Comment vaut un Luxman C-1000 à votre avis? Puisque je ne l'ai pas en main, est-ce que quelqu'un sait quels tubes sont utilisés et quels sont les remplacements possible? Je crois qu'ils n'ont jamais été changé depuis '75. De plus je crois que quelques condensateurs devront être mis-à-jour...

Merci!

Peut-être trouveras-tu des informations ici ?

J'ai aussi trouvé ceci sur un autre forum :

"Don't know if you're still checking here for responses but here goes. From "The Complete Buyer's Guide to Stereo/HiFi Equipment", Feb. 1978: "M-2000, $995; power: 120W/CH; 0.05%THD; DF 100;0.8V In. Sens. The Lux "M" series of power amplifiers is characterized by conservative designs, elegant appearance and quality workmanship. The M-2000, while quite a bit more expensive than other amps in its power class, must be considered as a good value, for it is the type of product that will last. And as far as sound quality is concerned, we have only to point out that many high-end speaker companies use Lux amps to demonstrate their speakers at trade shows." "Popular HiFi" an English publication from Oct. 1979 has an interview with Tim Paravincini where he discusses briefly his foray into design work for Lux in 1972 where he helped design the C1000 preamp and M4000 power amp which, "in his words, (were) the first generation of Japanese super-spec amps." It is an interesting read 25 years down the road as he discusses his approach to the use of negative feedback and the Japanese obsession with specifications, the general "lack of inventiveness" of the Japanese products and "The problem becomes 'what are you going to feature on your amplifiers?'" as a response to design driven by marketing. "High Fidelity's Test Reports" from 1977 states the original price of the C-1000 at $895 and reviews the piece with phrases as follow; "the number of controls it presents exceeds the usual plethora by a wide margin". The next nine paragraphs are devoted to a description of those features. The performance is described as such: "at ... 2 volts, THD is less than 0.0064% for all conditions, and intermodulation distortion is 0.002% or less." "No concessions are made to quadriphonics, present or future ..." "The unit is designed more for complete convenience than for elaborate signal processing - in short it is more a Rolls Royce than a Ferrari. But if you are a sybriatic audiophile with the budget to match, the C-1000 will pamper you as few preamps can." If you have not purchased this product I would suggest you find out who can and will service these pieces as Lux disowned many of the exotic products they produced as early as the mid 80's. Lux has changed ownership and most importantly U.S. distributorship several times which can present overwhelming if not insurmountable challenges to parts replacement for product from a company that sold a tube amplifier designed around an already obsolete tube number just because it was the best sounding amp they had ever heard. If you are now the owner of this equipment let me direct you to a response I wrote to Gig who owns a McIntosh MA6100 from the same period. The suggestions are about getting the most from a piece of equipment that has some years on it and can be found in the "amps" section under the rough heading of "amplifier for Maggies". If you are interested, contact me and I will arrange to get you the full review and the accompanying charts."

Salut FrankDIY,

Je ne connais pas la réputation de cette série, j'ai commencé à connaitre cette marque vers fin 70.

Mais je pense que le plus que j'irais serait 100-150$.

Pour certain ça peut paraitre beaucoup, mais d'un autre côté ca reste un Luxman du début, donc avec une certainne valeur... Peut-être que tweaker, ça peut être très suprenant... surtout à lampe...

mes deux cennes.

denbret.

Finalement il y a erreur, ce n'est pas un C-1000, mais bien un L-100 à transistor.
