    Jerry is coming round I believe.

    Maybe he won't think it's boring. It is class A. He doesn't really like it so far from Pass Lab X150 exposure. Which was boring.

    How many Watts class A was that Jerry?

    I've heard quite a few class A tranny amps.
    Not my thing based on those.
    The best was the little Nobsound JLH clone at 10wpc.
    I think the Pass X150 was ... surprise! ... 150wpc, with a big dollop of that in class A, not sure how much but it got very hot!

    I can't find it in the specs. 20 or 30 iirc.

    That is one handsome looking beast of an amplifier. How many watts is it?

    The Luxman is definitely up there in the top two amplifiers if not the top amplifier I have ever had plugged into any gear I have owned.

    So I figure it's good

    Will this feeling last? There's a pretty good chance it will. This amp just isn't normal. It's just so well judged and balanced. It must have taken some serious experience and skill to craft this sort of a sound. Trying to find electronics good enough to drive my speakers has been a real challenge. This unit is capable of doing it well.

    Respect. Can't help but feel the brand is underated.

    It is such a far cry from their Duo Beta circuits of old it is crazy.

    There's one more point I want to make.

    I think many remember cheap Japanese integrated amps from the 70s and 80s and tend to lump contemporary Japanese gear in with how these units used to sound. Which in many cases just wasn't great in any way, shape or form.

    At least level, at least, nothing could be further than the truth these days.
