I purchased my Audio Research pre-amp and Mark Levinson-clone power amp... Well well, dear Leben, we'll meet again, some other time...
