1. "I thought this was a $10,000 amplifier", exclaimed Hugh Fountain III after he listened to the product for the first time.

    CL-38u Tube Preamplifier with onboard phono stage, tone control and remote control is Luxman's latest addition to its Classic Series, now retails for $4,200 in N. America. On A Higher Note, its exclusive distributor for U.S. and Canada is showing it for the first time at the Rocky Mountain Music Fest Oct 10 - 12 in Denver.

    Compared to its predecessor solution, a 3-box combo (CL-88u control amp, EQ-88 tube MM phono stage and MT-88 Phon MC Step up Transformer) that carried a $9,000 price tag, the CL-38u is the perfect vacuum tube control center for the listener who appreciates tonal color and wants to derive the maximum pleasure from his music playback system with a kind price tag.

    Luxman designed this preamp to pair with the MQ-88 Tube Power Amp, its D-38u CD Player with Tube & SS output stages, and its PD-171 turntable for the classic look in an ensemble.
