Thank you all. I have had a passion for music since i could remember and this is a culmination of 35 years and it is proof that you do not need to be wealthy to enjoy this passion.


Beautiful system! Been a long time Leben and Core Audio fan, great job.


Now that is a system! That Leben preamp is audioporn of the highest order I've always lusted after it. And that Jadis dac must sound rich and musical in fact the whole system must right up to those gorgeous Italian speaker. Well done zaphod!



The sound is indeed captivating!


Pretty sharp looking system you have there. All near-reference gear too. Must have a real captivating sound.
