  • Summary: If you bought an headphone amp like you might buy a regular speaker amp, the P-1u is exactly what you'd get. Typically for Luxman, the build quality is excellent and beautiful to behold.  While I didn't test the P-1u, nor its predecessor, the P-1, with anything exotic, every pair of headphones I've plugged in to it didn't give me pause at all to think about the capabilities of the amp in the slightest.
  • Pros: Excellent sound, drives almost everything with authority, gorgeous to look at, balanced inputs.
  • Cons: Very expensive and not so great value compared to balanced amps that are available. Surprising choice of the cheap alps RK27 volume attenuator.

  • Summary: LUXMAN P-1u REVIEW:   I just finished spending 2 weeks with the Luxman P-1u headphone amplifier from Todd @ TTVJ and this amp was a pleasure to listen to.  I just shipped it back two days ago, but if I didn't already have an Eddie Current ZDT amp then I would have been sorely tempted to try to buy the Luxman which ranks among the best dynamic headphone amps that I have tried.  Thanks for the opportunity Todd!
  • Pros: Sounds marvelous, fast warm up, runs cool, multiple input and outputs, precise volume pot for IEM, big power
  • Cons: Heavy, not the best K1000 amp but then what is?

  • Pros: Mid-range qualities (especially with HD800)
  • Cons: Slow impulse response, high price
