    the Luxman IS a great phono stage and i am enjoy it a lot when i visit the local Luxman dealer and a few friends that bought it after me.
    it was a little less exciting and dynamic at my place (due to a less fitting with my tubes pre amp) so i turn it back and got the PASS instead.
    the xp25 have everything i wanted! and add some. but - the Luxman is a real eyeopener and its still one of my fav' phono stage around now days (under 10K of course) when paring with a proper electronics.




    hope that helps a bit.

    BTW - what extensively modifications you did to your ML spire?

    Hi Aviad,

    Many thanks for the response; and for your impression of the EQ-500, and of course the XP25 which a good friend owns and enjoys, it is quite a piece! Btw, he owns Avalon Eidolon Diamond also.. The Luxman is one stage i'm interested to hear, perhaps one day..!

    The ML's had quite a workover; new external crossovers based on Clarity Cap MR's, completely rewired, bass cabinet clad in granite and ceasarstone, Finite Elemente Cerabase feet, sealed bass enclosure etc. A detailed write up is on the MLO site here: http://www.martinloganowners.com/for...mp-Electronics
