Luxman has been making high-end audio equipment since 1925, and to celebrate it’s 10th decade they’ve launched the CL38uSE valve preamp (shown above) and MQ88uSE power amplifier. Both models, limited to just 100 units each, boast custom-made transformers and block capacitors as well as a new newly engineered oil capacitor, which contributes to the amplifiers’ effortless musicality. During production, each unit undergoes a 48hr test and burn in process before the final performance of each unit is confirmed exactly to specification, audio performance and finish. And you thought Brogue was just excited by the classic retro valves and cool aluminium dials.
