Japanese Hi-Fi specialist Luxman has announced the L-509X, a high-end integrated AB class stereo amplifier. A wide bandwidth, low distortion design, the amp utilises a similar power supply topography to the brand’s M-700u power amplifier and features an 88-step LECUA 1000 volume control. The pre-amp section is said to be equivalent to the Luxman C-900u pre-amp.

Short audio runs and peel coat printed circuit boards are used, as found in Luxman’s top-end models, intended to eliminate dielectric effects and reduce resistance. A built-in phono equalizer is compatible with MM & MC cartridges.

“We have poured all the experience and technology gained from years of developing amplifiers into this model L-509X,” enthuses the company.

The retro design features a pair of traditional analogue level meters, and a vented top panel. Large aluminum knobs source selector and volume control, have a stylish hairline finish and blasted white barrels.

The power output is rated at 2 x 120W at 8 Ohms. Connectivity comprises four analogue line inputs, Phono input (MM/MC), balanced stereo input, recording in/output and separate in/output.

The L-509X is available now, with a retail price of £8,500.
