Great post greff, it almost makes me nostalgic of my electro-dynamic days. I am pretty sure I would have got myself a p1u (or even a p1 which could be found used from the dealer at about 700usd at the time!) if it wasn't for my going to the stax route...

I also found it very organic and natural, a perfect complement to keep the hd800 under control. Somehow, I imagine a bit dark tonal balance with the hd650 but never tried though.

Yes, a tad dark, very mellow and warm.  I must favor that kind of sound.  I have had the HD800 a couple of times.  I imagine that the P-1u/HD800 combination would be stellar if you wanted dynamic headphones.  HD600 is wonderful with the Luxman.

Does it worth to use XLR input of P-1u if I am planning to use unbalanced output of my source? In this case I am going to make RCA -> XLR custom interconnect cable.

No, just use the SE input. The amp itself isn't balanced internally and the balanced input is converted.

Thank you very much!

has anyone tried k1000 with Luxman P1
k1000 should sound better than P1u

could P1 be one of the best amp for k1000 as well?

I have just bought a Luxman P1-u off eBay for $2,000, and am keenly awaiting delivery.

 

I use a Luxman DA-200 just now with my Sennheiser HD800's and that pairing is wonderful.  With the P1-u, I will feed that from my Dell Laptop and Chord QuteHD (with Squeez Upgrade Power Supply).  Based on the Luxman/Sennheiser combo I have now, I must say that that pairing is stunning.  Am really looking forward to losing myself in the Chord/P1-u/HD800 system.

 

Thanks to all who provided such worthy, detailed and eloquent reviews.

I just got a P1u myself-and must say the pairing with the HD800 is stunning! The tonality/timbre and textures are incredible with the Senns. My only gripe is it lacks some transparency compared to other amps I've owned-but that is offset by the rich, organic sound it provides in spades to the HD800. I'd imagine there are a number of headphones that it wouldn't pair well with-but it's ridiculous with the Senn.

I'm auditioning P1U right now and I have to say that I'm not impressed by the sound of $3K headphone amp.

The soundstage is narrow, not as wide as some other members stated , the instrument separation and transparency are not at hi-fi level . sometimes I could hear the  violin and the cello fighting and smearing each other

Even  my M2Tech Vaughan builtin amp reveals  much more details  than Luxman P1U . The only one thing the Luxman does better is  the bass which , I have to admit, is very good defined and articulated.

Having said that, I expected much more from Luxman P1U.

 

But again it's all human perception.

It sounds better now. this amp really needs some "break-in" before it starts singing. I usually do not believe in any break-in theory ...but my experience talks otherwise.

Indeed , very good amp. Better than everything I've tried so far ( I like it more than my friend's W22 and GS-X mk2)
