I was doing a bit of digging re: Yamaha AS2000, and to my surprise stumbled upon this new product for spring 2013 ... (also mentioned in you last post) .... looks like a Luxman ...

good accurate audio monitoring and good sound reproduction to all
It certainly does Rick ... would you have any information on pricing ... I imagine it's north of the (increased) £1500 the AS2000 is now going for.
Ooh, I like it. If only it still had the wooden cheeks too...
Not out in the stores yet here in Japan, but I look forward to seeing it.
Observe the signature in its natural habitat.
It does, but they are piano gloss black...

Owning the current AS2000 sacd and amp.......Drool !!!
I fear for my future bank balance..............
So they do make them like they used to. A drop dead gorgeous piece of kit IMO. Would love to hear one...
I wonder how well it would drive a pair of ATC SCM 19s?
Enjoy the music!
Well spotted. I'd prefer the timber look, but that may well be coming. I couldn't find much on the amp. There was more on English sites than Japanese sites...
I heard that the Yamaha is going to be priced around €4500.00 which to me is astonishing.
My expectation is that it might sit around the £2-£2.5K bracket ... given that the 1000 is at £1K, the 2000 is at £1.5K. The average price of the AS2000 has risen from around £1200 back up to £1500 recently maybe because of limited supply or maybe to introduce some logical pricing structure relative to the new model.
I think it looks very nice in piano black ... which is a shame because I have one of these ...
and not one of these
Thanks but no thanks!
I'm going to wait for Clive Sinclair to launch a new amp, personally.

Looks very 70s, classic Yamaha styling, particularly the tall thin switches. Very nice indeed.
