Luxman CL-38uC Vacuum Tube Preamp offers the highest possible sound quality with SRPP (Shunt Regulated Push Pull) circuitry for all circuits, a genuine phono equalizer with MC transformers and MC impedance lever switch, and tone controls. Its refined exterior design and newly added balanced inputs make it a new standard for its genre. For decades, Luxman has been producing vacuum tube amps, and the CL-38uC and MQ-88uC combine this history with traditional wisdom and modern technology. High-quality components and transformers optimize audio quality, while the 48-hour aging process and JJ Electronic vacuum tube ensure reliability and long life. The classic front panel design is both functional and aesthetically pleasing, and the 440mm chassis has an omnidirectional shielded metal enclosure. SRPP circuitry in the phono equalizer, tone control, and amp sections ensures a flat frequency response, low output impedance, low distortion, and a long tube life

Since the maximum input level at the balanced inputs is equivalent to 2.5 Volts, please be aware that the audio signal may be distorted if you connect a device with a higher output level (higher output voltage). There is no problem when using Luxman products (CD players etc.). For details, please refer to the instruction manual for the equipment to be used.
