Need opinions Luxman CL35 Mk III

This is another piece i have been holding forever. It is near perfect and I have seen them at drastically inflated prices in various places. Are these puppies a sentimental favorite?
Have you listened to it with a good set of tubes? Unless you listen to headbanger rock it is probably the sweetest preamp I have ever heard. You have A piece of gold and do not know it. The trick is to use the phono section of a vintage preamp like a CJ PV-5. You will then know why the price is up, people are discovering it. Hope this helps.
