When LEAK launched the iconic STEREO 30 in 1963, it swiftly became Britain’s favourite ‘step-up’ from the standard budget amplifiers of the time.
Now, in the year 2020, LEAK harnesses the latest technology to deliver an affordable integrated amplifier of the same philosophy, the STEREO 130 – fully equipped to meet the demands of modern music lovers, from vinyl records to digital streaming.
The LEAK STEREO 130 is high performance, high-fidelity integrated amplifier for the modern-day audio enthusiast. It is designed to be the perfect match to a wide variety of both analogue and digital sources, thanks to its diversity of inputs. It has a built-in Moving Magnet (MM) phono pre-amplifier which allows for direct connection to turntable record players. You can also stream music to the LEAK STEREO 130 from any Bluetooth device such as portable music players and smartphones via innovative built-in aptX and AAC codec. One can enjoy CD quality audio over the Bluetooth wireless connection.
To accommodate the modern-day music enthusiast fully, much effort has been made to ensure the LEAK STEREO 130 ’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.
Carefully designed in line with the LEAK ethos of performance, reliability and craftsmanship, the LEAK STEREO 130 matches contemporary performance with stand-out, classic LEAK styling.
LEAK STEREO 130是面向現代音頻發燒友的高性能，高保真集成放大器。由於其輸入的多樣性，它被設計為與各種模擬和數字信號源的完美匹配。它具有一個內置的動磁（MM）唱機前置放大器，可以直接連接到唱機唱機。您還可以通過創新的內置aptX和AAC編解碼器將音樂從任何藍牙設備（例如便攜式音樂播放器和智能手機）流式傳輸到LEAK STEREO 130。可以通過藍牙無線連接欣賞CD品質的音頻。
為了充分滿足現代音樂發燒友的需求，已經做出了很多努力，以確保LEAK STEREO 130的數字電路達到人們可能期望的高性能獨立D / A轉換器的質量水平，更不用說集成放大器解決方案了。 。
精心設計以符合LEAK的性能，可靠性和工藝精神，LEAK STEREO 130將現代性能與出色的經典LEAK風格相匹配。
Traditional audiophiles will recognise the assured quality in the high-quality, low-noise turntable input of the LEAK STEREO 130. Optimised for moving magnet cartridges, the JFET-based circuit offers precise RIAA equalisation in accordance with de facto industry standards for vinyl record playback.
The LEAK STEREO 130 uses a dedicated amplifier circuit with current-feedback technology for the headphones output. Equal in performance to standalone headphone amplifiers, beyond the price-class of this complete system, the design offers high-speed output signal transition thanks to a high slew rate. The result is a dynamic, detailed and engaging performance with all manner of headphone types.
CONVERSION WITHOUT COMPROMISE:
Utilising the acclaimed ES9018 Sabre32 Reference chip with ESS Technology’s 32-bit HyperStream architecture and Time Domain Jitter Eliminator, the LEAK STEREO 130 offers ultra-low noise, high dynamic range of digital audio files with a sampling rate of up to 384kHz (PCM) and DSD256.
DIRECT AND TONE CONTROL:
The LEAK STEREO 130 incorporates LEAK ’s signature DIRECT switch to bypass steps in the analogue circuitry, for the purest signal path. In addition, the signature BASS and TREBLE tone controls allow for customisation of the amplifier output signal to suit your music medium and matched electronics or loudspeakers.
