What are the best sounding Accuphase or Luxman amps/preamps (ie separates) that you have heard and would recommend?


I think that’s a great choice since you can push your speakers. Plus, Class A is awesome! 

One of the best amps I have ever heard is the Luxman MQ-300, beats any Accuphase (I own the Accu E-650). In SS, I like Accu better than Lux, but Lux tube amps really kick butt (the LX-380 tube integrated might be as good or better as my E-650 at half the price).

I am hoping that Accuphase separates will be a little better than their integrated amps...

I have had about five years experience listening with a Accuphase A-75 paired with a C-3850.. before that I was a ASR Emitter II user...

Accuphsse is so good paired with the right speakers...I am a loyal customer for however many years I have left.. end of story

I currently have the Accuphase C260 Control Amp paired with the Class A- Accuphase A 20 y Amp. as my solid state option and could not be happier. The way I  would describe the sound is musical, I can listen for hours without fatigue, wonderful soulful mids and laid back highs with just the right punch in the base. I don't think you would be dissatisfied with any of the Accuphase offerings. I listen at moderate levels and never exceeded 25% volume level for a medium sized room and 87 db sensitivity speakers, (Wilson Benesch Square 2, 2 REL Subs).
