CCallilMay 3, Bidding on both these Lux units does go high and for a reason, they are very nice units.
For Sale Luxman CL Tube Preamplifier
Share This Page Tweet. 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.
Kuxman don’t have experience of Luxman gear, but it has a good reputation for sound quality. The CL replaced the CL so its specs are better cl-344 expected. Dandy saying you could do better with something simpler if you just computer is not using the right words.
DandyMay 4, Log in or Sign up. The Bottlehead kits are also less sophisticated as far as flexibility goes but they may sound as good. The heat is something I’m concerned about with Lux gear and would look over any purchase for any darkened boards and such.
You must log in or sign up to reply here. I googled CL32 and see it is tube. The CL is a sleeper imho. Yes, my password is: This is an excellent preamp. A CDP can luman drive a power amp without a preamp. It looks as if there was a wood surround option that disposes of the original top cover.
Id sure not mind having a luxman tube pre.
Luxman CL-32 // First Dabbling in Tube?
All very nice gear. Blue ShadowMay 3, There isn’t anything simpler that is as good as the CL Do you already have an account? In my experience, a tube preamp with a SS power amp does not offer the same tube experience.
Luxman is known for topnotch audio stuff, so buying that pre shouldnt be a prob. As far as SS power and tube preamp, that is the way to go for fewer issues.
Harmon Kardon Citation Hans Hilberink’s site has nice info on SS Luxmans, including the model you mention: I use a SS pre all the luxjan with my tube amps.
Used to sell this one, never owned one but have cl-4 number of Lux units including their tube power amps. Do you use a lot of different sources and listen to vinyl?
Its a great pre IMO. 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. If you can afford it and it is in good shape you won’t be disappointed. Attached photo is dl-34 a reference image. 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. No, create an account now.
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. Your name or email address: I’d just be worried about the lack of ventilation cll-34 that gaggle of 12AX7 tubes They are known to sound pretty good. Power tubes cost much more than signal tubes and they need to be changed more often so a tube pre is the way to get some tube sound into cl-4 system.
I use a couple different tube preamps with the usual SS power amps, using the Luxman tube amps at times, too. If there are none, then this preamp has proper control of the heat from those many 12AX7 tubes. Recently I’ve become engrossed by vintage audio, and I’ve been slowly working on my own setup and learning along the way. DandyMay 2, Here’s just one current thread describing a good restoration.
Looks pretty simple, actually. Luxman make quality hifi, but this tube preamp might be an unnecessarily difficult and expensive place to start.
Blue ShadowJun 15, There is something to using a different unit for just computer sounds as there are a bunch of inexpensive Chinese preamp things that will work. Common power tubes, like 6BQ5s or s are not very expensive and last a long time if run properly. They won’t sound like this unit.
Quieter, lower distortion and such. CCallilMay 2, I have no personal exp. 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.
