Luxman MQ-300
 
Has anyone heard this amp? Only 8 WPC but apparently sounds amazing. I will be hearing for myself tomorrow. Hopefully I won't hit the "reset" button and start the whole buying and selling process again!

There is not much out there regarding this tube amp but here is a link to an article.

Anyway - I will be listening to this little gem some time this weekend.

Greg.......What speakers do you plan to drive with the 8 watt amplifier? If you expect to have any headroom for dynamic range without clipping, you will typically be listening to 0.5 watt. This will require very efficient speakers in order to enjoy any level of volume above conversational level.

I will be interested to read your impressions. Let us know the associated equipment and speakers used for the audition.

They will be the Pandora's Box brand speakers!!! The audition will include Paradigm Persona 9H (way over my budget) and Klipsch Cornwalls.

If I go this route, there will definitely be some speaker due dilegnce in order! Obviously no way the Luxman will drive my Aerial 7Ts.

Best,

Greg

I see horns in your future. The Viking Berliner is 96db and pretty good looking too.

Greg.......The Klipsch Cornwall speakers would be a nice match with an 8 watt amplifier. Their 102 decibels efficiency with 1 watt would work well with the Luxman MQ-300.
