Default Luxman M-05 105W/channel class A

I found a Luxman M-05 power amplifier. I have to repair one broken channel. This beast appears to be well built.

How about sound quality of this amplifier ?
Is it in the big leagues ?

Thanks

Legarem

Looks like the Denon Poa-1 amp.. That lux probably weighs more than i can lift Looks like it is built really good.

Lookig at now a day's amps they are all cheap stamps steel and crapy construction with a plastic / THIN alumium face place.

That lux looks really nice..

Uses fan's at low speed to move air. Nothing wrong with that.

As someone who was into building computers, there's a company called Vantec whose "Stealth" line of fans is extremely quiet. The fans come in 60mm, 80mm and 120mm sizes, I think (maybe 40mm as well?) and anyone looking to get quiet, reasonably high CFM fans should look at those. Just stay away from the "Tornado" type - you can guess what they sound like.
