    Hello everyone!
    As its a given that we are all audiophiles here, I'll keep it a tad precise.
    My name is Faraz, and I'm a huge fan of Luxman. Previously, my system comprised of the following...

    Luxman C12 PreAmp
    Marantz Model 1205 (which I use as a poweramp)
    Demon 1530G CD player
    Small Advent monitors
    And Mission 700s

    The Advents match beautifully with my system, so much that I could not find any faults on my jazz and tabla albums.

    As I always wanted to shift to a Luxman poweramp, I came across a 5L15, which I grabbed the instant I laid eyes on it.

    Now it seems that my beautiful balanced system is not so balanced anymore. Shifting to Mission 700s made the sound dramatically better, but there's still something missing.

    So here I am, searching for some expert help from you guys.....

    I'm not very familiar with Luxman, I did own one of their receivers which was very clean sounding with a bit of emphasis on the high end. Marantz is typically a warm sounding unit and may be what you liked about your prior set up. You could try a different power amp to see. What is it about the Luxman together you don't like?

    Hi lux. Gotta love the small Advents. My uncle has a pair with the orange tweeters and whenever I would house sit I'd spend hours listening to them. They are a set em and forget em type of speaker which is nice.

    The Advente sound very sweet with the marantz, but with the Lux, a certain hum is added to the overall sound, which is not very pleasing to the ears. However, with the Mission speakers, the Lux setup produces excellent sound. Very smooth and sweet.

    I suppose the fix is use the Mission then. Maybe the Lux revealed a weakness in the Advent.
