Check out this beautiful Luxman M-4000 power amplifier I’ve just serviced. This classic vintage beast needed a little work, let’s take a look.

Luxman M-4000A Amplifier Repair & Restoration

I recently restored this gorgeous Luxman M-4000A power amplifier and matching C-5000A preamplifier. Let’s start with the beautiful M-4000A.
