Luxman R-3055 Vintage AM/FM Receiver

$599

The Luxman R-3055 is a great way to experience the goodness of Luxman audio electronics without spending a ton.

Great looking, especially at night, and capable of 55W per side.

Huge tuning meter, wood grain cabinet, and brushed silver faceplate makes this look more expensive than it is.

The Acculock branding is more than just a marketing phrase too. When you get closer to maxing the 5-step signal meter for best reception on your favorite station, the turning knob actually changes resistance to help you lock it in just right! Very neat and functional feature for such a vintage item.

Best of all it has the ability to connect a vintage turntable for both MM (Moving-Magnet) and MC (Moving-Coil) phono cartridges.

Just add speakers and you have yourself a great system.

The SkyFi Testing Process for Receivers:
We start with a visual inspection of all internal components to make sure there are no signs of stress or aging. Capacitors are checked for telltale sings of bulging or leaking, resistors are checked for signs of overheating or cracking, and transistors are checked for signs of stress or damage.

We then power up the unit carefully and run a simple 1k sine wave while monitoring the output on an oscilloscope for signs of distortion or noise. Finally, we run the receiver to its full rated power into the appropriate resistive load provided by our Sencore amplifier tester. If there is an issue, it will usually be noticeable at this point. If everything reads clean, we will often test for THD (Total Harmonic Distortion) measured by our Keithley distortion meter, and compare it against the original manufacturers specifications. The receiver then remains powered on to "burn in" on our test bench for a few hours to make sure there are no heat related issues. If there are balanced inputs available they will be also be tested.

Then the tuner is thoroughly tested in our lab utilizing our professional Sencore SG80 FM Generator, which allows us to generate a reference FM signal of any frequency and amplitude, and then measure the resulting tuner output on our Sencore PR81 or oscilloscope.

Final testing involves pushing actual music thorough the receiver. We've learned over time that some issues are only noticeable to a trained ear while listening to familiar source material. Our test bench has reference vintage KEF speakers that we're very familiar with which quickly reveal any discrepancies. Some receivers will then move into our listening room where they are tested with our in-house reference speakers of choice.
