Bottom Line:   
De Luxman lv105 is een prima versterker.
Na het aanzetten volgt geen klikgeluid meer en de werking blijft uit.
De lampen branden wel.
Wat kan het zijn?

Bottom Line:   
i dont agree with any of the other reveiws that i read
conpared to other tube amps the 105 is very nice pc. for the money
i paid 300.00 bucks for mine and running a pair of martin logans with it
and have money to buy what is very high end,but why sounds great at any level
maybe the other guys need new power tubes mine are brand new and makes big difference

Bottom Line:   
I purchased the Lv_105u new about 15 years ago. I would have to agree with a couple of the other reviews. The bass performance is relatively poor, at higher listening levels, the mid range is muddled. On the positive side the sound is soft, and at lower volumes with the bass turned up it sounds great.

Bottom Line:   
This amp just does it. I have had many different amps, Jolida tube, Audio Note,
Sugden, Musical fidelity etc. The sound is smooth with a great soundstage, I have no problems with the sound when i crank it up to higher volumes, it still have good crisp highs, mellow mids and a good bass. The best thing is that you can purchase it for about 250 USD in DK in mint condition. The tubes used is still made and not hard to get (type: 6CG7)

Bottom Line:   
This amp has a smooth sound with comparably good soundstaging and detail. Low bass could be firmer and more powerful.
A lot more detail and soundstage can be found in my current 300B SE amp (8 watts), but the Lux definitely has got more overall punch and drive.

Contrary to what has been stated in a previous review the tubes DO affect the sound. I have A/B tested two diffrenet LV-105u with somewhat worn and really worn stock tubes. Then tried some EI tubes and they all sounded notably different, not surprisingly the newer the tubes the better the sound.

Overall verdict: This amp sounds sweet and relaxed, equally so for all kinds of music. However, really compressed material (typically pop/rock) played at high levels can sound a bit muddled.

Interestingly the original owner of the amp decided to upgrade to a 60´s RCA amp. Yes, we do have some vintage US gear in Sweden, although not too many (except for Dynaco which is quite common).
