I'm running my M-120A together with a C-300 Preamp, driving B&W DM801's.
It is powerful and clean, certainly strong enough for the heavy speakers. The best setup I've experienced so far in this price range.
I can only recommend this Amp.

Nice looking. Serious heft to the unit. Very clean sounding, and usually more under the hood than the specs rating. Would like to get another so as to run bridged mono out of both.

Anyone aware of where I can find a copy of the original owners manual for this M120A amp and the C120A pre-amp?

Luxman M120A Speaker Connection

I have been given a Luxman M120A which after a bit of research I believe is quite a good amp!

It's used in a home DJ set up and I currently have a pair of Wharfedale floorstanders connected (6 ohm). I have just purchased a pair of Alesis monitors (4 ohm).

At the output terminals of the Luxman it states loads of 4 to 16 ohms can be connected, when using the 'Main' speakers only; and that loads of 8 to 16 ohms can be connected when using 'Mains + Remote'.

Basically, I just want to make sure I can connect my new Alesis and Wharfedales to the Main and Remote outputs without any major issues. I pressume the 'Main + Remote' rating of 8 to 16 ohms is the sum of the two connected pairs of speakers (i.e. 10 ohms in my case); as if this was the rating in parallel you would be hard pushed to get two sets of speakers to be at 8 ohms (would be two pairs of 16 ohms in parallel).

I never knew load 'matching' was so complicated!!
