This amp is very well built. The sound is amazingly warm and distinct. The looks is ... for me, like a grownup women in her best years. And ... she knows what she is doing.

I quite agree with nathapresanna.
I have re-capped with Nichicon gold and silmic 2, tried bipolar Nichicon muse but not much difference. Highs are quite nice but lacking bit low range in my opinion. Overall , it is very nicely build and powerfull amplifier. In my tests, frequency range produced nice flat curve as stated in the manual and power output was very close to manufacturers specs. If you can get one, you will be happy. If you repairing one, make sure you change output transistor insulators to silicone type.
(tested with DALI Concept 6 and Paradigm 9se mkII)

Very warm sounding amplifier, op amp phono stage could be better, recapped with silmic and fine gold , muse. Very good detail and musical. Imaging is great, Pcb burns easily if soldering is too hot or too long, need good soldering and skills to work on these.. Otherwise very well built amp..



Giant Transformer

Help help help...
my Luxman L-80V has a busted transformer. No power going to the unit at all. The light on top does not come on and that giant transformer makes a buzzying noise.
I cannot find the specs for the transformer. Any ideas?

Thanx a lot!

Bias and DC offset pots

I recently repaired an L-80V. The service manual has the bias and DC offset pots reversed. VR101 is DC offset, and VR102 is bias.

re: Bias and DC offset pots

^ This is very important! I hadn't read your comment and now the unit I was adjusting is blowing fuses and I can't measure to get it back into spec.

Since no one has posted this here yet, Thanks!
