The history of the LUXMAN audio brand began in 1925, at the birth of radio broadcasting. LUXMAN has paid particular attention to the world of audio and has gained high reputation as a quality brand of high-end audio products both domestically and internationally. People tend to open their mind to natural things and react negatively to the unnatural. Natural sound, without coloration, develops an intimacy between the music and the listener. Naturally and purely reproduced music resonates with the listener’s imagination. LUXMAN reflects this effect in our product development. Music that features a performer's true passion and which a recording engineer has worked on precisely benefits from the fine nuances in sound which LUXMAN aims to reproduce, conveying the sprit of the artist and the enthusiasm of the performance. We strive to bring to the listener the experience of unlimited, pure music. Composers, performers and recording engineers have poured their true feelings into our favorite pieces of music. LUXMAN would be satisfied if the listener could experience those same passions through our products. LUXMAN has celebrated its 90th anniversary and hopes to discover new excitement through wonderful music and to continue to share that pleasure with everyone.

First time in 40 years since the launch of LMC-1 in 1981 and LMC-2 in 1982

2. Natural and extensive unified Luxman sound from the input to the output

3. The semi-open body structure helps reduce resonance and the effects of reflected sound

4. Thorough pursuit of ideal sound quality by repeating trial production considering materials and structure of cantilever, stylus, chassis

The SHIBATA needle has less audible noise while delivering full range vinyl reading

The aluminum cantilever has a neutral tone that goes well with the SHIBATA needle

Moving coil (MC) type, reducing the weight of the armature Reduces cross-channel sensitivity with directly wound cross mounted coils, to which the L/R power generation coils are wound symmetrically

The UEW coil wire has a radius of 30μm, the thinnest in the range, and is resistant

Using a single point piano wire (Φ0.08mm) support method for accurate vibrationto breakage while ensuring coil winding direction

Circuit structure with minimal loop area reduces external noise

A stylus unit is regarded as acoustically equivalent to a microphone, so resonance and reflected sound

from around the device should be thoroughly suppressed
Outer walls that protect the stylus and cantilever ensure practicality are placed on both sides

Structural chassis with inverted oval curves to reduce resonance and reflections
A carefully pared down body structure with minimal outer wall weight as a resonance countermeasure
