    The M33 is actually pretty awesome. It has really grown on me.

    Now with some time on the 595a, I'm ecstatic. It's starting to relax and open up. I'll need a few hundred hours on it for it to break in like everything else, but it's awesome.

    I'm playing the Esoteric K01XD through the 595A and am amazed at the sound quality.

    I have 3 awesome integrated amps (Job INTegrated, M33 and now the 595A) and love them for different reasons.

    The 595A is a keeper. Seems to run a little hotter than I remember the 590AXII running but I LOVE LUXMAN.

    Thank you gentlemen.

    It’s a keeper. After being on and playing all night, it’s opened up, relaxed and blossomed. Smooth and sweet like a wonderful Luxman amp. It’s awesome.

    The 595A is now a different animal. It's absolutely amazing. Big 3D, open and sweet with absolutely wonderful vocals. Sooooo much better than when first fired up and absolutely stunning now. It's only going to get better.

    I've owned the 590AXII and loved it. This 595A SE has now surpassed my memory of the 590AXII which was/is superb in its own right.

    Thank you very much Buddy. It really is. I was nervous at first but nothing sounds great out of the box and this was fresh from an arduous trip. As it settles, it's so gratifying.

    My 595a is truly my destination amp. Big and bold, yet smooth and sweet sounding. It’s settling in beautifully. Nothing more I can ask for in an integrated.

    Re: Luxman L-595A Special Edition finally arrives !!!

    I asked Luxman the difference between 590 and 595.

    Here is their response:

    What we understand is that there are over 120 parts detail differences between the L-590aXII and L-595ASE;

    * Different main power transformer, with special attention paid to noise entering the circuits. And with special vibration control of the transformer itself.
    * New, special power supply capacitors. Also installed with special vibration control mounting.
    * Anti-resonance chassis design elements implemented in the extreme.
    * Peel coat PCB’s implemented where it can make a difference.
    * Special copper clad critical signal path shielding.
    * Special “Line-1 gold direct onto copper (KAPPA) alloy” RCA style input jacks. (For best sound quality)
    * Special selected Nichicon and Nippon Chemi-Con capacitors used throughout.
    * First introduction of Luxman’s proprietary “ODNF-u” (Only Distortion Negative Feedback – Ultimate) in an integrated amplifier application. (An advancement over ODNF 4.0)
    * Special, very low -impedance speaker relays. (Higher damping factor= 370)

    Re: Luxman L-595A Special Edition finally arrives !!!

    I wonder what contributes to the increase in distortion and 2db reduction in S/N on the line inputs compared to the 590AXII.

    The look of the US version of the 595 without the wood enclosure is really growing on me. The industrial look is striking in the video you posted.
