    Re: Luxman M900u Monos and C900u

    Hi Mike

    First, I would like compliment you for your You Tube videos. They are fantastic.

    I wonder if can give me your personal opinion on something.
    I recently bought a Luxman M-900U that I really like and that I feel it's a great match for my B&W 800D3.
    It replaced my Simaudio Moon Evolution 860A.
    I'm using a Simaudio Moon 740P preamp.
    In your opinion, what would be the best upgrade, replace the 740P with a C-900U or keep the 740P and buy another M-900U?
    Thank you in advance for your time.
    Happy new year!

    Hi, welcome and thank you for the kind words. Buy another 900u would be my recommendation. The pre change will be a lateral move. The 900u will take your power from 150 watts to over 600 in mono mode, and still handle the impedance swings of the 800D3 just fine. You will hear a much bigger soundstage, more relaxed and effortless presentation.

    Keep us posted on how things work out!

    Hi

    Has anyone tried the Luxman M900-u in horizontal biamping vs bridged mono vertical biamping?

    Kind regards

    Dear Mike,

    To be clear, instead of 2 bridged Luxman M-900u's, you'd still prefer the Pass Labs X260.8 monoblocks? These have less than half the Luxman's power. If so, it's not about watts per channel but rather the style or character of the power?

    P.S. I have no opportunity to go out and compare these components myself, so I'm very grateful for you sharing your expertise here.
