Leben follows an alternative path that aims to a target of musical research instead of looking for an exclusive circuital choice or a particular passive component. A research that is not standardized in a modern audiophile world where everything seems to perform in a uniform or at least alike way.

Three-chassis amplification can be considered a goal for every audiophile enthusiast. AM Audio B-80 monoblocks are a clear example of this commitment. An Italian example of technical exercise entirely dedicated to pursue a sound that respects the original audio signal.

So dynamic to reach the stars, so elegant and natural, great tone, no roughness or sharpness at all: are they really Wilson? They are, indeed. A label on the back says Wilson Audio...

I find this amplifier very interesting from a listening point of view. It has shown a great synergy with the other components of my home system and without requiring any change in the set-up.

The beautiful listening experience and the great path for the fine-tuning, prove how much care and passion is essential for an audio system to perform at best.

I think that the OTL technology, if properly made, can put together the purity and the transparency of the single-ended triodes with the power of the transistors, and the result is a splendid blending between dynamic force and naturalness in the emission.

If you want to catch the nuances and the outstanding parameters, such as the harmonic rendering, the correctness of the tone, the reconstruction of the musical soundstage, maybe a transformer preamplifier could be the panacea and, in the case of the Zanden Model 3000, the end of all games. You cannot just start all over again!

Most phono preamps, in comparison with the King, seem to be a bit phony, affected and artificial, somehow even electrified and noisy: maybe they can embellish, underline something, but finally they appear less natural. You realize that by reconnecting the King to your system.
