Sorry about that, not sure I want to make a pdf and publish here, even though it's good publicity in the end...

For now, you can have a look to Fujya Avic's blog: http://www.fujiya-avic.jp/blog/?p=7428

The amp will be at their headphone festival this week end, but I expect mile long lines to hear it so I will probably leave it to someone to comment on the sound wink.gif. Also, the fact I no long have headphones to plug into it makes it even more difficult for me to give any kind of impressions... But it looks pretty nice so I thought I should share the news wink.gif

Honestly, I'm not that impressed with the innards... Quite a lot more than the GS-X but not the build quality is by no way on the same par. Anyway, I'm always a big fan of Luxman's stuff and looking forward to hearing the impressions smily_headphones1.gif

Lots of wires and pretty extreme amount of guts!

Seems nice but Luxman want's to keep in in Japan. I wonder why...

 

I don't like dual 3 pins, what is wrong with one 4 pin? I like this: "Another characteristic is that the volume control on the electronic circuit LECUA (Luxman Electric Controlled Ultimate Attenuator). Avoid the situation of the traditional volume control on the left and right volume partial tone and sound quality deterioration." I don't like the messy internals.

Is P-700u really P-1u's successor or just older brother?

 

P. S. Inside it looks like "too much amp" for the money.very_evil_smiley.gif

Looking inside that thing you have got to wonder what they were thinking...
