Luxman R 1040

This is the beautiful LUXMAN R-1040 (1978) stereo receiver.

Luxman elegance, very good looking, genuine wood enclosure – Audiophile device.

LUXMAN it’s well known among audiophiles, sometimes referred to as “Japanese McIntosh”.

Very well built and in terms of design, with a  “futuristic” looking… it is one of the more attractive receivers from that era, minimalist faceplate and a yellow backlit display, adds a certain level of charm.

The 40W in 8 ohm that it offers are satisfying. Superb phono stage is great and the FM/AM reception is strong even without an outdoor antenna.

Vintage Luxman components are much sought after for their exceptional build quality and exquisitely balanced sound. The company also produced a design language that was more distinct than that of many of its competitors.

The sound of the R1040 is clean and detailed with a hint of warmth, supremely musical.
