    Yeah if it was Accuphase it could be a keeper. Now if it was Tokyo Sound Company or SUN Audio.....yeah that would be good.

    I can't offer a fair opinion on Luxman, I've only seen photos.

    My weakness is that I love to hear different systems and compare how they sound. When I worked in Manhattan I could walk into great stores like Harvey Sound and Leonards or the AR listening booth in Grand Central Station and just have a ball. I also bought lots of gear!

    After I retired and moved into the country, the beaches were beautiful but the stores were gone. My retirement income is nice but not at the level I pulled in while working, so my purchases are more thoughtful. I have a major birthday coming up at the end of the year and I am thinking about getting just one more item, but I don't know what! :dunno:

    Stepup the ladder and buy better components. The sound will be much more satisfying, the components not so readily available and you will have to save your money. And remember you need to save a dollar for every dollar you spend on toys for some day you will want to retire and keep your precious toys and not have to sell them.

    I went to pick up a Yamaha receiver RX-V275 for my brother the other day. Well while I'm talking to guy and decided to buy it for 50.00 he tells me to hold on while he gets another receiver I might be interested in. OMG the guy comes out with a pioneer SX-1080 and tells me I can have it for 75.00 but one channel is out. I have it now in the repair shop getting fixed. He also wanted to sell me bose 901s for 100.00 but they all had to be RE-foam.
