Description

Building upon the class and style that made the STEREO 130 a rip-roaring success, the LEAK STEREO 230 adds more power, more functionality and more substance for the discerning audiophile.

Designed to be the perfect match for a wide variety of sources and provide higher levels of amplification, the LEAK STEREO 230 offers a 115w per channel output.

Add the Leak CDT matching transport for high quality CD playback.

It also offers a newly developed HDMI ARC connectivity function to realise the highest quality audio in AV applications, for a fully equipped integrated amplifier to meet the demands of modern audiophiles and cinephiles.

The LEAK STEREO 230 can be connected to a host of analogue and digital sources, thanks to its diversity of inputs. A built-in Moving Magnet (MM) phono pre-amplifier allows for direct connection to turntable record players.

To fully accommodate the modern-day music enthusiast, much effort has been made to ensure the LEAK STEREO 230’s digital circuitry delivers the level of quality one might expect of a high-performance standalone D/A converter, let alone an integrated amplifier solution.

You can also stream music to the LEAK STEREO 230 from any Bluetooth device, such as portable music players, tablet PCs or smartphones, via the built-in aptX and AAC Bluetooth codec. One can therefore enjoy CD quality audio over the Bluetooth wireless connection.

Carefully designed in line with the LEAK ethos of performance, reliability and craftsmanship, the LEAK STEREO 230 matches contemporary performance with stand-out, classic LEAK styling.
