Yes, my password is: I don’t have experience of Luxman gear, but it has a good reputation for sound quality. When I said ‘simpler’, I did not mean a simpler preamp, but that a power amp will have a simpler circuit to luxxman and get the tube sound. If so, this might be what you need, but if you just use a computer soundcard and CD player, you could do better with a simple tube power amp, e.
Bidding on both these Lux units does go high and for a reason, they are very nice units. Your name or email address: Blue ShadowJun 15, DandyMay 2, It looks as if there was a wood surround option that disposes of the original top cover.
Luxman CL-32 // First Dabbling in Tube?
A CDP can easily drive a power amp without a preamp. Id sure not mind having a luxman tube pre.
Hans Hilberink’s site has nice info on SS Luxmans, including the model you mention: If there are none, then this preamp has proper control of the heat from those many 12AX7 tubes. I have no personal exp. Its a great pre Cl-43.
CCallilMay 3, This is an excellent preamp. CCallilMay 2, Do you use a lot of luxjan sources and listen to vinyl? Looks pretty simple, actually.

I’d just be worried about the lack of ventilation over that gaggle of 12AX7 tubes All very nice gear. Harmon Kardon Citation There isn’t anything simpler that is as good as the CL Share This Page Tweet.
Quieter, lower distortion and such. If you can afford it and it is in good shape you won’t be disappointed. Blue ShadowMay 3, A listing recently came up for a Luxman CL, and I think it looks like an incredible piece of gear, being a design student with an obsession with industrial design, stuff like this just makes me happy.
Luxman CL on
It’s a simpler design than some other Lux tube preamps for sure but the build quality is all there, and much better parts and build construction than the later CA SS preamp. The CL replaced the CL so its specs are better as expected. They are known to sound pretty good. Recently I’ve become engrossed by vintage audio, and I’ve been slowly working on my own setup and learning along the way.
Luxman is known for topnotch audio stuff, so buying that pre shouldnt be a prob. Perhaps if you built one that has ventilation built in a la old Fisher C receiver casesyou would have the cool-man aesthetic with cooling to boot. Do you already have an account? The CL is a sleeper imho.
Attached photo is just a reference image. No, create an account now. In my experience, a tube preamp with a SS power amp does not offer the same tube experience.
Luxman CL34 Pre Amplifier Pro Serviced
I use a SS pre all the time with my tube amps. Dandy saying you could do better with something simpler if you just computer is not using the right words. There is xl-34 to using a different unit for just computer sounds as there are a bunch of inexpensive Chinese preamp things that will work. Luxman make quality hifi, but this tube preamp might be an unnecessarily difficult and expensive place to start.
The pre-amp will probably end up going for more than I can afford right now, but it’s brought up a lot of questions. Here’s just one current thread describing a good restoration. luxnan
As far as SS power and tube preamp, that is the way to go for fewer issues. I use a couple different tube preamps with the usual SS power amps, using the Luxman tube amps at times, too. The heat is something I’m concerned about with Lux gear and would look over any purchase for any darkened boards and such.
