The venerable Japanese audio specialist has added a D-06u CD/SACD player, C-700u stereo preamplifier and M-700u stereo power amplifier to its roster.
The D-06u offers coaxial, optical and asynchronous USB inputs for external digital sources. For disc playback, the LxDTM transport mechanism is a proprietary Luxman creation, featuring a die-cast aluminium loader and a Burr-Brown PCM1792A DAC supporting PCM data up to 32bit/384kHz and DSD data up to 5.64MHz via the USB input. The player comes with dedicated ‘Luxman Audio Player’ software for PC/Mac, enabling a wide range of digital audio formats to play through the D-06u via the USB input, including FLAC, ALAC, WAV, AIFF, MP3, DSF and DSIDIFF.
The C-700u preamp includes Luxman’s fourth-generation ODNF (Only Distortion Negative Feedback) amp circuit, directly coupled to the LECUA 1000 attenuator circuit, trickled down from the flagship C-900u preamp plus a ‘line straight’ button that bypasses the included tone controls and phase selection for the balanced inputs.
The M-700u stereo power amplifier is rated at 120W per channel. There is also a user-selectable mono mode with a rated output of 420W. Price for each is £6,995.
