Founded by T. Hayakawa and his brother K. Yoshikawa and began as a radio equipment department of Kinsuido Picture Frame Store in Osaka, Japan in 1925. During that time, Japanese radio depended on American and European technology, and it appeared that importing parts and equipment presented them gratifying business opportunities.
However, in order to reduce importing costs, maximise profits and establish and ‘edge’ over its competitors, Lux Corporation decided to manufacture parts and assemble its own products in house – marking the birth of the Luxman brand. In pursuit of Ultimate Fidelity, Luxman began from manufacturing transformers and switches, eventually diversifying into the manufacture of high class vacuum tube amplifiers. The Luxman brand grew to prominence in the Hi Fi community mid 1970’s and early 1990’s due primarily to the outstanding reputation gained by the quality of its products and is now considered as one of the oldest electronic component manufacturers in Japan.
Since the highly admired introduction of the PD-171 into the market in 2011, Luxman turntables have been renowned to deliver a sense of atmosphere that can only be achieved through the medium of vinyl, that every vinyl enthusiast strives to achieve.
The L-590AX MK II draws upon Luxman's decades of experience in amplifier design to deliver an exquisite combination of rich sonic expression, fine detail, wide bandwidth and dynamic gusto. Stereo output is rated at 30W per channel into 8Ω and 60W per channel into 4Ω.
The M-700u power amp is the perfect partner for the C-700u, drawing upon Luxman’s decades of experience in amplifier design to deliver an exquisite combination of rich sonic expression, fine detail, wide bandwidth and dynamic gusto. Stereo output is rated at 120W per channel into eight ohms and 210W per channel into four ohms, achieving up to 840W per channel into one ohm instantaneously.
