Anyone else order Caladans from Clayton Shaw?
@middlemass  I feel ya. Agree about the customer service. It took 2 online inquiry, an email and a phone call before I got a call back from Clayton. Compare this to the Eversolo I bought online and the owner called me the same day to thank me for... 
The Psychology of Constant (Equipment) Change
I myself wonder about my gear fetish; 3 amplifiers and 4 sets of speakers, soon to be 5. I just like to mix things up a bit.. matching amps and speakers. I wonder though if I sold everything and bought just one system would I like the sound qualit... 
Anyone else order Caladans from Clayton Shaw?
I ordered a pair in cherry the week before Christmas. Confirmed the charge to Spatial Audio on my CC but never received a confirmation email or any other response from CSAL. I’ve sent two on line inquiries through their website but no response. Cu... 
Buying from Japan...Accuphase or Luxman what are the costs ? import duties etc
I have purchased two new Luxman amplifiers from Japan on EBay ;550axII and 505axII. I paid about $150 import fees on one of the amplifiers but zero on the other. Don’t know why. I filled out the customs form online. Both units arrived in perfect c... 
Luxman leaves me wanting
I have the Super Nines and two Luxmans: the 550axII and the LX-380. Before I bought the SN's from a dealer in Dallas (who btw demos the Lux-Devore amp-speaker combination) I sent John Devore an email and asked about the Luxman- Devore match up and... 
Newer Blues Artists or Recordings
Might want to take a listen to the Teskey Brothers. nice bluesy Motown vibe to their music.       
Upgraded my cables and they transformed my system!!!
I just switched from Cardas iridium RCA interconnects to Zafino Arcadia OCC XLR from an Eversol DMP-6 to Musical Fidelity 6si > Harbeth 30.2XD and was immediately blown away by the improvement in overall sound quality. I was hoping the XLR conn...

Mine sound excellent with my Luxman 550axII but not so good with the Luxman LS380  
McIntosh to Luxman?
I had Mac for years but alway lusted for Luxman. When I lost my Mac gear in a flood I tried several different brands: Cary, NAD, Yamaha, Vincent, Cronus Magnum, before finally settling on Luxman. I’ve now had 4 different Luxman amps and currently ... 
UPS. Friend Or Foe?
Sorry to hear your'e going thru this. IMO they both suck.  Each company 'lost' an expensive integrated amplifier during shipment ... somehow. However, to  Fedex's credit they are  quicker to process claims. UPS customer service is the WORST to dea... 
Japanese Luxman Integrated Amps
my Japanese 505 - flawless, sold it within 1 day, (multiple offers) to upgrade to the 550. I believe my converter failed with the 550 after about a year but not sure   but the unit wouldn’t turn on.  I sent it to George Meyer in LA for repair.  Th... 
Integrated amplifier for Dynaudio Heritage Special
Just looking for some amp suggestions. Thanks everyone. I did see the TMR Octave. almost 1/2 price vs new. Not sure what UPS is going to do for reimbursement.  
Japanese Luxman Integrated Amps
I’ve bought 2 from Japan: 505, 550. buy a quality converter. I sold the 505 within a day of posting. Luxman America will not service Japanese products. George Meyer in LA, California will though. a new 550 axII cost $6500 + tax compared to ~$35-...
