Luxman will soon be releasing a new flagship AB class integrated amplifier L-509X which they say will feature the performance of separate amplifiers in a single unit. 

“We have poured all the experience and technology gained from years of developing amplifiers into this model L-509X. For audiophiles who are looking for a high quality, multi-functional, but simple system, L-509X is what they are looking for. Moreover, L-509X expressive power offers quality relaxing time as well as touches the deep core of your heart so that you can sink into the world of music so deeply” says the company’s recent press release.

The latest ODNF version 4.0 provides a fast initial slew rate and wide bandwith with lower distortion. It uses a  88-step LECUA 1000 attenuator system, which luxman say means sound deterioration is minimized and smooth, accurate volume control is achieved.

The power supply unit is equipped with independent left and right channel large capacity blocking capacitors, equivalent to those in the M-700u power amplifier. For the pre-amp section, a discreetly configured buffer circuit, equivalent to that of Luxman’s C-900u pre-amp, is installed, which they say improves driving power while maintaining the clarity of the signal.

Regarding the exterior, Luxman have chosen a symmetrical design, centered around a pair of traditional analogue level meters. The top panel, with its distinctive ventilation, similar to their flagship power amp, the M-900u, also displays bold functionality. Large aluminium knobs source selector and volume control, are capped with gleaming hairline finish and blasted white barrels.

The design of the L-509X covers all the possible interior and exterior improvements and promises to impress many audio fans, crossing the boundaries of integrated units and separates.
