IAG UK, the British arm of International Audio Group got in touch with Hifi Pig to tell us they are pleased to announce LUXMAN_IAG_NEwstheir appointment as UK distributor of the Luxman brand with immediate effect.

Formed in Japan in 1925 – the same year that Japanese radio broadcasts began – Luxman is one of the world’s oldest audio brands. It was originally created to deliver a domestic alternative to radio equipment emanating from the United States and Europe, and came to prominence globally as a leading manufacturer of hi-fi separates in the 1970s and 1980s. In 2009, Luxman became part of the International Audio Group’s family of audio brands, sitting alongside famous British names including Audiolab, Castle, Mission, Quad and Wharfedale.

The brand’s extensive range includes solid-state and valve-based amplifiers, SACD players, USB DACs, headphone amps, phono amps, turntables and cables.

Since acquiring Luxman in 2009, IAG had maintained the brand’s relationship with its previous UK  distributor, Select Audio. However, as Luxman approaches its 90th anniversary, IAG believes the time is right to incorporate it within IAG UK’s distribution portfolio, alongside the other famous names.

“Luxman is an audio brand with an illustrious heritage,” said Steve Macintyre, Sales Manager for IAG UK. “There is strong interest among UK-based audio dealers and their customers, and with Luxman’s 90th anniversary just around the corner, now is the perfect time to drive the brand forward in the UK. Products like

the L-505uX and L-550AX integrated amplifiers are a tantalising proposition for music lovers, with their time- honoured build quality, distinctive VU meters and sumptuous sonic performance. Luxman represents classic high-end audio from the Far East, for those with a penchant for something a little different. We’d also like to take this opportunity to thank Select Audio for their sterling work with the brand over the years.”
