Luxman 505u - Wow!

I worked with Luxman equipment back in the late 70s. Their amps had a very smooth and refined sound. Build quality was solid and finish was always elegant.

I can't wait to hear some feedback on the new (and drop-dead gorgeous) 505u integrated.

If you have any experience with recent (Y2k+) Luxman amps, please share.

Thanks!

If the reviews come in strong, I might be selling off some
nice vintage pieces to own that!

Re: Luxman 505u - Wow!

Hi. I was thinking of perhaps purchasing a vintage Luxman integrated amp, one of the L-series receivers. Will they be adequate today, for my needs? I'm just starting out in the audiophile world. I'll need an amp to drive Infinity P162s... sources are Oppo 980 and Squeezebox. Or am I better off with a used integrated like Rega or Creek? I listen to mostly classical, with a lot of jazz and some indie music thrown in for good measure. Thank you!
