View Full Version : Speakers for Leben Cs300, 15W output

19-05-2012, 09:07 AM
Hi All,

I only needed to start looking for new speakers for my Leben amp (had mishap with current speakers). The Leben has relative small 15 w output and therefore needs relative sencitive speakers. I am taken by the Harbeth design and am currently looking for a local dealer. (New Zealand) to listen to them.

I am however interested to see if anybody on this forum has experience with the Leben and any of the Harbeth speakers?

Looking forward to hear from you:)

Search recent thread on this very topic. I enjoy the combination of Harbeth C7ES3 and Leben CS300XS in my 12'x12'x9' room. I listen primarily to jazz, vocals and chamber music.

I have compared this combination to an LFD Mk IV which I prefer for full symphony. If you have a larger room, listen at loud levels and gravitate towards symphonic music or rock you may want to consider a more powerful amp.

Hi Gidion27.
Your local dealer is Parmenter Sound and the fellow's name is Jason.

Jason will fill you in on the Harbeth model line.

cheers, Noel.

thank you for your reply.

My listening room is the same size as yours but I listen mainly at low volumes to Blues, Ska and Reggea.

Thanks and cheers for the advice

The 15w of Leben is quite capable. The other day 2 friends were very surprised by Michael Jackson's Billie Jean. The dynamics and bass even from tiny P3ESRs when pushed can be quite good.
