Looking for a new Amp or Preamp? If you're after tubes, post over here.

RE: Has anyone here owned Luxman gear?

I believe the Luxman L-550xa class A is $5,400 and the Luxman 590AII Class A is about $10,000 (?). Does anyone have any comments on these Class A amplifiers? How do these class A amps compare to the Luxman A/B amps?

It looks like the Accuphase products are more expensive than Luxman. For example, I was told the new Accuphase E-360 integrated amp is $10,000. Can someone confirm its $10,000 price? This is too expensive for me. The Accuphase E-360 integrated is rated at 100 wpc into 8 ohms and only 140 wpc into 4 ohms. I expected 200 wpc into 4 ohms. Am I missing something? Is the E-360 fully balanced? I see that it has two balanced inputs. The unit looked very interesting until I saw the price.

I have not auditioned the Accuphase but would be interested in hearing comments on the Luxman A/B integrated amplifiers.
