Paul Rigby reviews this Japanese disc player with added DAC. Includes the Closer Look hands-on section

On this review, I try to look a little closer than normal at some of the additional features supplied by Luxman

Included to make your CD experiences that much easier. At least, that’s the idea.

    Hi Paul, How do you think the Luxman would compare with a cheaper transport and separate DAC? I know you were impressed with the AudioLab 6000CDT and at the time felt you hadn’t explored it’s full potential as it wasn’t the limiting factor. Bel Canto make a transport for £1600 and with a similar priced DAC this may well be a better way to go.

      Hi Richard – yes, it’s a moot point and one that I didn’t have time to follow up, I’m afraid. The review of the box itself took a while. There are users out there who really don’t like the idea of a transport/DAC because they see it as a faff, bigger footprint, more complex buying decisions, etc. And I can see that. For them, an integrated is ideal. For pure sound purposes and no more, I’d probably lean towards the transport/DAC option but there’s still plenty to like and admire about the new integrated and they sound excellent.
