The Luxman C-700u and M-700u duo are the subjects of a lavish three-page review in the high-end ‘Temptations’ section of the June 2016 edition of What Hi-Fi?, the UK’s foremost specialist audio and AV equipment magazine. The review praises both units, expressing particular admiration for the M-700u, upon which it bestowed the maximum five-star rating. The duo also earn five stars overall.
“Their presentation is fast, agile and rendered with precision…Notes stop and start crisply and there’s a lovely organic flow to the sound that puts us in mind of the best valve-powered gear, but here without a hint of excess warmth or richness… these units just get out of the way of the music, and that’s a quality that’s far less common than it should be.”
“The M-700u is a star…A deeply impressive power amp that combines finesse with force better than most, and adds terrific build quality.”
