LUXMAN L509X VS M700/C700U


HELLO,
I have a Luxman m700u AMP and  with its DAC Luxman DA-06. I have been using my Oppo HA-1 preamp with this equipment.
I have triangle signature delta speakers.

my next step is to either sell M700u and buy L509x or get C700u to complete the paring with M700.
Please comment with experience.

What do you guys think of 509x 
it has the c900 pre amp 

also does 509x also has the first few watts as class A like M700u 

Cl38uc did it soften the sound ? Did u compare that with c700u 
Thank you Erik 
I also have an eastern electric dac but it had some crackling sound in tweeter so I stopped using them 
will taking out Oppo and introducing c700 soften things up or other option is to get tube preamp
My Dac da 06 is arriving next week I can’t wait to see and hear with them 
word out there says that this Dac makes things less bright 
Wow these are excellent conversations 
I actually had heard b&w 804 before the deltas and thetas
Deltas made me crave to go back to hear more music cuz the definition in the music it played 
I heard them with Sqn 150 and then I compared them with M700u 
i
also wanted to see if you all had any comments on 509 vs seperates

Triangles are brand new I will love to live with them for few years 

how was was the base in the Luxman tubes combo?
So this above review calls 509x better than separates 
do u agree? 
And I wonder no one mentioned class A 590 
by the way room is 15x22
Don’t go stay builder 3 
the Dac is coming next week I will update the forum 

What do guys think about cl 38uc and combine it with m700u with triangle speakers ? Vs c700u

does anyone know if Luxman will be replacing this 700 combo soon 

@builder3  I think erik is sharing his thoughts and experiences 
I feel our personal experiences and witnessing some combo in action is more valuable than these big shot reviews 
erik what I understand that the first few watts is what it counts and 590 has enough watts 

I am calling my guy tomorrow to listen to 509 and cl 38uc preamp
unfortunatlwy they don’t have c700u for me to audition 
I just spoke to my dealer in upstate NY 
He Currently does not have the cl 38 uc but says it’s his all time favorite 
I will audition the 509x soon 
I have a question why are triangles labeled as speakers do well with tubes 
Do u think people who have short listening session will have issues with tubes to warm up etc 
i so far like the sound of triangles they are very clean sounding 
i tested bw 804 and these brought me smiles and made me curious during the songs 
Guys I auditioned the cl 38uc 
and it sounds sweet with the amp  m700u
@ei001 
 I bought the CL -38uc. its very nice. 
DAC is not here yet. it will come tomorrow 
Currently I am running Triangle signature delta with M700u , CL 38uc, source is mac via Oppo HA-1 dac. 
I don't have power conditioner yet but I do have ifi plugged in my outlet. 
I am running Qobuz and tidal via audirvana. 
currently I have Anticables 3.0
Any suggestions?

Well I enjoyed that but M700u was still very bright for my triangles so I now paired with mq88uc and now planning to by amp with 2 mq88uc cl 38uc preamp and analysis plus speaker cables silver apex 
sound sweet non fatiguing 
I am also planning to pair harbeths 30.2 with m700u let’s see
