After all the amps I have owned and due to issues with my hearing, I have come to the conclusion that Luxman Class A amplification provides we with the sonic signature I have been looking for. Still going through the break in process but I’m very pleased to hear where it’s heading.

Of course, I have my trusty PrimaLuna integrated as well, if I’m ever in the mood for tubes!

Glad to hear that you’ve finally settled on an amp, Greg. Time to enjoy the music.

The very same conclusion and same two items I have settled on as well. Congrats on the 590AXII Greg.

My Luxman and PrimaLuna take turns driving the Harbeths. In fact it has been a few months and it is PrimaLuna's turn to entertain me for the next month or two. Well executed Class A has always been agreeable to my ears with speakers that are not too forward sounding and Toobage is also very good for soul.

I am using a McIntosh MA8900 in my main system and have a Yamaha A-S2100 in my secondary rig. I also have used the Yamaha A-S2000.

Picked up a Mark Levinson No.383 (100wpc@8ohm). Have found it to be everything the various reviews have said it would be. A wonderful piece and the best sounding integrated amp I've had grace any of my systems.
