ARC and Luxman

I'm considering changing out my amplifers and moving to a Luxman u900. It will be mated with an ARC ref 5se driving a pair of Vandersteen model 5a Carbons using the M5 high pass filters. Wondering if anyone has any experience with either the Luxman and ARC pre or the Luxman and Vandersteens

Not on the Vandersteen speakers, but we have the u900 in the showroom and we've used it extensively with the ARC REF 10. We've even taken that pair to this year's THE Show in California.
On the YGs and the Wilsons, it's a really good combo. The Luxman really is great value for money, with excellent resolution and speed.
