  1. Hi This is actually a reply to another SN member's review of his Luxman 509X Int Amp. After replying, I thought it would be nice to share it with other SN members. Just my thoughts on the three Luxman amps I have owned over the last few years. I have been lucky enough in the last few years to have own the 550AX Class A as my first Luxman Int Amp, then due to a house move, needed more power, I got the 590AXII Class A, now living most of my time in Thailand, I am enjoying the 509X Class AB. I have also listened to the 507uX Class AB extensively. My gear from the 550AX to 590AXII and 509X haven't changed - Macbook > JRiver or Roon App > Chord Hugo TT DAC (Cable = Audioquest Diamond USB from Mac to Hugo TT) > every Luxman Amp (Cables = MIT SL8 RCA interconnects) > Spendor D7 SPEAKERS (Cables MIT SL 9). Quick rating of each amp: 1. 550AX Class A 20 watts pc. (Build - 8) - (Look - 10 - if you like the Retro style) - (Power/Drive - 8 - ONLY if you have a small room, efficient speakers & don't listen loud) - (Clarity/Details - 7) - (Quietness - 7) - (Soul/Emotion - 8) 2. 590AXII Class A 30 watts pc. (Build - 9) - (Look - 10 - if you like the Retro style) - (Power/Drive - 8 - ONLY if you have a small/medium room & efficient speakers) - (Clarity/Details - 8) - (Quietness - 8) - (Soul/Emotion - 9) 3. 509X Class AB 120 watts pc. (Build - 9.5) - (Look - 10 - if you like the Retro style) - (Power/Drive - 9.5 - Most room sizes and most speakers) - (Clarity/Details - 9.5) - (Quietness - 9.5) - (Soul/Emotion - 8) Quick summary of each amp: 1. 550AX Class A 20 watts pc. Fantastic Class A Int Amp. Low power, which leads to other limitations. Only buy if you don't have enough money to buy the 590AXII for more Power and Soul/Emotion. 2. 590AXII Class A 30 watts pc. Great Class A Int Amp. Still low power for larger rooms. BUT simply amazing tones that ooze Soul and Emotion especially in vocals and acoustic music. Luxman Class A Masterpiece. 3. 509X Class AB 120 watts pc. Stunning Class AB Int Amp. Tons of power and punch. So quiet, so much details, so clean, etc. Only negative against the 590AXII - doesn't have that Luxman Class A Soul and Emotion. Against Class AB Amp in this price range, the 509X has very few to no rivals. My "Ultimate" Amp: *A Luxman because of the build quality, features and acceptable price. Compared to nearest & equal rival, Accuphase, Luxmans are a bargain. *A Luxman Class A Int Amp for the tone, soul and emotions that they produce. *A Luxman Class A 60 watts pc Int Amp!! - maybe impossible and imagine the heat! Play more music! To the 2 SN members who bought my 550AX and 590AXII, hope you are enjoying them. Photos of 550AX, 590AXII and 509X
  2. Further information: FS a very nice vintage Luxman integrated amplifier with built in phono. Two phono inputs and 3 Aux inputs. Please look at photos. One knob missing a piece. Can connect upto 4 speakers. Can also be used as preamplifier. Also listed in the classifieds on SNA is a matching Luxman Tuner T-300V and PD370 turntable. Other equipment in the photos are for illustration purposes only and are not part of the asking price for the Luxman integrated amplifier. Happy to discuss a combined price for the Integrated, TT snd Tuner if a buyer is interested in putting together a matching vintage system. Can deliver within 50kms of Sydney CBD. Can also be used as a Headphone amplifier as this is built in. Photos:
  3. SOLD on FB pending payment. ------------------------------------------- Further information: Lovely Luxman Tuner T-300V This is part of a vintage system that I am downsizing as I have 3 systems. I also have the matching Luxman PD370 turntable (also listed for sale on SNA) and Luxman 507X integrated amplifier so someone can put together a nice vintage system. Please note that other equipment depicted in the photos are for illustration purposes only and are not part of the sale price of the Luxman Tuner. Happy to negotiate a bundle price for all Luxman components if there is interest to buy the TT, Tuner and Integrated in one lot. Photos:
  4. Further information: Classic hybrid MOSFET/valve amp from the early '90s. I have thoroughly checked it and run it having pulled it out from storage. All inputs work and all switches and knobs operate and are quiet. And it sounds wonderful ( tested on a pair of JBL L60T). It comes with the instruction book (a little dog-eared) and original packaging (7/10 it has been doing it's job keeping the amp safe in transit and storage and shows some wear and tear). The amp has a couple of cosmetic defects as shown in the photos - scratches on the top right side of the front panel, other minor blemishes, and a small chip out of the plastic shroud around a red speaker terminal. Hence I give it a 8/10 rating. Power output: 105 watts per channel into 8Ω (stereo) Frequency response: 20Hz to 20kHz Total harmonic distortion: 0.008% Input sensitivity: 0.15mV (MC), 2mV (MM), 150mV (line) Signal to noise ratio: 70dB (MC), 90dB (MM), 110dB (line) I am happy to ship with a little extra packaging. Seems to be about 80 within mainland Australia with insurance via Aussie Post. Happy to work with a nominated freight company as long as you pay. Photos:
  5. Item: Luxman L-80 or L80 V, or any other similar pre-Alpine Luxman amp Price Range: $1000 Item Condition: New or Used Extra Info: I am looking to provide a loving stable new home for a vintage integrated amplifier. . Please don't forget to report your post as FOUND when possible. (You can now delete this text).
  6. Further information: I purchased this luscious-sounding Class A/B 110wpc integrated amplifier from SNA in 2018. It's condition is unchanged - there are scrape marks along the side panels, which look to be from bumping against uprights when being put into a tight rack, which are not visible when it is in a rack. There are a couple of upper edge dents on the facia, where it looks like someone has dropped something onto the face - but you won't notice these, because you will be staring a the cool blue VU meters bouncing along to your favourite music. It has a metal remote, but truly, nothing beats the heavy clunk of operating the source selector by hand. It is functionally perfect and hasn't missed a beat. I've run a few different speakers with them, and I would say that this amp would be an excellent choice to tame a standmount with an upward tilt to the treble. I'm not a vinyl guy, but I have been told that the inbuilt phonostage is very good I have all of the original packaging and documentation. Photos: (the orange marker is a sticker to help me see the volume level from across the room and will come off without trouble)

  8. Hi All Was given a L-530 for Christmas, a beautiful beast but its got a few faults. I'd really like to get it working and I need some help. It's Japanese so I've powered it with a cheap 500w 100v step down. I've found and downloaded the circuit diagram, owners and service manuals. It looks reasonable clean inside, I reckon its been opened a few times as all the screws don't match. The transistors on the two PB-1393-1 (L&R power amps boards?) are different with with 2x 2SC2922 52Y and 2x 2SA1216 53Y on left board, 2x 2SC2526 NW(X) and 2X 2SA1076 OH(X) on the right. The right looks original. One of the caps (?) in the phono stage looks to have leaked but thats the only obvious blow out. Initial testing done with CD player connected to AUX input and both headphones (first time) and speakers via speaker A output. On power up; All the panel lights come on with the warm up flashing. Red LEDs on the power amp boards light (4 each) as do the two on phono input stage. Warm up relay (RY 201) triggers after maybe 10 seconds, light stabilises and music is produced out of the left channel only. About 10 seconds later relay triggers again, warm up flashes and music stops. Power off for a short while lets me repeat, with the same result. I'll probably have to take it to someone here in Adelaide before too long (suggestions as to who welcomed) but am keen to go as far as I can before then. Thanks for reading my post, any help/suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
  9. Item: Luxman A522 Belt Drive Turntable fitted with Grace G-707 Tonearm & Denon DL103 Moving Coil Cartridge Location: Melbourne Price: Reduced from $1150 to $850!! FIRM because this is already a bargain Item Condition: Beautiful clean condition apart from some scratching to the lid. Operationally perfect and set up ready to play Reason for selling: FAR too many turntables Payment Method: Cash, Bank Transfer or Paypal Extra Info: A superb example of this rare turntable, with classic looks but serviced and upgraded to current audiophile standards by turntable maestro Rick Powell. Adjusted for optimum performance with correct VTA, azimuth, overhang, offset angle, tracking force and bias correction under test conditions. Refurbishment of all electrical contacts and cabling, horizontal and vertical relocation of the arm via the locking collar and re-aligning the bearing has resulted in the best performing sample of this combination you will find. It will certainly surpass more expensive units that are not properly set up. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  10. Trying to fix the issue with this Luxman amp. Takes a while to get out of protection on start-up. When outputting more than about 1W, speaker makes popping sound, if left playing, makes one really loud pop and turns itself back to protection mode. I took it open and got some pictures. Seems like the amp had been repaired before. One of the amp board looks like it's been blown up before. the main power transistors looks different on the power amps, is that a concern? The 2SA679 is swapped for 2SB655A and 2SC1079 is swapped to 2SD675A. Any ideas what would be causing the issue? Any help is appreciated.

  12. Item: Luxman L-509U Integrated Amplifier Location: Melbourne Price: 5800 Item Condition: as new Reason for selling: need money Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I am one only owner. Bought new for over $8000 in 2012 The amp has never been repaired, works very well. No issues, can give a week warranty. The unit has never been loud more then 9am because I live in a flat and I like my neighbors. Winner of SoundStage's Reviewer's Choice Award (February 2009) "The L-509u was one dead-quiet integrated amp with an ultra-low noise floor, resulting in the blackest of backgrounds from which the music would emerge in solid, focused, three-dimensional images. Additionally, the L-509u was tonally neutral, and did not favor one end of the frequency spectrum over another; instead its sonic signature was geared toward delivering the least-colored, most musically natural performance, regardless of the type of music." "What impressed me most, however, was the L-509u’s control of the bass." "Subterranean? Without a doubt." Click here to be redirected to the SoundStage review. The L-509u features the new high quality electronic selector switch, which is the heart of the C-1000f pre-amp (one of Luxman’s 80th anniversary commemoration models). The sound quality deterioration using the new electronic input switch is now minimal, while channel separation and crosstalk efficiency were raised substantially in comparison with the previous L-550A / L-590A / L-507 /L-509SE. In addition the illuminated position indicator around the input selector knob, makes it much easier to view the selected position even from afar. The integrated amplifier also benefits from the ALPS volume control used in the CL-88 vacuum tube preamplifier. A massive solid-brass, four gang potentiometer. The amplifier section has not been ignored either; noise and distortion has been kept to a minimum with the introduction of ODNF version 2.2. The deep, rich, wonderfully textured tone is available here in Luxman’s most powerful integrated amplifier. No compromises made for sound quality; designed for the musical purist. This is Luxman’s ultimate integrated amplifier. * Equipped with ODNF version 2.2 for minimal noise and distortion. * Solid brass, four gang attenuator from the CL-88 tube preamp. * Electronic input selector, trickle down technology from the flagship C-1000f. * Relay power source with large storage capacity. * One pair of RCA inputs with Luxman's eddy current defeating technology, * Peel Coat PCB with gold plated traces. * Power Output Display Meter in dB * Switch to split the preamp from the power amp. * High quality phono stage. * Two pairs of balanced inputs. * Custom parts designed by LUXMAN, even the paint used on the resistors to denote the value has been carefully chosen after many hours of comparitive listening. The volume control on the L-509u is a solid brass, four gang ALPs potentiometer, its too heavy to be motorised, hence the lack of a remote control, it does however provide a linear attentuation & gain throughout the range, holding both channels perfectly in balance even at low amplitude. The tone controls might seem like an anachronism in this day and age of minimalism, but they can be remarkably effective in bring to life a less than perfect music collection. We all have music gems in our collection that are sonicly challenging. A lot of the 1980's CDs are quite harsh sounding and the digital glare can be quite fatiguing. Reduce the treble slightly and while the harsh CD is not going to suddenly sound like a reference recording, at least it will now be perfectly listenable. Sit back relax, enjoy the music & forgot about the HiFi. When you want to bypass the tone controls, just engage the Line Straight switch. Printed Circuit Boards normally have a green coat (dye) that can be printed upon, so the manufacturer knows where to place the copper traces and where to insert the resistors & capacitors. LUXMAN's designers don't like the sound of the green dye, so instead they print onto a plastic peel coat and remove it once the traces and mounting holes are in place. Then the copper traces are gold plated to reduce resistance across the circuit. In the photo below you will notice that Peel Coat circuit boards are an off-white color. It’s this fanatical attention to detail that delivers such superior sound quality. The on board phono stage is not an after thought on any of the Luxman integrated amplifiers, rather a well executed pre-preamplifer. The MC input has 55dB of gain (thats a multiplication of 550x) and is suitable for medium to high output MC cartridges, approx .7mV. While the MM input has 35dB of gain. Extensive listening was applied to the high purity, oxygen free copper (OFC) cables which are used to transmit the signal throughout the amplifier. These cables have a minimal audible signature and minimal electrical effect on the audio waveform. Linear wide bandwidth frequency response is achieved by the low measured values of both inductance and capacitance. The result, the cables do not color the sound, but pass it through, quickly. There is a high quality headphone amplifier, accessible from the front panel. The headphone output is taken from the speaker output,, assuring you of the highest fidelity. LUXMAN did not cut corners in the L-509u; notice lots of custom solid copper parts including screws & fasteners & mounting plates. Not to mention the gold plated peel coat circuit boards. This is one channel complete with heat sink. Here is a clever device found on the back of every Luxman powered product. You press the button and it will check the phase of the electricity it is receiving. If the AC outlet in the wall is incorrectly wired, meaning the live and neutral are swapped, a red LED will turn on to warn you. You only need to press it once, when you are installing a product to check that everything is in order. Its a simple mistake, that occurs often, and one that can seriously undermine your listening enjoyment.
