Luxman L-505u - £3295.00
Luxman L-505u Integrated Amplifier
The Luxman L-505 has been in continuos production for over thirty years and has quite often been Luxman's best selling single product. Of course it has been updated & refined many times over the past thirty years.
The Luxman L-505f was introduced in 2001 and was remarkably successful as many proud Luxman owners will happily testify. Its successor, the L-505u, now has Luxman's unique noise & distortion canceling technology - ODNF version 2.2 as well as the electronic input selector (trickle-down technology from the flagship C-1000f) , which has lowered channel crosstalk & increased channel separation..
The Luxman L-505u is a fully featured integrated amplifier, with a wonderful phono stage, multiple inputs (including one balanced), tone controls (easily defeated at the touch of a button), enough power to drive most speakers in just about any room in your home and a remote control to add convenience to a remarkably comprehensive integrated amplifier. It is a wonderful entrance to the world of Luxman.
AWARDED 5 GLOBES ACCOLADE IN HI-FI WORLD OCTOBER 2012
Excerpt from review.
"It presented sound in a calm and authoritative way while retaining impeccable manners... a winning combination of definition, good timing, secure and precise imaging and an ability to subtly present emotions in a digestible and moving way.
The openness of the sound allowed me to analyse the mix while at the same time presenting it as a cohesive and comprehensive whole…
it seemed somehow to identify and transmit the humanity, emotional excitement and intensity behind the sounds."
