Luxman L-505uX II Review, Best Amplifier Under $5,000?

Luxman 505uX II Integrated Amplifier

Price: US$4,495.00 (Jan, 2020)

Overall Rating: ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️

This may be one of the best amplifier under US$5K currently available in the market, Overall great musical sound with big sound stage, pleasing highs, musical midrange, good bass performance, excellent sound signature, If you’re not picky like me this is a great choice, for me I would preferred a little more tighter bass and more precision in higher frequencies, I felt like this is not a major upgrade from my current amp, overall refinement is about 10% -15% better for significant sum of expense. To get significantly better sound than my current amp I may have to go up on higher price point than this from major high end brands.

Pros: Beautiful Design, Very Good Sound.

Cons: It’s hard to justify the price difference from sound quality.
