LUXMAN Celebrates 95 Years by Releasing Its New L-595A Special Edition Class A Integrated Amp

(May 11, 2021) LUXMAN is digging 30 years into its past to celebrate 95 years of existence, launching the all-new L-595A Special Edition Integrated Amplifier. The L-595ASE pays homage to the company's L-570 series Class A integrated amps, replicating appearance and performance factors enjoyed by audiophiles just a few short decades ago.

The exterior of the L-595ASE explodes with personality thanks to a two-tone faceplate complete with a black Alumite lower section and a hairline finish. Throwback details include aluminum direct selection switchgear with indicators and a volume knob accentuated by a deep counterbore and level indicator light. Save for a few minor details, like new density gradient cast-iron feet, the L-595ASE looks like it was unearthed from a time capsule.

Internally, the L-595ASE is Class A from top to bottom, eliminating crossover distortion during playback. Its amp section is rated at 30 watts per channel (2 channels, 8 ohms), utilizing a three-stage Darlington equipped, triple push-pull configuration for an impressive signal-to-noise ratio and high-frequency distortion characteristics. LUXMAN touts the inclusion of a highly regulated power transformer with independent left and right channel high-capacity filter capacitors and large speaker relays that lend to low impedance at the speaker terminals.

Design details intended to impact sound quality are found throughout the L-595ASE's circuitry, including LUXMAN's latest ODNF-u feedback circuit for improved error detection and its all-new LECUA1000 88-step electronically controlled volume attenuator. Engineers even removed a potential source of high-frequency noise on the joint input/output circuit board by ditching resistant green film coatings.

The L-595ASE rounds out its pre-amp duties with a built-in phono amplifier offering MM/MC compatibility.

LUXMAN's L-595A Special Edition is limited to 100 units in North America (300 units worldwide) and carries a price tag of $11,995 MSRP. Preorders can be placed through authorized dealers.

Not as cool looking as some of the older Luxman units I've seen, but still cool looking.

Interesting they’re only making 300 for worldwide distribution. Probably dictated by price...
