Luxman C-08

October   1 9 9 4 october 1994
1 9 9 6 1996

Part of the re-launch of Luxman : post-Alpine and built by AZDEN. Or : the last period of actual worldwide visibility and proper sales - even if with much smaller lineups and shrinking distribution.

The C-08 is the preview of the future C-7, C-9 and C-10.
Circuit-wise, it is the same : all-stage DC pure complementary plus one-stage voltage amp with OD ßeta, STAR and CSSC - see the C-7 or C-10 page for the descriptions of these circuit.

No High Inertia Power Supply yet, and no phono stage either - external E-03 necessary - but the Ultimate Attenuator is inside, as used in the L-500 or L-580.

The rest is like any 1987-1994 Lux component : five-point FRP (Fiber Reinforced Plastics) composite base, mechanically decoupled & low-impedance power-supply, shielded sub-enclosures, ultra select parts and a backlit front logo which "enhances beauty".

Like all components since 1987, the massive extruded fronts were all made at Luxman's with a high-precision CNC machine customed in... true Luxman tradition.


A real C-08 here.
