But once you have tried the good stuff it’s easy to go cold turkey; ask any addict! £10 says that @Rockchild starts searching out local dealers for something Class A within a month
Packing up some speakers today made in saltash cornwall ...revolver ..those were the daysRight! Decision made! I’ll wait.
I cannot ignore the excellent service I’ve had From Tony at HIFI Corner. They could not be further away but the service I’ve had from him over the years has been excellent. Price is important but service provided is just as important! Bearing in mind a dealer in Cornwall last year failed to answer a sales enquiry in his own county is appalling.
With all the ups and downs of being messed around by some manufacturers who can’t be bothered to come back to the dealer for their customer is downright disgraceful. Bad on you Exposure!
I’m on the priority list for Luxman and the first 507z in the next UK delivery is mine.

I have the perfect antidote to the addictive spend, no matter how good the piece of equipment is.
You simply say, " hmm very nice but it will throw my system out of balance". Note the full stop!
If still unsure, simply turn your system on, select something you really like , sit back and confirm and say, "yes, now why would I want to spend £££££££ .
If you want to borrow my Sugden A21al for a few months I'm happy to bung it in the post to you Jon.Just got to remember that this has actually been going on since February when I looked at an upgrade or a end game amp. Due to issues of amps going back and forwards several times, I’m getting tired. I just don’t want to be getting use to one thing then having it pulled from under me and then a different sound and so on etc.
Anyway, some developments this afternoon so will see what’s a foot shortly.
Ahh, I forgot it had tone controls, didn’t try them as I had it in line straight all the time. At no point did I need to deviateI had a brief dem if the 507Z yesterday whilst collecting my Cary Audio DMS-650. It was powering some Martin Logan’s. It was interesting that the dealer had felt the need to increase the treble on the tone control to get a sound that he liked. I don’t think it was necessary, personally, but maybe it was just too ‘polite’ for his ears. I could have walked away with it if I hadn’t just blown my wad on the Cary
I was up until the wee hours listening to the Cary via Pathos Classic One Mk III and Audio Physic Tempo 35, wondering if there was any point trying to improve anything further.
It’s extremely talented and I’m missing the demo model already!I was reading a comment on you tube about the Luxman z and the guy who I believe is Japanese made some very informative remarks. He said, renewing the circuit is a big decision .
The results are clearly audible with an increase in dynamics, detail and spatial reproduction, whilst retaining Luxmans smooth tonality.
Interesting for me as he said what I feel,
as I have never felt drawn to the Luxman sound until this unit came along.
It definitely has a different presentation which is a marked improvement for my taste.
Yes I will check it out if my 25, year old Restek goes again. Had it repaired 3 years ago and spent 8 months without music. Didn't mind, we were coming out of lock down. I would give the Z a try but I keep my system all Restek because I am mindful not to tip the sound it delivers as a system, out of balance.It’s extremely talented and I’m missing the demo model already!
