Lux Corporation, founded in 1925, has changed its company name to e-Lux Corporation with a new management organization to meet the changing world of our information society. At the same time, a new company has been established under the name of Luxman Corporation, to succeed to the traditional Luxman audio brand that has grown together with the development of Japanese audio.

Luxman was created in 1925 when radio broadcasting started in Japan and has long offered its great acoustics to the audio world. Luxman has been highly rated both at home and abroad as an excellent brand for high quality audio products.

People are open to natural things, standing on guard against unnatural things. Natural sound free from artificial processing gives birth to an opportunity for intimate dialog between people and music.

The natural and genuine influence of music upon listener imagination forms the basis for Luxman to depend on in manufacturing its products. Musicians pour their passion in music while recording engineers record it precisely. Luxman sincerely desires to fully reproduce the sounds and delicate tonal nuances involved, transmitting the spirit of the artists and the exciting atmosphere from concert sites to deliver music excitement as purely as possible.

At Luxman, we work for our products to deliver the passion of each music piece expressed by composers, players, and recording engineers to listeners, using Luxman enthusiasm with the same the level of zeal as artists and engineers. At the commemorable 80th anniversary of our foundation, Luxman is working to find further find excitement through excellent music and share the pleasure with clients and users.

Luxman History

Lux Corporation was established in 1925 when radio broadcasting started in Japan. The radio department opened in Lux Corporation, Osaka, which handled pictures and frames at that time. As the department displayed radio receivers in the store showcases for the first time in Osaka, almost all the passengers stopped there to listen to the superb sound of the receivers. Luxman’s history of seeking higher sound quality started from this moment. For more on Luxman History see the page artifacts.

Integrated Amplifiers
L-505u

L-505u – $4100

The L-505 series that has fascinated many music fans as a most affordable high-class amplifier was reborn to a much-awaited ultimate edition. The feedback circuit, ODNF, which is vital to sound quality, was upgraded to the latest version of the high-class specifications. L-505u has newly incorporated a pre/power separation switch to adapt various system environments, high-quality sound input selector IC that has been used in our flagship model, C-1000f, and more. The music essence has proceeded to the superior level along with sufficient power of 100W + 100W (8Ω). The champagne gold color (limited edition) is also available to coordinate with conventional models.

L-507u

L-507u – $7000

The L-507u is a mid-range model delivering ample power of 200W rated output at 4Ω load. It is equipped with the upgraded ODNF version 3.0 as mainstay of the amplification section which governs sound quality. Low impedance achieved by error detection circuits has resulted in a greatly reduced distortion rate and improved signal-to-noise ratio, and the capacity to maintain a high initial slew rate – all of these characteristics work together to create a powerful and sophisticated musical portrait. With its built-in separation switch for separation of pre-amplifier and power sections, it is possible to add a power amplifier for bi-amplification and use the unit in combination with an AV system. True to its high-end image, the L-507u offers many attractive features such as copper alloy terminals, large size speaker terminals, and a hairline-finished aluminum top panel..

L-509u

L-509u - $10,000

One package consists of complete pre-amplifier and complete power-amplifier, which is an ultimate edition model, L-509u, resulting from seeking our principle, “One Body Separation” to the extreme level. The fully manualized amplifier without any electronic circuit such as microprocessor allows you to enjoy massive operability and has achieved intrinsic beautility as an audio device. L-509u is equipped with the pre-amplification circuit that transmits input signals with optimal impedance, the output circuit that drives a wide variety of speakers in a flexible manner, and strong power supply. This amplifier provides a separate grade in all stages, and is now close to the ideal of an integrated amplifier without the excuse of being multifunctional.

L-550AII

L-550AX – $5390

Luxman introduced the L-550A and L-590A in 2005, since then we have celebrated our 80th anniversary with commemorative components that have reaffirmed Luxman’s status at the pinnacle of high-end audio. In these latest integrated models, the gorgeous texture and three-dimensional performance of our original Class A amplifiers has been retained and further refined. For example, the L-550A II amplifiers featured a new electronic selector switch, adopted from the input section of the C-1000f control amplifier; while the L-550Ax series now uses a variation of the LECUA discrete volume control first introduced in the C-1000f.
