I am interested in the Luxman SQ-N10 tube amp and the matching CD player. However, I have been told that you have to wait about 45 minutes for tube amps to warm up before you can play them. Is this true?


Answer:

The tube amp takes one minute to power up and you can listen to music then. It will take an additional twenty minutes to fully stabilize & reach its optimum sound performance.
