As far as SS power and tube preamp, that is the way to go for co-34 issues. The Bottlehead kits are also less sophisticated as far as flexibility goes but they may sound as good.
I don’t have experience of Luxman gear, but it has a good reputation for sound quality. Log in or Sign up.

It’s a simpler design than some other Lux tube preamps for sure but the build quality is all there, and much better parts and build construction than the later CA SS preamp. Power tubes cost much more than signal tubes and they need to be changed more often so a tube pre is the way to get some tube sound into the system.
The CL replaced the CL so its specs are better as expected. In my experience, a tube preamp with a SS power amp does not offer the same tube experience. I’d just be worried about the lack of ventilation over that gaggle of 12AX7 tubes No, create an account now. There is something to using a different unit for just computer sounds as there are a bunch of inexpensive Chinese preamp things that will work. There isn’t anything simpler that is as good as the CL Here’s just one current thread describing a good restoration.
Your name or email address: Recently I’ve become engrossed by vintage audio, and I’ve been slowly working on my own setup and learning xl-34 the way. Luxman is known for topnotch audio stuff, so buying that pre shouldnt be a prob.

Perhaps if you built one that has ventilation built in a la old Fisher C receiver casesyou would have the cool-man aesthetic with cooling to boot. CCallilMay 2, Luxman make quality hifi, but this tube preamp might be an unnecessarily difficult and expensive place to start.
DandyMay 4, The pre-amp will probably end up going for more than I can afford right now, but lc-34 brought up a lot of questions. Dandy saying you could do better with something simpler if you just computer is not using the right words. Harmon Kardon Citation Do you use a lot of different sources and listen to vinyl?

Luxman CL Tube Pre Amplifier for sale.
Its a great pre IMO. Share This Page Tweet. DandyMay 2, A CDP can easily drive a power amp without a preamp. The heat is something I’m concerned about with Lux gear and would look over any purchase for any darkened ccl-34 and such.
If so, this might be what you need, but if you just use a computer soundcard and CD player, you could do better with a simple tube power amp, e. When I said ‘simpler’, I did not mean a simpler preamp, but that a power amp will have a simpler circuit to understand and get the tube sound.
Common power tubes, luman 6BQ5s or s are not very expensive and last a long time if run properly. If there are none, then this preamp has proper control of the heat from those many 12AX7 tubes.
Quieter, lower distortion and such. This is an excellent preamp. Blue ShadowMay 3, Hans Hilberink’s site has nice info on SS Luxmans, including lhxman model you mention: I googled CL32 and see it is tube. Yes, my password is: Used to sell this one, never owned one but have a number of Lux units including their tube power amps. It looks as if there was a wood surround option that disposes of the original top cover.
Attached photo is just a reference image. They are known to sound pretty good. CCallil luxmwn, May 3, They won’t sound like this unit. A listing recently came up for a Luxman CL, and I think it looks like an incredible piece of gear, being a design student with an luxkan with industrial design, stuff like this just makes me happy.
If you can afford it and it is in good shape you won’t be disappointed.
