Sunken living rooms with deep shag carpeting, real wood and leather furniture, large modernist paintings, nelson bubble lamps, and cocktails shaken, not stirred...

Like Sansui audio or Seiko watches of the 70's, Luxman has a look that has remained (or maybe even, set the standard of) a clean classic integrated style that takes us back, in a good way, some four decades. And has plenty of quality and care under the hood to always entertain and be relevant juxtaposed to the modern children. Brushed and polished aluminum bits, lots of knobs, lots of face plate (negative space), and slotted toggles, sooooo clean, sooooo classic.

Happy Listening!

You nailed it, man!

Looks like a tarted-up Heakthkit ca. 1950 -- probably even uses tubes.

It looks like this is going to be a great amplifier for anyone who is blessed enough to be able to get their hands on one. I hope that it does well and I love that it looks as it should.
