Great review. I love the clean aesthetics. I had a Luxman D-113D CD player back in the early 90's. It was a great CD player.

A great review puts you in the room with the reviewer. This was a great review. The amp sounded awesome!

I re-read the print review for kicks, and the explanation JA gave was very educational. Seeing the information transition from figs 1 to 2, as well as the generally informative figs 3 and 4, I can see very clearly his references.

I really want that Gabriel tune- it didnt come on the LP!

You can trust Mr. Phillips opinion in the sound of the Luxman. I will never know unless I run accross it at a show or dealer. If it cost as much as some undesirable homes and desirable cars, it should sound better than a great cheaper but fine Parasound Halo. If you don't have a nice car or home, maybe you should not buy it. To me, my system would get more use than my automobile.  But singularly height of the amp would cause me to overlook it as if I could acquire it. Though love the way Luxman keeps its guts separated!
