Gabi Recommends:

The Leak Stereo 230 Integrated Amplifier is the perfect companion to the LEAK CDT CD Player and matches the audio and aesthetics of both the Wharfedale Denton 85 and Wharfedale LINTON 85 speakers like a vintage glove. 

I love the genuinely vintage look of this amplifier. A retro-looking system like this is what my styling dreams are made of.

Manufacturers Details:

Designed to be the perfect match for a wide variety of sources and providing higher levels of amplification, the LEAK STEREO 230 offers a 115W per channel output.

It also offers a newly developed HDMI ARC connectivity function to realise the highest quality audio in AV applications, for a fully equipped integrated amplifier to meet the demands of modern audiophiles and cinephiles.

Engineered With Care:

The LEAK STEREO 230 can be connected to a host of analogue and digital sources, thanks to its diversity of inputs. A built-in Moving Magnet (MM) phono pre-amplifier allows for direct connection to turntable record players.

To fully accommodate the modern-day music enthusiast, much effort has been made to ensure the LEAK STEREO 230’s digital circuitry delivers the level of quality one might expect of a high-performance standalone D/A converter, let alone an integrated amplifier solution.

You can also stream music to the LEAK STEREO 230 from any Bluetooth device, such as portable music players, tablet PCs or smartphones, via the built-in aptX and AAC Bluetooth codec. One can therefore enjoy CD quality audio over the Bluetooth wireless connection.

Carefully designed in line with the LEAK ethos of performance, reliability and craftsmanship, the LEAK STEREO 230 matches contemporary performance with stand-out, classic LEAK styling.

Traditional audiophiles will recognise the assured quality in the high-quality, low-noise turntable input of the LEAK STEREO 230. Optimised for moving magnet cartridges, the JFET-based circuit offers precise RIAA equalisation in accordance with de facto industry standards for vinyl record playback.


The LEAK STEREO 230 uses a dedicated amplifier circuit with current-feedback technology for the headphone output. Equal in performance to standalone headphone amplifiers, beyond the price class of this complete system, the design offers high-speed output signal transition thanks to a high slew rate. The result is a dynamic, detailed and engaging performance with all manner of headphone types.


Utilising the acclaimed ES9038 Sabre32 Reference chip with ESS Technology’s 32-bit HyperStream architecture and Time Domain Jitter Eliminator, the LEAK STEREO 230 offers ultra-low noise, high dynamic range of digital audio files with a sampling rate of up to 384kHz (PCM) and DSD256. ARC DE TRIOMPHE Equipped with an Audio Return Channel (ARC) connection, the LEAK STEREO 230 integrates perfectly for home AV applications, bringing the LEAK Hi-Fi pedigree to your screen, too.

230 is an example of how far the sound quality and versatility of affordable audiophile gear has come in the last few years.
