The Return Of A Legend.

In 1979, LEAK disappeared from the production lines. The brand was pushed into obscurity to become a mere memory and ‘cherished’ brand of yesteryear.

After over 40 years LEAK returns with a fresh take on traditional British stereo design with 2 unique pieces, the Stereo 130 amplifier & CDT transport.
