Gorgeous Inside and Out—But it’s the Sound that Will Stun You! 

Luxman's D-05 has two Digital Inputs!

Brand new for 2010, the Luxman D-05 CD/SACD player could be the last audio disc player you ever need. Built to staggering specifications, this is a pure music lover’s CD player through and through. Inside this massive killer lies the heart of a lover. Check out the new Luxman proprietary transport, fully enclosed in steel to protect the laser mechanism from any EMI/RFI and further isolate it from any vibration.

"The D-05 performed flawlessly...delightful with both CDs and SACDs."
— John Marks, Stereophile

The digital section is based on the newest Burr Brown PCM1792A chipset and a new, lower jitter clock. The analog outputs section gives this player its remarkably smooth, analog-like signature. In addition, the digital inputs (coaxial, optical) on the back are perfect for connecting any other digital source, like a Wadia iTransport, to take advantage of the incredible DAC and analog outputs. Single-ended or fully balanced connections finish this player off. Sonically, the D-05 will leave you luxuriating in the sweet sounds from the pits of your CDs and Super Audio CDs. While this player has remarkable  extension at both frequency extremes, its enjoyment comes from its portrayal of the ever-important mid-range region, where it delivers instrumental and vocal presentations with seductive realism. This is one you need to hear at home to fully appreciate. 100% guaranteed.

"The midband combines warmth and clarity in a very rare marriage. Differentiation is high and textures are fully developed. A true virtue. The upper bands are open, free and utterly bereft of edge or nervousness...Soundstaging is a clear forté. The general perspective is laid-back, the panorama broad and exceptionally deep. Against an utterly calm background the sounds rise well contoured and with well above average body. This avoids artifice in conjunction with the high focus. Music is believably tactile. This is a somewhat subtle but very impressive quality. The machine will play SACD and with its digital inputs can act as standalone DAC but in the review context, the built-in transport proved superior. Build quality is immaculate as it should be in this class."
— Ralph Werner, 6moons.com

Since 1925, Luxman has crafted audio products for the most demanding of listeners. Luxman products are built and designed in Japan; each device carefully tested and evaluated. Luxman designs unique, special and one of a kind. Luxman amplifier designs are usually dual mono. The transformers are made in Japan to Luxman specifications. Luxman even hand selects the color paint used on the resistors to identify value and tolerance based on extensive listening tests. The chassis are carefully tuned to control vibration and resonance, making Luxman products perform like a musical instrument. Finally assembly and testing are carried out in Japan. Luxman's attention to detail is second to none.

Luxman Design Philosophy

Easy On the Ear
A piece of audio equipment should offer excellent performance specifications. Yet, the product that performs the best on paper is not necessarily the best sounding one - because there is no way to relate specifications to the degree of emotion a product evokes in the heart of the listener.

Easy on the Body
Human senses are quick to detect unnaturalness in what we hear. Artificial sound tires us, but rich, natural sound relaxes and frees us from stress and tension, letting us enjoys music at the deepest level. While Luxman places a great importance on numerical analysis of their products, still greater significance is given to actual auditions. In essence, our performance concept is to ensure that a component produces the most natural sound possible when it plays back music.

Easy On the Eye
Luxman builds their products to deliver natural sound that brings spiritual serenity to the listener. In aesthetic terms, Luxman stresses the interplay of light and shadow, giving Luxman products a solid, sculpture-like impression. Open to innovative ideas and free from engineering prejudices; Luxman is committed to designing and building products that satisfy those music lovers who are unwilling to settle for anything less than the best.

Easy On the Soul
Luxman audio components deliver both the emotional impact of the performance as well as the peace of mind of long-term reliability. Every model incorporates proven circuit designs and exhaustive quality evaluations to provide uncompromising durability.
