Summary: This review is based in part on a post from June of 2009, written soon after I received my Luxman P-200 Headphone Amplifier from TTVJ. It's been now almost two years, and the P-200 continues to amaze me, steadily feeding a parade of headphones that have passed through my arsenal.
Summary: The Luxman P-200 is one of the best headphone amp around the world, Its high-power output circuit consists of pure class A with 2 watts/8 ohms achieved by the parallel push-pull configured power transistor is embedded in the compact chassis of as small as B4 size.
Pros: very good match for low impedance japanese headphone or even HD800
Cons: more power is needed if driving magnetic planar headphone

Pros: Clarity, treble quantity
Cons: Lack of low bass power, inadequate for driving high-impedance/inefficient headphones
Summary: I was looking for a new amp for HD800 - I wanted something more than my Lyr could provide.
I experienced M1, Canor Audio TP 10, Luxman P-200 (I also heard SPL Auditor and Phonitor last year and had Schiit Lyr). What I can say?
Pros: Natural sound, which fits perfect for HD800; solid and simply design; two inputs.
Cons: A bit too expensive; I wish it will be slightly more powerful (will have more reserve volume).
