The Eclipse is clearly a remarkable speaker, but it won’t perform like one with just any old amplifier; the Leema is fundamental to the result. It suggests as much with a number of other speakers, too. Add to this the serious build and finish, the massive feature count, and the sheer power, and you have an amplifier for all seasons. It pays to find a good speaker match and I would recommend warmer rather than leaner tonal balances on that front, but two out of the three speakers I tried worked rather well indeed, which is a good sign. If you’re looking for that balance of speed, power, and transparency that so few amps can deliver, the Leema Tucana II Anniversary could be just the ticket.
