Objects for an Ideal Home #3
Hand-assembled and point-to-point wired Japanese tube amplifier - model: Leben CS-600 designed by Mr. Taku Hyodo, founder of and chief designer for Japanese Leben Hi-Fi Stereo Company.
Four transformers - adding considerably to the weight of more than 22 kilos.
Four EL34 output tubes from the German producer RFT branded 'Philips'.
Four 6CS7 tubes. Present configuration is American General Electric & Canadian Marconi tubes.
Leben is a German loan-word that translates into 'to live', 'to be alive' or simply 'to exist', which initially struck me as rather Haruki Murakami-esque.
