This top-of-the-line Luxman C-300 pre-amplifier (control amplifier) is in beautiful condition, manufactured in 1983 at the peak of the Japanese golden age and just before Alpine took ownership of the company. A very well designed and constructed vintage preamp with dual MM/MC phono stage inputs, interesting tone controls with useful turnover points for bass and treble, plus the usual line level inpus for AUX, TUNER, and Tape Loop. Please review all images, read the description and ask questions, I reply to all inquiries. See my other listings for more vintage audio.

This gorgeous C-300 has been completely overhauled and restored using carefully selected parts to it's original factory specifications:

  • Dual power regulators serviced to factory spec to ~1.0mv accuracy.
  • DC offset for MC and Line outputs were adjusted to factory spec with precision trimmers ~4.0mV.
  • ALL electrolytic capacitors were replaced using select audio grade ELNA SILMIC II, Nichicon, Panasonic and WIMA parts.
  • New sealed protection relay and new Bourns multi-turn precision trimmers.
  • AC line safety caps upgraded with new RIFA parts complying to IEC 60384-14 X1/Y2 safety standards and providing better EMI / RFI suppression and filtering.
  • Cleaned & polished faceplate, knobs, lubricated switches, removed glue and debris.
