I'm a huge Manley fan and just found this site. Not sure how you do it, but it can't be all-bad to introduce my self. I have been using Manley gear for the last 4 years. First I got the Snappers, used with a Leben RS-28CX preamp: great synergy. However, the Neo-Classic 300B preamp was an object of desire. And it bested the Leben, and stayed ☺ And, a week ago I also got a pair of Neo-Classic 300B SE/PP monoblocks. I can’t believe what I hear in single ended use: powerful, dynamic and funky music. Together with the 300B preamp it present an enormous soundstage.

Musicophile : Welcome to AA !
I feel less alone now with my 300B preamp !
I use it with various amps including the Snappers and it is a wonderful preamp.
Which speakers do you use ?
Feel free to post a pic of your system : we love pics !

Thanks guys

I listen to a pair of Tannoy Prestige Kensington SE. I just love Tannoy. Actually it was Tannoy speakers that I decided to build my system around. And, then I started to read on about gear that is known to match with Tannoy. I read about EveAnna’s system, and made an appointment with a dealer to demo Manley and Tannoy. I was totally hooked!

The biggest surprise with the Neo-Classic 300B SE/PP is how well they drive Kensington. Kensington is 93dB, so it is not that sensitive. However, it seems that they have an easy impedance curve.

It doesn't seem that the posting rules let me attach pictures yet. I have to post 5 replies on already established threads before I may, or?
