SoundStage! Ultra, Tom Mathew proclaim Luxman EQ-500 “grail-level component”

In a rave review of the Luxman EQ-500 phono stage in SoundStage! Ultra, review Tom Mathew writes:

“In a previous review, I urged readers to search for audio components that would stand the test of time. Such components should be relentlessly musical, gorgeous to look at, easy to use, reliable, and provide state-of-the-art sound quality that’s unlikely to be significantly bettered for years. The Luxman checks all of those boxes. A veritable Swiss Army Knife of analog reproduction, it fleshed out the special character of each of my treasured cartridges with ease and finesse. It’s a grail-level component.”
