A pre amplifier or pre-amp is the very hub of a hi-fi system. All your source equipment connects to the pre amplifier. Most common is an active (powered) preamplifier design but there do exist some passive (non powered) designs. Using a separate pre and power amplifier brings about significant audio improvements over an integrated design as it minimises crosstalk and each component benefits from its own dedicated power supply.

The balanced amplification circuit has a 4-module configuration with independant right/left and hot/cold sound signals to surpress unneccessary noise generation. A combination of the evolved traditional ODNF circuit version 4.0 and sturdy power supply unit has achieved a high signal to noise performance sound quality without distortion. The latest version of 'Lecua 1000', Luxman's original fixed resistance switching type attenuator is used for the volume adjustment mechanism that is the major key of the control amplifier. The number of contacts is set to 88 to allow for more precise volume adjustment. the C-900u is elegant, userfriendly with premium operation.

Luxman C-700U (C700U) Pre Amplifier
Luxman C-700U (C700U) Pre Amplifier
Luxman’s new C-700u preamp benefits from the same uncompromising construction and attention to detail as the D-06u. At its heart lies Luxman’s fourth-generation ODNF (Only Distortion Negative Feedback) amp circuit, which restricts feedback to distortion components only, thus greatly enhancing signal-to-noise performance. This is directly coupled to the LECUA 1000 attenuator circuit, trickled down from the flagship C-900u preamp, allowing an extremely fine degree of volume control and left/right balance adjustment whilst maintaining sound quality at the highest level.
