Luxman CL-34

Luxman Luxkit A3034

October   1 9 8 0 october 1980

Modern tubed preamplifier with, for the first time in a tubed component, Duo-ßeta loops.

The EQ stage is a three-stage DC amp with a shunt-regulated push-pull output : high input resistance, low output impedance.
The flat amp is a two-stage differential amp with the tone control section wrapped around either sides of it.

The headphone amp has its own little discrete DC amplifier and metal film caps, low-noise volume control, gold-plated terminals and hand-made wiring are the finishing touches on this discrete marvel.

Having only an MM stage built-in, the AD8000 was available as an accessory ; the volume pot is a 2-gang ALPS.

The CL-34 has that brief 1980 LUX T-tag and was made to complement with the equally tubed but earlier MQ-68C which had an LCJ T-tag.
The Luxkit A3034, being a kit affair, naturally has no T-Tag.

A CL-34 in wood here, another sans wood here and a Luxkit version at the same place.
