Luxman M-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.

Circuit-wise, the M-08 is a preview of the M-10 and B-10, with OD ßeta, CSSC and STAR circuits but no Twin Hybrid Diamond Buffer yet - see the B-10 page for the description of these circuits.

Hardware-wise... pretty identical :
multi-regulated 800VA EI transformer and 4x 22,000µF custom-ordered Elna For Audio caps.
The nine-stage power section with the secondary winding feeding separately the pre/balanced stage, final stage and accessory circuits.

Triple p-p per channel of Sanken bipolar devices and, luxury, both back input pots (bi-directional bal & unbal) are all fixed-resistor arrays, like on the MA-88 monoblocks.

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 a backlit giant logarithmic meter.

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 M-08 here.
