Eight Tubes, Four Step-Up Transformers, Tone Controls, Timeless Performance, Classic Looks: Luxman CL-38u Tube Preamplifier a Match Made In Analog Heaven for Vinyl LPs

A luscious glass of Cabernet, buttery soft slippers, the partnering Luxman D-38u tube CD player: A few of life's luxuries worthy of pairing with CL-38u, a tube preamplifier with eight tubes aligned in classic SRPP configuration throughout all gain stages. A world-class MM phonostage featuring four step-up transformers, plus tone controls, a defeat switch, and ability to jive with even the most onerous amplifier loads complement smashing-good retro looks and quiet, accurate tube-driven sonics that remain as timeless as CL-38u's wooden cabinet. This Japanese-made preamplifier is the personification of musical luxury. Experience it for yourself with our worry-free Satisfaction Guarantee, but be aware your records won't want to be without it again.

Every Detail Considered In Service of Sublime Performance
CL-38u employs 3x ECC83 and 5x ECC82 tubes in classic SRPP (Shunt Regulated Push-Pull) configuration throughout all gain stages for extremely low-output impedance, achieving strong driveability to cope with the most awkward amplifier loads. The use of four moving-coil step-up transformers in the phonostage further enables quiet and accurate reproduction of music recorded on your vinyl LPs.
