The joy of analogue reproduction is the indulgence of the harmonic density and tonal character of vinyl playback, faithfully reproducing sound vibration and resonance inscribed on analogue records without interruption
The EQ-500 phono equaliser amplifier is a vacuum tube design for all stages to provide the ultimate experience in the expressive and colourful reproduction of music.
Fine adjustment and switching functions that are easily accessible on the elegant front panel allow you to enjoy the real pleasure of analogue reproduction.
The debut of LUXMAN’s masterpiece phono equaliser amplifier, the EQ-500, brings a new dimension that offers an extensive menu of the finest details of analogue reproduction allowing you to recreate that ideal sound from your memory.
The phone equaliser amplifier plays a unique role as part of an amplification system with respect to the characteristics and delicacy of signals.
Because of this uniqueness, phone equalisers have been designed using various kinds of circuit methods and elements and have captivated the interest of enthusiasts for whom the detail of the sound is paramount.
The EQ-500 is equipped with the circuit technology and musical essence inherent to its predecessor, the E-06 from LUXMAN.
First launched in the 1980’s, the E-06 is still a highly respected masterpiece of the CR type.
This renowned circuit technology has been newly improved in the EQ-500 and uses vacuum tubes for all of the amplifier elements to bring the spirit of analogue sound inscribed on the vinyl discs into life.
