…the Luxman CL-1000 unashamedly marries truly stellar sonic performance with the sort of perceived value – and build quality – that eludes much of the high-end.

…the product that most impressed me between November 2017 and October 2018 was the trim and tidy Luxman MQ-88uSE power amplifier, which uses two KT88 pentode tubes per channel to deliver a satisfactory 25Wpc. Its sound is beautiful, its build quality superb, its Japanese-perfectionist pedigree beyond reproach.
