My favourite vintage receiver. Very high built quality, output stage as modules at rear, very clear PCB an wiring, thus service friendly, no thermal issues. If you open the cover you can see that engineers had free hands to develop this wonderful unit - even it has plastic in front of the scale and foil on the cover. Fine front panel design, 2x phone (very well sounding), 2x Aux. PCBs are completey soldered along the copper lines. Bought this unit in 2015 with an amplifier issue (speaker relay cuts off when power is raised, didn't pass the 'private investigations' test from Dire Straits), which was an easy fix on the corresponding board. Recapped the output modules as the electrolytic capacitors were visible damaged which resulted in significant sound increase - more warmth and much better bass resolution - everything else is still original, it's used nearly every day and has enough power to entertain your neighbours. Now, only three years later, these units are very hard to find - if you have the chance to get one take it - but it won't be cheap.

The highest, MONSTER model of the Luxman R series.
2 x 75/125 Watt into 4/8 Ohm. Weight c.a. 20 kg
Made from the best components. A great phono preamplifier.
It looks great and sounds is excellent (unique, warm and complete).
Rare to buy.



re: R-1500

This is a great receiver with a beautiful look. Tuner section is amazing and generally it is a very well made unit.

On top of every joy this monster bring to my listening room I can also play with different filters and equalizer set ups.

The best receiver I owned from this era and believe me I owned a lot.
