Command Performance A/V, DeVore, Luxman, J. Sikora, Aurender, Transparent | CAF 2019

By | November 7th, 2019|Categories: Part-Time Audiofile|Tags: , , , , , , , , , |

I spend a lot of time at these shows talking about the Big Audio Rooms such as Von Schweikert/VAC, Wilson Audio and The Voice That Is!, but Jeff Fox of Command Performance A/V is quietly joining that exclusive club of rooms that are must-sees in terms of sheer scope and great sound. Jeff and his Command Performance room tied for Best Sound at Show at RMAF with Joseph Audio, Doshi Audio and J. Sikora, but this time he gathered an even more ambitious system in a much larger room that featured the amazing DeVore Fidelity Orangutan Reference speakers, Luxman, Aurender and once again the exciting new turntables of J.… Read the full article

I’ve known DeVore Fidelity’s John DeVore a long time. Luxman America President Jeff Sigmund, too. I’ve reviewed a few of their products—DeVore and Luxman. These guys are salt of the earth. They’ve got tradition, they love music, they have a desire to create, a desire to serve.

Not to get all lofty here, but it’s good to know there are still true artists and great people at the core of the audiophile/hi-fi business. And while their room, presented by Jeff Fox’s Command Performance AV of Falls Church, VA, featured DeVore’s most expensive speakers and the new Luxman CL-1000 Preamplifier, which retails for $19,995, other products by these companies can be had for decent money.… Read the full article

Luxman MQ-88uC Stereo Power Amplifier

Luxman MQ-88uC Stereo Power Amplifier

In the pantheon of Japanese audio companies, Luxman holds a place of honor for significant contributions to the audio arts over many decades. In fact, several years ago it celebrated its 90th anniversary. What is not so well known is that Luxman has been manufacturing tube amplifiers continuously since 1961. I don’t know of any other audio company that can equal that track record. Luxman had the foresight in the mid-1970s to hire Tim de Paravicini as a design engineer. In particular, one of his designs, the MB-3045 monoblock, is one of my all-time favorites.… Read the full article

Luxman PD-151 Turntable

By | August 22nd, 2019|Categories: AV Hub|

Over the past 28 years, Japanese high-end manufacturer Luxman has released only four turntables. It has now released its fifth—a belt-drive model, the Luxman PD-151. [Pictured above and below, click images to enlarge.]

The Luxman PD-151 has an under-slung, suspended structure, with components mounted on the underneath of the top panel chassis, which the company claims eliminates the influence of vibrations from the supporting surface. The 10mm thick, machined aluminium top panel provides a rigid base for the moving parts and the heavyweight 4.0kg platter that rotates on a high-precision stainless steel centre spindle, a PEEK thrust bearing and a brass radial bearing.… Read the full article

Alma Music, Wilson, Luxman, MSB, Innuos | T.H.E. Show 2019

By | June 27th, 2019|Categories: Part-Time Audiofile|Tags: , , , , , , , , , |

Alex Siufy of Alma Music and Audio in San Diego had a very strong presence at T.H.E. Show 2019 with multiple exhibit rooms. I previously mentioned how wonderful the latest generation of Wilson Audio loudspeakers sounded in Long Beach, and two of the three pairs from Utah were in Alex’s rooms. When I visited Alex at his store last fall and covered the Dan D’Agostino Relentless debut and the YG Acoustics Sonja XV loudspeakers, I barely noticed any Wilson Audio product on the sales floor–probably because I was so entranced by the sound in Alma Audio’s “big room.” Perhaps Alex has come to the same conclusion I have about the “new” Wilson Audio sound, a sound that’s more human and warm and embraceable– for me, anyways.… Read the full article
