Comparing the Luxman L-509Z to the L-509X

Comparing the new Luxman L-509Z to its predecessor, the L-509X, reveals notable differences. We carried the L-509X in our store for over five years and it formed the foundation of numerous Pearl Audio systems. It was a go-to integrated amplifiers for clients who wanted the performance of separates but with fewer components.

The L-509X was a dynamic powerhouse with beautiful separation between instruments and outstanding clarity. However, some clients favored Luxman's Class A integrated amplifiers over the L-509X due to their sweeter and warmer sound that offers extraordinarily natural musical reproduction, especially on acoustic music.

The L-509Z offers significants refinements and upgrades over the L-509X's design and the outcome is the best-of-both-worlds. The new L-509Z is tonally much more akin to Luxman's Class A amplifiers and shares their incredible sweetness and natural sound, yet it simultaneously eclipses the L-509X in dynamics, bass drive, and overall detail.
