Reviewers’ Choice Award for Luxman L-550Ax Class A Integrated – SoundStage! Network

Luxman L-550AX Soundstage! Network's Reviewers' Choice Award

Luxman L-550AX Soundstage! Network’s Reviewers’ Choice Award

“What the L-550AX possessed was an incredibly lifelike, holographic, reach-out-and-touch-it three-dimensionality…”

“What set the L-550AX’s sound apart from the crowd was its presence — a natural, thoroughly organic sound that was most notable in the midrange, and made my Hegel H300 sound mechanical by comparison.”

“Once again, the Luxman was able to render the entire recording with such dimensional color and palpable weight that I struggled to find something worthwhile to write about. I was too interested in cueing up another tune. If that’s not an emphatic endorsement, I don’t know what is.” <full article>

“… effortless top end… such clarity that it set a new benchmark for me for high-frequency reproduction and detail… it reproduced kick drums with power, heft, and control usually heard only from amps with twice the power output… despite its modest output spec into 8 ohms, the M-900u is actually a powerhouse.”

“… the best-sounding power amp I’ve ever heard… The M-900u is one of the best values in high-end amplifiers.” <full review>
