Luxman CL38uC Tube Stereo Preamplifier

The Luxman CL38uC is a Tube Stereo Preamplifier with a genuine phono equalizer.  The MC-low and MC-high impedance (gain) inputs each have independent MC transformers.  The selection is through the MC impedance lever switch.  Refined exterior design and newly added balanced inputs make this vacuum tube control amp a new standard for its generation.
