This Integrated Amp is roughly 3 years old and came to me non-functional from gumtree. I have got it repaired thanks to the work of AddictedtoAudio and Schiit USA. It is being shipped from Addicted to Audio to my address. It will most likely arrive on Monday or Tuesday when I pick it up from the Audio Tailor where I'm having it dropped off. A new one costs $2950 from A2A. I am pricing it at $1500 as it will cover express postage all over Australia and it cost me $300 to repair. Should be noted that I make no money off this sale. The main reason I'm selling it now is that my parents, whom I live with, are currently going on a trip to China to see relatives and I will need some funds to survive the month or so they are away.

Greetings. Selling my Luxman 550AX Class A Integrated Amp that was only purchased in 2016. Still under Full Australian Warranty. Near "new" pristine condition.
If you are reading this, you will no doubt know all about Luxman gear, especially their Class A amps. Only reason I am selling is I have moved from a large house to an apartment and need the "Hi Fi Rack Space" for a work desk.
Open for offers and discussion.
Remote, all accessories, box and original manuals are included.
Need a bit of advise, my current setup consist of an integrated amp with in-build DAC. It accepts the following connections:
- AES/EBU input
- S/P Diff coaxial input X2
- Toslink input
- USB input
I am not interested in hooking up a laptop/nuc/mac mini with the integrated DAC. What are my options? I do have a Cambridge Stream Magic V2, Normally I just use the App on Android to:
1.) Stream Spotify
2.) Browse my Plex DLNA library and stream flac files
I can do the above via Bubble UPNP or the native Cambridge app. The streamer is connected to my amp via balanced out. It also have coaxial/toslink out as well.
So, is it possible to connect the streamer to the in-build DAC via Toslink or coaxial and let the streamer handle the fetching and control? Not sure the Cambridge DAC will process any incoming stream. Ideally it should pass thru the stream and let onboard DAC in the amp to do all the D/A conversation. So, all I left to do is a nice clean interface on the phone or tablet app. Not a big fan to constant tweaking/updating/maintenance of a PC.
The other option I am thinking is to acquire a Raspberry Pi and install Volumio or other similar distribution with have DLNA and Spotify functionalities. Volumio app is also available for on Android platform I think. No daughter board DAC with the Pi just plan old "mini PC" with USB to external DAC. Doable?

I've reviewed this amp in my "addicts guide" thread (or one of them anyway, I suspect the second) but since the search function isn't up and running for the site yet I haven't been able to find that review. I'll keep looking but in the meantime the Stello AI500 is a Mosfet amp rated at 150 wpc into 8 Ohms and 300 wpc into 4 Ohms and there is more info available in the links below.
Comes with box, manual and remote control.
