Long Live British Hi-Fi: Retro-Styled Leak Stereo 230 Integrated Amplifier Features Robust Connectivity and SABRE DAC, Delivers 75Wpc Output

The successful relaunch of one of British audio’s most beloved companies continues with the Leak Stereo 230 integrated amplifier. Building off the design of the firm’s Stereo 130, this 28-pound unit offers 75Wpc output (into eight ohms) and a host of connectivity to accommodate users who want a versatile high-end component for both music and movies. Two analog inputs accompany an MM phono input, two SPDIF inputs, a USB-B input, and HDMI ARC connection for high-def TVs. Stereo 230 invites you to enjoy everything from high-res streams to LPs to blockbuster films in exceptional fidelity. 

Elegantly retro in appearance, Stereo 230 boasts a powerful amplification section and low-distortion preamplifier section that combine to process signals with care and clarity. A SABRE ES9038Q2M DAC accommodates up to 768kHz PCM and DSD512. You can also stream music to Stereo 230 via its built-in aptX and AAC Bluetooth codecs. Want to listen in private? A headphone output is also here. So is a 12V trigger so you can integrate Stereo 230 into your existing setup with minimal fuss.

Measuring 5.8 x 16.3 x 12.9 inches (HWD), Stereo 230 also comes with a remote control and wood-accented aesthetics that practically scream “long live British hi-fi.”

"[The] 230 is an example of how far the sound quality and versatility of affordable audiophile gear has come in the last few years. ...[We] didn't hear a $1500 product; [we] heard a well-designed product regardless of price."
