It is always gratifying for me to see products I have high regard for get recognized by others, and in this case it is the superb Leben CS-300XS integrated amplifier and the CS-660P power amplifier designed by the gifted Mr. Taku Hyodo, the founder of Leben Hi-Fi Stereo Company, which have received awards from the Polish High Fidelity magazine that has awarded them Best Products status in their Integrated Amp and Power Amp categories, respectively.
For those who are keeping score, the CS-300XS was also a winner of a Gold Medal for 2010 from the prestigious French magazine Diapason.
As a side note, I was contacted earlier this week by a US Hi-Fi industry importer who told me how much he loved the Leben products, and has purchased nearly all of them for his own personal use. He doesn’t have any connection to the importing or sales of Leben in the USA, he just enjoys their exceptional musical performance and quality, just like yours truly, and as such wishes to remain anonymous, but I thought that was really cool for him to share that with me!
Congratulations to Mr. ‘Leben’ Taku Hyodo and to Leben exporter Mr. Yoshi Hontani for yet another round of awards for the splendid Leben products! I’d say it’s safe to conclude that word is getting out about how terrific these Leben products are!
