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.

Circuits-wise, the L-507s sports OD ßeta (Optimized Dual ßeta) and the simplified SSC (Single Stagger Circuit).
Unlike the C-7 and M-7 separates, the L-507s has an MM/MC phono stage.

The rest is like any 1987-1994 Lux component : five-point FRP (Fiber Reinforced Plastics) composite base, mechanically decoupled & low-impedance power-supply, Line Phase Sensor, ultra select parts and two backlit big logarithmic meters which replaced the tiny but ultra-precise digitalia of the M-03, M-06 and M-07...

Later upgraded as L-507sII for SACD bandwidth compatibility.
Both versions were made by AZDEN, but the sII versions of others from the same lineup, L-505sII for instance, were, previsibly, given the advancing timeframe, made by Aimor.

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.
The L-505s is circuit-wise identical but has slightly lesser phono stage specifications and less power output.


A real L-507s here and a real L-507sII here.
