the journey continues...

Hello again, it's been a while for me not updating any news....busy, system change and everything else.

I've read one quote in one of the Europe hifi review, get a life, get a Leben and for that I got my self a Leben!...yup, the CS600. I've been aimed for this amplifier for a quite a long time...and finally!. It's a truly awesome amplifier, beautiful music, the tone, the fullness. I almost rediscover my music again..there is so much to listen in every cds that I used to listen before.

Norah Jones (yeah..boring and guilty) sounded really awesome. Her voice are so much in the room with lots of presence, the double bass shows its real body..the wood, the flex of the string. Almost the real things...

Next, Angus & Julia Stone (down the way), the recording is superb. Julia voice is so addictive and I recommended this album highly to those who enjoy alt/rock country music. I can't really point of which track is the best..but I do like Big Jet Plane very much.

This system is headed by Tri-CD4SE cd player which I found really revealing. The bad, the good of recording will be made audible clearly. I use to listen to Anneke Gronloh cd which converted from LP. From my previous experience with MF A5, I listen to this cd with ease and joy but not with Tri cdp. The Tri will show the pops, cracks, the distortions of the LP tracking (converted from LP) very very mercy. But on the other side, the good recording will sound as it should and it is way way better than MF A5.

The Zu, what I can shines as always..with Leben, it really does shines to the brightest..awesome!

my very own setup

Jeff Days (ex 6moons reviewer) quoted that this is the amplifier that he will use for a life time and he does own this. In one review of one user comparing with Shindo amp (similarly priced). The session was made in two groups, the hifi enthusiasts and the musicians..the hifi enthusiast contemplating in choosing which one to pick, but chose Shindo in the end, but the musicians straight away picked the Leben as a winner without hesitation. You got the picture, I hope...


  1. Bro, May I know where you bought Leben CS600? Can't find distributor in Malaysia. Do they have 230V version as I know they might need separate step up transformer due to Japan 110V power rating. Thanks for replying.

  2. unfortunately you got to make your way down to Singapore. It's 230v...
