Ken Kessler & Paul Miller, HiFi News, “HIGHLY RECOMMEND” Luxman’s 90th birthday “celebratory” 700 series.

“Style, fit and finish ooze ‘luxury’ as the name has always implied, while tone controls are comprehensive yet avoiding clutter. Meters are a nice touch, as is the preamp’s display.” “To any love of the blues in awe of Robert Johnson, they were near-religious in their intensity and respectfulness, conveyed through visceral twanging and enough […]

Robert Ross System: Eclipse TD712zMk2 loudspeakers, Eclipse 725SW subwoofer, Luxman D38u, Luxman Cl-88, Luxman MQ-88, & Luxman EQ-88

Wow! I have never been so literally blown away and delighted by a listening experience in my life…I actually felt like clapping at the end. I have never heard pianos and violins sound so life like. I have never heard complex passages so uncongested and the dynamics, from soft to explosively loud were incredible, the speakers never faltered for a moment.

Montreal’s Salon Son & Image 2015 pre-show rundown, music in my suitcase!

Off to Montreal we go! My affinity towards both Montreal, the city and their French Canadian residents is well-known. As a token of appreciation to the hospitality I receive, I made it a point to be on the look out for delightful French music during my travels throughout the year to play in Montreal. In […]

Maximum pleasure from a superb desktop audio system – Eclipse TD-M1

“I work from home, and most of that work is spent in front of a screen. It’s not possible to work with headphones, because I would be forever removing them to answer my land-line or mobile phone, so I’m a prime candidate for good desktop audio. What I didn’t realize is how much pleasure I […]
