Luxman LX-380 Integrated

By | November 24th, 2018|Categories: Positive Feedback|Tags: , |

The image above is presented as proof of my credentials for reviewing vacuum tube integrated amplifiers. The photo of my younger son was taken two decades ago sitting next to the Air Tight Acoustic Masterpiece M-101 integrated amplifier (audioMusings Issue 6, 1998 HERE). The infant is now a grown man and moved on to pursue his fortune in the world. I wish him peace and happiness.

Luxman M-05 power amplifier

By | November 8th, 2018|Categories: Stereophile|

Japanese audiophiles venerate American high-end audio components, paying huge sums for vintage Marantz tube amplifiers, racks of Levinson ML-2s, and early Audio Research tube preamplifiers. The balance of trade, at the high end anyway, hasn’t been reciprocated: Japanese high-end amplifiers and preamplifiers have not received as positive a reception in the US. Perhaps it was a matter of styling, but the sonics of the Sony Esprit line and the class-A Stax amplifiers did not receive the following they might have, had the products been American.… Read the full article

Listening #189: Luxman MQ-88uSE

By | August 28th, 2018|Categories: Stereophile|

For this month’s column, I did something I’ve occasionally set out to do but never quite managed: I lived with a new power amplifier for nearly two months, used it to enjoy a variety of records, made scads of listening notes, and wrote most of the subjective portion of my review—all without knowing what was inside it.

From the time the Luxman MQ-88uSE arrived at my house until I sat down to write these opening paragraphs, I knew only the following: It uses tubes for voltage and current gain—the latter accomplished with two KT88 pentodes per channel—but not for power-supply rectification; it’s built on a spartan and decidedly old-school chassis, its vitals protected from people, and vice versa, by a removable tube cage; it was made in a limited edition of 100 units (the SE in the model designation stands for Special Edition; a similar amp, the MQ-88uC, will take its place in the line when all of these are sold); and its retail price is $5995 (USD).… Read the full article

Luxman L-550AXII Integrated Amplifier Review

Luxman L-550AXII integrated amplifier

By Steve Folberg

Long before the Luxman L-550AXII ever graced my door, there was a stereo system. I bought my first real system just out of graduate school in 1985: a Systemdek turntable (with a glass platter and the worst suspension system ever slapped into a turntable), a used Linn Basik tonearm with some long forgotten Audioquest cartridge, a PS Audio Elite Plus integrated amp, and a pair of the original Vandersteen 2C loudspeakers, bi-wired with some fat, ugly, Monster Cable speaker wire scattered all over the floor.… Read the full article

Luxman L-509X integrated amplifier

By | May 3rd, 2018|Categories: Stereophile|

We’re well past the day when the sound of top-tier tube amplifiers can be described as “syrupy” or “too warm” or producing “soft bass.” Equally true, solid-state designs have reached a level of maturity at which “sweetness,” “fluidity,” and “flow” are similarly applicable descriptors, thus smashing the cliché of “cold transistor sound.”

One high-end audio manufacturer, resourceful in both tube and solid-state designs, has weathered selloffs, acquisitions, and fickle audiophile demands to create beautiful, enduring audio art under a name synonymous with Japanese high-end audio supremacy: Luxman.… Read the full article
