LEAK Stereo 20
Valve Power Amplifier
Introduced in 1958, the British-made Leak Stereo 20 was one of the most popular valve amplifiers of the 1960’s.
Valve complement: 4 x EL84, 3 x ECC83, 1 x GZ34
Source impedances higher than 25,000 ohms will tend to raise the hum level above the advertised figure of 80db below 11 watts. An input of 125mV rms will give a power output of 11 watts.
