mate don't you ever just sit down and listen to the kit you've already got for anything more than a couple of months lol.

Not planning any purchases but I'm a curious individual :)

Believe it or not but having a stable setup with no big changes in close to 4 months. It's the first time it happened.

I remember it was PP who first got me interested in Leema. At that point I was thinking it probably isn't the kind of a sound I'm after.

Then came Roksan, Naim, Densen, now Hegel. It feels like Leema could be in the same ballpark.

I like the idea of the company, their background and provenance. Unfortunately, on the three occasions I’ve heard them, only a the Bristol shows, though they select a room on the top floor away from everyone else, I’ve never actually liked what I heard.

I’d look at ATC electronics if you want British made quality, though dealers are quite thin on the ground.
No doubt, nopiano, it was an all Leema set-up. This is where my logic and reasoning stops. I've never heard their CDPs, streamers or speakers.

Leema CDPs and speakers have always had mixed reviews from this mag and other hi-fi reads. Based on that, can't comment either way.

Think you know what I'm going to say about their products. However, I'm not sure many other things in life that are so personal. Each brand has its own slant on what we call music reproduction. Leema certainly tugs my rug.

Insider should blag a dem of a Leema amp with some PMCs and see how it grabs him.

I would guess, from what I've read on here many, many times, that Leema are closer than most integrated amps to a good active speaker, in terms of timing, detail and imaging. Have to stress, though, it is purely a hunch.

Thanks for your input guys. Got a little spot the difference competition for you. First Pic taken a day before yesterday. Second, this morning...

Hint it is not part of the day...

To be honest, I was just knocking a certain thread off the top of the “late night pile” that’s in the wrong section anyway - there was nothing else I could reply to *biggrin*
Never mind that, who's buying medication this morning? Or fish? ;-)

The blank space on the top shelf of your rack is now occupied! Not sure what it is though... Leema amp by any chance? *smile* I guess the empty box is the clue.

Are you holding your phone upside down? *biggrin*

Doug, I see you edited your reply. Quite! Getting warmer... Would you like a close up? Or are you going to take a guess?

You Google, you... Wow, yes it is. I thought I'll get to tease with more pictures *dance4*

Here's what would've followed. Again in just a bit better quality.

You made it too easy Insider *smile* Haven't been up long, shift worker, so that was with sleepy eyes too.

Looking forward to your review, I'm sure it will be interesting... they usually are.

Wow, the Anniversary edition, bought or on loan?

I'm a big Leema fan, although I don't own any yet, I keep making PP cheeky offers for his Tucana *wink* it'll have to be second hand for me, if I can find one...

It is a loan. Like I said earlier I'm a curious individual.

At this point I should credit Rick at Musicraft who offered to do it
Many thanks Rick.
