Coversion of existing Leak pre-amplifier to passive.

Made with high quality 99.99% pure silver wire.


This listing is for the work required to convert your own Leak pre amplifier into a passive unit and does not include the pre amplifier. You will either need to use your own, or purchase one from either myself, or elsewhere.

Any one who owns any of the Leak pre amplifiers will know how poor sounding that they really are. Even if you spend loads of money on special components, they still sound poor. This is mainly due to the EF86 tubes that these pre amplifiers use.

So, after years or wondering what to do about this, I finally came up with an idea. Convert them to passive. This is done by removing the old circuit board and valves plus all the old wiring.

Owners of Leak power amplifiers will know that they need very little gain for full output and using a conventional pre amplifier can mean that they are playing at full volume with just one or two clicks on the dial, which can be most frustrating, especially for the neighbours, that's why the Leak amplifiers work superbly with passive devices.

What I am offering is a conversion of your existing Leak pre-amplifier into a passive one.

I use only the finest components for this modification, including 1mm 99.99% pure silver wire with PTFE insulation throughout as well as high quality Alps stepped attenuators and Rhodium plated phono sockets. All electrical joints are made using silver solder.

The pre amp has 2 outputs,in case some one wants to bi-amp or even bi-wire.This pre-amplifier has 4 inputs.

Most of the controls are for decoration purposes only and do not work. To remove these would make the pre amplifier look rather odd! The only knobs that work are the top far right (volume) and top left (switch). This has been done to retain the Classic look of this control amplifier.

This particular one is being sent to Hifi World magazine to be reviewed, so is not for sale.

Please remember, the buy it now price is for the modification to your existing Leak pre-amplifier and not for the actual one listed.

These little beauties have to be heard to be believed and any one who wants to pop over and have a listen is most welcome. You will not be dissapointed.

Postage in the UK will be 14 GBP by next day delivery or 12 GBP by 48

The buy it now price is £299.00 + postage. You will need to supply your own pre amplifier if you want this modificatiion doing, however I can supply one for additional costs. Price will depend on condition of donor unit supplied by us. Mono units can also be converted to stereo, but they will only have 3 inputs.

I accept cash, cheques in pounds sterling, bank transfers and Paypal.

I always package well, so the goods should arrive as you see them in the pictures.

I expect contact within 3 working days, or otherwise I reserve the right to relist the item or offer to the next highest bidder.

I always give appropriate feedback.

Good luck.
