I absolutely love the looks of the 595. Whether it’s Luxman or McIntosh, I usually turn off the meters for the majority of my listening. McIntosh gear is great but Luxman is typically my preferred sound especially since McIntosh changed the sound of the newer gear. Luxman is a perfect match with Magico.
Remember, it’s all about balance. The speaker and amp synergy is critical. Whoever thinks all amps sound the same is wrong.
Luxman, especially the new/current gear is absolutely superb. You are lucky to have such a varied selection of gear. Enjoy the music in great health. Move the MA352 and don’t look back.
Hmmm, I think the bottom black piece is metal. It’s solid and the whole unit is especially well made.
