The CL-38uC is a custom vacuum tube control amplifier made by LUXMAN, it uses SRPP (Shunt Regulated Push Pull) circuitry in all stages to achieve the highest sound quality possible. It features a genuine phono equalizer, which allows it to be used with a wide range of turntables and cartridges. The MC-low and MC-high impedance (gain) inputs each have independent MC transformers and are selectable using the MC impedance lever switch. This allows the listener to choose the optimal gain setting for their particular cartridge and turntable setup.
In addition to the phono equalizer, the CL-38uC also has tone controls which enable the listener to fine-tune the sound quality to their preference. The tone controls are implemented using high-quality components to ensure that the sound quality remains faithful to the original recording.
The exterior design of the CL-38uC is refined, with a sleek and elegant look that will complement any high-end audio system. The inclusion of newly added balanced inputs is a nice touch, which will allow the CL-38uC to be easily integrated with other high-end equipment, providing a wider range of options for the listener.
LUXMAN has a long history of producing vacuum tube amplifiers and has been making them without a break since the launch of the SQ-5A vacuum tube integrated amplifier in 1961. Over the years, they 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 combines LUXMAN's history of producing fine vacuum tube products and the traditional wisdom and skills gained along the way.
The CL-38uC also uses high-quality components that are carefully selected to ensure the best possible sound quality. For example, LUXMAN's own high-quality transformers and blocking capacitors are used, along with Nichicon-made, high voltage, metalized polypropylene film coupling capacitors, which have been introduced for their supple, natural tone. Improved audio quality has been realized by shortening the internal wiring.
The CL-38uC is based on the latest technology and design, but the exterior styling evokes a classic image from the heyday of vacuum tube audio products. The CL-38uC is modeled on the CL-35, which was released in 1970. This gives the amplifiers a timeless look that will appeal to both audiophiles and music lovers who appreciate traditional design features.
