At this price, someone's got a bargain and a good investment!
PS: Unless one needs the extra power and flexibility (i.e. Pre-out), the Leben CS600 is not a better unit than the CS300X. An interesting read can be found on http://www.positive-feedback.com/Issue43/leben.htm.
All the best to the new owner!
I think you've hit the nail squarely on the head regarding "incomplete measurements".
I guess the key question has to be, "what are the required measurements?"
Clearly the group in question didn't know what they were, or they wouldn't have come to the conclusion they did. I've yet to see any magazine that could reliability predict how say an amplifier might sound based purely upon measurements.
Those are beautiful. Thanks Paul.
I have been offered a Tri TRV845 SE valve amp, which is really tempting. Will check if it will drive these, as only 20w Class A. Alternatively it's a Mastersound Due Venti or PrimaLuna.
Looked at the Kralk this morning, as remember their lovely finish and sound from last years show. Brand new with bass stands for £800 but wonder if they would work in my room.
