Can tell you that my SF Elipsa SE sings so sweetly with L509x.

Hi

here also A Luxman l509x owner.
I came from a NAD M12 and M22 combo.
I was looking for a Mark Levinson 585 but after hearing a few tones it was not my cup of Tea. My hifi dealer had also the Hegel H590 for comparison, that sounds nicer to my ears. When he ask me for a demo at my house, I say okey.
When he came to my house he brings also the Luxman l509x with him.

After a comparison with both the of amp's on my Dynaudio Confidence 20 speaker's the Luxman was a absolute winner to my ears.

The luxman is more clean and very detailed amp, and very well build.
As DAC I use the Mola-Mola Tambaqui and streamer the Grimm MU1, great combo.

question:

aim looking for a good power cable, any suggestions?
Luxman's manual say's use the standard power cable.

thanks

Martin... also try the Furutech power cables that Ben makes himself. It equals a 4K power cable for much less.
I've heard them quite a few times now, and they're great.
I also heard them on your amp.

Yesterday we tested with serveral powercables.
We had non shielded and shielded cables.

We found-out that non shielded cables gives the best result with the luxman l509x.
A better soundstage and a better controlled bass.
