LUXMAN's CL-1000 is the pinnacle of vacuum tube control amplifiers, with a successor to the classic C-1000 released in 1975. Drawing on decades of expertise in vacuum tube audio, this state-of-the-art amplifier features transformer-assisted LECUTA volume control and super permalloy core output transformers for heightened sonic clarity. The walnut shell with a glossy rosewood finish adds a graceful, homely touch. Experience the cutting-edge technology and musical excellence offered by the CL-1000.
LUXMAN's acclaimed LECUA attenuator system has been refined to become the LECUTA, featuring a 34-step rotary switch on the front panel, which activates 34 relays outside the signal path. This triggers 34 taps on the left and right transformers to adjust the volume in precise measures. The sound quality is improved through the use of FINEMET® core material from Hitachi Metals, Ltd., providing high saturation flux density and low core loss. Enjoy an uncompromising sound experience even at a low volume.※FINEMET is a registered trademark of Hitachi Metals, Ltd.
In a design reminiscent of our classic C-1000, the front panel uses the latest precision machining to superpose three thick aluminum layers into one massive, anti-resonant assembly. The aluminum provides a graceful counterpoint to the cabinet, which we cover in natural walnut with a rosewood gloss finish.
