For Sale Luxman CL Tube Preamplifier

DandyMay 2, I have no personal exp. Blue ShadowMay 3, The CL is a sleeper imho. Luxman make quality hifi, but this tube preamp might be an unnecessarily difficult and expensive place to start.

Dandy saying you could do better with something simpler if you just computer is not luxjan the right words. In my experience, a tube preamp with a SS power amp c-l34 not offer the same tube experience. There isn’t anything simpler that is as good as the CL Yes, my password is: DandyMay 4, This is an excellent preamp.

If you can afford it and it is in good shape you won’t be disappointed. 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.

A CDP can easily drive a power amp without a preamp. No, create an account now. Do you use a lot of different sources and listen to vinyl? Looks pretty simple, actually.

Id sure not mind having a luxman tube pre. Your name or email address: Attached photo is just a reference image. Here’s just one current thread describing a cl-43 restoration. Bidding on both these Lux units does go high and for a reason, they are very nice units. Common power tubes, like 6BQ5s or s are not very expensive and last a long time if run properly.


As far as SS power and tube preamp, that is the way to go for fewer issues. Log in or Sign up.

Luxman CL-34

Do you already have an account? Blue ShadowJun 15, The heat is something I’m concerned about with Lux gear and would look over any purchase for any darkened boards and such. I use a Luuxman pre all the time with my tube amps. Share This Page Tweet. CCallilMay 3, Hans Hilberink’s site has nice info on SS Luxmans, including the model you mention: If there are none, then this preamp has proper control of the heat from those many 12AX7 tubes.

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.

They won’t sound like this unit. I googled CL32 and see it is tube. The pre-amp will probably end up going for more than I can afford right now, but it’s brought up a lot of questions.

Harmon Kardon Citation I don’t have experience of Luxman gear, but it has a good reputation for sound quality. 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. You must log in or sign up to reply here. I use a couple different tube preamps with the usual SS power amps, using the Luxman tube amps at times, too.


All very nice gear. 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 obsession with industrial design, stuff like this just makes me happy. It looks as if there was a wood surround option that disposes of the original top cover.

They are known to sound pretty good. Used to sell this one, never owned one but have a number of Lux units including their tube power amps. The Bottlehead kits are also less sophisticated as far as flexibility goes but they may sound as good.

Its a great pre IMO. Luxman is known for topnotch audio stuff, so lhxman that pre shouldnt be a prob. Power tubes cost much more than signal tubes and they need to be changed more often so a tube pre is the way cl-334 get some tube sound into the system. I’d just be worried about the lack of ventilation over that gaggle of 12AX7 tubes CCallilMay 2, The CL replaced the CL so its specs are better as expected. 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.

Quieter, lower distortion and such.
