    I don’t know what it sounds like - probably really good being Luxman - but it’s gorgeous.
    Sincerely,

    Re: New Luxman 595a Limited Edition

    No meters. But it does looking awesome. Would be nice if there is a matching red SACD player

    What is MSRP? Around same range as 590AXii?

    Class A is great. Wood cabinet is nice. I prefer the look of the 590AXII and the meters but I am sure they will have no problem selling all 300 units.

    Is this new puppy going to replace your 590AXii? It might perform well with your AG

    Yes, it will. The 590 was awesome on everything so far. It looks like the 595a has internal improvements. Luxman in general is spectacular.

    I moved the 590 to help fund another purchase, now it’s time to step up to the 595a. Timing worked out well. I got lucky for once.

    Sure I’ll miss the meters but overall I used to keep the lights/display off so in reality, it’s fine not having them. I’m all about any internal improvements.

    The 2 differences I could find are a newer version of ODNF feedback circuit and the omission of tape loops.
    What other internal improvements have you identified?
    Gotta admit I love the design!

    I honestly don’t know specifics but a friend mentioned he was told of many improvements. He’s trying to get a list of changes.

    Joe,
    I love the looks of this amp. I would love to know the changes if/when your friend is able to find out.

    Re: New Luxman 595a Limited Edition

    I read a a couple of blogs and translated with google so I’m not sure how accurate the translations are but here’s what they said:

    The Audio Union blog had this subjective comment from Luxman about the sound of this new amp- “When I asked the manufacturer earlier, he seems to have a softer and warmer sound than the L-590AX II, the so-called "Lux's A-class" sound. I couldn't hear the sound today, but I will listen to it later and report it again.”

    Though another blog,LUXMAN「L-595A LIMITED」を聴きました : 僕たちのオーディオ by Soundpit
    listened to it along with the D-10x and wrote...
    “According to Mr. Sales, "This amp has a different sound from the previous Luxman."
    When I listen to it, it certainly has a slightly different impression from the warm and warm image of the so-called "luxe sound".
    It is a sound with a relaxed high range and a wide range.
    For Luxman, which is characterized by a slightly mellow sound, it's a fairly aggressive approach.
    But if you want to combine it with a new speaker, I think this kind of seasoning will be more suitable.
    I think that it is a sound make-up that can be enjoyed like audio with the high resolution of D-10X.”

    Thank you. I guess the translation is a little wonky but I can’t imagine it being terrible.

    Re: New Luxman 595a Limited Edition

    Interesting, but why even bother with a 300 unit production. Its either not all that special/unique or they're going to keep going with production and make some small changes to keep the "limited" designation of the original 300.

    With the varying translations I've looked at, I'm under the impression that it's 300 per region or something like that because I read that it's specifically 300 for Japan on more than one page.

    Originally I heard that the 595a wasn’t coming to the USA or even North America. I’m happy they changed their mind.

    For those units shipping to US, will they be in US voltage? If only 300 units manufactured for Japanese market, they will be only in Japan voltage.

    The wood was nice but all the push buttons make it look like a LuxIntosh

    The REASON is that US government regulations don’t allow wood over any piece of equipment for CSA safety reasons. Japan apparently isn’t concerned.

    Re: New Luxman 595a Limited Edition

    First Ive heard of this, how does Accuphase and Axiss do it?

    And how do Active speakers in wood cabinets get through as well? Or any subwoofer for that matter?

    Is the wood on top? The 595 is wood all around, not just sides.

    I asked Luxman and this is what they told me.

    Maybe that’s why Accuphase costs more here!

    Wood on top and sides

    Perhaps CD players and preamps are different?

    Gorgeous! Wood top or metal top, both looking nice. Look like there are two versions of metal top

    I like both and prefer it to wood personally...

    The next 590MK3 will look good for sure!

    You know what surprises me to this day? Krell was chewed up online for building amplifiers with heatsinks that were inside of their cases, or "inside a box". Yet Luxman has been doing this for years on their Class A amplifiers and no one has dared to say a thing. Funny how people can be.
