THE Welsh company Leema Acoustics, founded by former BBC engineers in 1998, will release a new range of hi-fi products this weekend. Fully conceived, engineered and built in the company’s Welshpool factory in Powys, Wales, the Quantum line comprises the new Electron CD player, Positron streamer, Neutron DAC/preamp and Graviton power amp.
“The new-look full-width product range has been painstakingly developed under the watchful eye of Leema Acoustics’ co-founder Lee Taylor, and is priced at around £1,500-£1,700,” according to the press release.
“Central to the range is the new Neutron and Graviton pre/power. The Neutron DAC/preamp benefits from an MM/MC phono stage, multi-input DAC, plus both balanced and unbalanced inputs, while the Graviton offers 150 watts (8 ohms) of Class A/B power.
“The Electron CD player features an ES9018 Sabre DAC and benefits from coaxial digital and headphone outputs. Full details of the new Quantum range are set to be announced in the coming months as full production starts.”
All Leema products are hand-made in Wales using UK- and European-sourced components. The company’s product range encompasses electronics, loudspeakers and cables.
