Finding a Bookshelf for Luxman C900U/M900U
@darkknight8586  If you trust the seller, that is a steal, but $1500 USD seems too good to be true. I’d proceed with caution. Money aside, the Callas 2014 are excellent and would be right at home with your musical genre and Luxman gear. I drove m... 
Finding a Bookshelf for Luxman C900U/M900U
I’ve been listening in my office/study/lounge for sometime now, after discovering that l prefer the performance there vs other larger rooms. The office dimensions are: 4.2m length x 3.8m width x 4.5m height (vaulted ceiling really helps with over... 
No Output from Hegel H390
Prior to the firmware update did the unit work as expected /pass a signal to the speakers? When you rotate the volume does the front display have the word “damped” ?        
No Output from Hegel H390
Are 100% sure you didn’t inadvertently change the attenuation ? This happened to me on a Hegel H190; There was no output, similar situation. It turned out to the that the volume was essentially scaled to zero. You have to look in the manual and f... 
SimAudio Moon North Collection
What a timely thread! I’ve been a fan of the Simaudio Moon amps for a while traversing from the 330a, 760a, and 860a-v2; I’ve been demoing at home the 641 and 681 components and have been extremely pleased with the design direction they have taken... 
New Pass Labs Go To

Finding a Power Amplifier for Luxman C-900U
@ghdprentice 100% agree with your assessment of the M900u; Had that amp with the C900u, on numerous occasions over the years with Dynaudio Confidence 30, Focal Sopra No2, Dynaudio Confidence 50. Bass was constipated and dry in all cases and in di... 
Luxman vs Accuphase for Harbeth 40.3 XD
@macg19 Congrats! That BAT VK3500 looks great; Keep us posted! I still need to try iso devices under my speakers; I have herbie things between the speakers and Sound Anchor stands.   
Luxman vs Accuphase for Harbeth 40.3 XD
@macg19 Nice thread. I would like to add some additional color for you. This will be long but hopefully not boring 😁 A few years ago, I tried a lovely pair of Harbeth M40.2. At that time I had a system setup in a large room, about 35x40x9 - this ... 
Luxman 590AX II Break-In
@jeffreyw I highly doubt this issue is amplifier/ speaker synergy. It sounds like you want to get serious about solving it, so why not at least rule out room bass mode/null by performing a frequency sweep at your listening position with the gear... 
Luxman 590AX II Break-In
It’s quite possible that the speaker / room/ listening position is manifesting a bass null; I’ve battled this exact symptom for years. If your listening position is near the center of the room this is most likely the culprit.    
I have found out why new cables and tweaks actually work!
Not only could I hear deeper into all of my music but instruments had bodies and height! Diana Krall was so palpably present I wanted to buy her dinner     Bravo Erik! Hilarious 😂 Happy Holidays
