Luxman M-383

Thanks to Alpine support throughout the 1980s, Luxman had been able to reenter the truly high-end market... in Japan. When Alpine went away, Lux tried to reenter the export market as well but with less exclusive lineups.

Enter the 300 series which were all part of the first AZDEN-built lineups. Azden, however, also made the very exclusive L-580 and continued to make Luxman's ultra-high-end components until the late 1990s : B-10, C-10 et al.

The M-383 is a bigger M-363 / M-375 : big toroidal trafo, two chimney diecast heatsinks, BTL mode and 2x 700W /2 Ohm output.

The circuit is typical Lux (Duo-ßeta, Star and Line-Phase sensor) while the hardware is solid if undistinguished.
Like all of the successful 300 Series, the build-quality has nothing in common with an L-500 but is clearly on the ex-Alpine side, like the LV-105 or LV-109 were : industrial and banal.

Powerhouse nevertheless.
