EQ-500 er resultatet av en fire år lang utviklingsprosess og er Luxmans beste RIAA-forsterker noen gang.

 

RIIA-forsterkingen utføres fullt og helt av rør, noe som ifølge Luxman er den eneste måten å utnytte platespilleren som helanalogt lydmedium til sitt ytterste. Det vi kan bekrefte er at vi aldri tidligere har hørt en platespillerforforsterker med like fyldig, kraftig og "deilig" gjenngivelse. Her er det virkelig kjøtt på beinet kombinert med en fantastisk detaljering og holografi.

 

ASR Basis Exclusive har i snart 13 år vært vår ultimate RIAA-referanse. Om EQ-500 er like bra, eller bedre, fortoner seg som en ren smakssak. Men, vi kan konstatere at den er i samme klasse (høyere ros kjenner vi ikke til) og den kan nevnes i samme åndedrag som en reell utfordrer. Betjeningsmessig er Luxman EQ-500 faktisk hakket bedre med alle instillinger (inkludert demagnetisering av pickup) tilgjengelig fra det fantastisk vakre frontpanelet.

 

Dersom du ønsker en fyldig, varm og detaljert lydgjenngivelse med fokus på spilleglede (noe vi gjør) er dette kanskje verdens aller, aller beste RIAA.

Luxman’s last top of the line phono stage, the E-1 (solid state) was released in 2001 and was only recently discontinued. Since the introduction of the award winning PD-171 in 2011 and the subsequent PD-171A and PD-171AL turntables, Luxman’s engineers were eager to return to the drawing board and deliver a fresh design using all of the best parts at their disposal for a complimentary phono stage.

 

Given that Luxman spent almost four years designing the PD-171, it makes sense that they took their time designing the EQ-500.

 

In order to deliver the tonal density that the best vinyl playback is capable of, the vacuum tube design is not a surprise. Nor that they reached out to Mundorf (Germany) for their “Audiophile” series of capacitors. Many of the Japanese designers feel that the best amplification of the super low output of a moving coil cartridge is with a step-up transformer. Considering that Luxman have been designing transformers for ninety years, it is perfectly logical that four moving coil step-up transformers (two per channel) are employed.

 

 

Features:

  • In order to deliver all of the harmonic density available in the best analogue recordings, its a vacuum tube design. All stages are vacuum tube (1, 2 stage SRPP {Series Regulated Push Pull}, the final stage (cathode follower parallel) and non-feedback CR type phono-equalizer amplifier (RIAA standard only).
  • Vacuum tube rectifier to the power supply circuit for supplying a stable voltage to the amplifier circuit and (EZ81) employing a choke-coil.
  • Luxman have been designing audio transformers for ninety years. Moving coil step-up transformers (super permalloy), four in all, two per channel for high & low output moving coil cartridges deliver up to 18dB of gain.
  • Individually adjustable gain & loading up to 67dB for low output moving coil cartridges.
  • Balanced & single-ended outputs.
  • Three separate, single ended inputs.
  • Highest quality parts employed: Mundorf “audiophile” series capacitors (Germany), JJ vacuum tubes (Slovakia) and Takamisawa capacitors (Japan).
  • Filter switches: low cut (20Hz / 3dB), high cut (8kHz / 3dB).
  • Mono / Stereo switch.
  • Articulator switch = cartridge demagnetizer.
  • Phase invert (for balanced output).
  • VU meters.
