The CL-38u uses SRPP (Shunt Regulated Push Pull) circuitry for all stages to achieve the highest sound quality possible.A genuine phono equalizer is included, the MC-low and MC-high impedance (gain) inputs each have independent MC transformers and are selectable using the MC impedance lever switch.Tone controls enable the listener to fine tune the sound quality.Refined exterior design and newly added balanced inputs make this vacuum tube control amp a new standard for its generation.
Since the launch of our SQ-5A vacuum tube integrated amplifier in 1961, we have continued making vacuum tube amps without a break. We have produced many models that are highly valued as signature models and satisfied music lovers are enjoying them to this day, even several decades after their release. The CL-38uC and MQ-88uC combine LUXMAN's history of producing fine vacuum tube products and the traditional wisdom and skills gained along the way.
The CL-38uC’s balanced input terminals have dedicated transformers, improving integration with other high-end equipment. The built-in phono equalizer circuit is compatible with MM and MC cartridges and is equipped with step-up transformers for MC cartridges an independent left & right two step gain selector. The three-position switchable crossover frequencies for bass and treble tone controls enable the listener to fine tune the signal to the desired tonal character.
