Website: Luxman LX-380 Integrated

Luxman has been making a serious comeback in recent times and some of their new products like the LX-380 Integrated are a sight for sore eyes. Beautiful old school aesthetic with modern sensibility. Who would not like to touch that brushed aluminium face plate with it's shiny knobs and paddle flip switches? This is a piece of gear that harks back to the golden age of audio.

Positive Feedback Review:
https://positive-feedback.com/reviews/hardware-reviews/luxman-lx-380-integrated/

" ... the Luxman LX-380 looks like it belongs in your grandfather's wood paneled den. However, with speakers of above average sensitivity, the LX-380's performance and style deserves to be the centerpiece of an exceptionally involving system. The LX-380 is a must audition for listeners who value natural sound and acoustic performances."

The facia reminds me of Luxman C1010 preamp I had.
I had bought it from FM Rajiv along with Luxman M4000 to drive Tannoy 15.
Luxman of that era was Designed by Tim da Paravinci.

Followed it up a year later with massive class A Luxman M 06a (alpha). This was when Alpine had control over Luxman.

Aesthetic beauty and sublime sound

Looks very beautiful, I wonder how the sound compares to their SS integrated amps.

Price of this amp I’m INDIA is not at all justified price. I planned then stepped back as could not see value in buying this. Power output is also very conservative. There were days high sensitivity speakers were hit in the market. Today it’s a big challenge.

UK price 6000 pounds
US price $7500
Germany price Euro 7000
Not sure how the price in India is not justified, it is cheaper here than UK, USA and Germany retail.
Usually dealers in India mark up International retail price by 30 - 100%.

Cheers,
Sid

@sidvee I suspect the discontent might be due to the price going up from the 4.2l quoted in this thread to 6.55l now
Oh ok, regardless even at that price - 20% over international price (International price seems to be approx 5.5 lac) - is still decent.
Also it appears there has been some price increase, US retail is now $8000 (the price of $7500 that I saw was in the positive feedback magazine review from early last year).
Cheers,
Sid
