Luxman D-06 SACD Player Upgrade
Upgrade your purchase with these options:
Almost any Hi-Fi component can be upgraded to higher performance using our techniques and components. The two things go together – the know-how and the right component. Over the last 30 years, we have developed our knowledge of where the biggest problems lie and how to overcome them to unleash better performance from a given piece of equipment.
Released back in 2010, the Luxman D-06 is digital music player. The standout feature being Luxman’s own proprietary Drive Mechanism – LxDTM.
The D-06 is an SACD/CD player incorporating innovative audio and digital technologies (that would later be adopted in the flagship D-08 model). The player’s digital circuits incorporate a Burr-Brown PCM1792A D/A converter, supporting not only CD but also SACD playback. The analogue output stage features audiophile-grade components in a fully balanced configuration with a regulated, high-inertia power supply. So, ripe for an upgrade then!
Our upgrades build on the strengths of the player. Everything you love about the sound remains – it just gets so much better.
23 component upgrades/changes are made across the power supply, DAC module, analogue output section and system control PCB. The biggest upgrade being the additional of the large Kimber Kap capacitors which give a smooth and detailed sound. The player is completely disassembled to gain access to key areas of upgrade. The LxDTM transport mechanism is also checked to ensure smooth running.
To clean up the power supply, Kimber TCX was used from the IEC socket to the psu board. A Silencer mains filter is fitted as standard, together with a couple of SuperFuses. Further conditioning can be added by the inclusion of a ClarityMains™ and Mains Zapperator™ module
If you don't have exactly the same model as listed above, but a very similar unit, then it's highly likely that the same or similar upgrades will apply. But we can't guarantee that until we have the unit here for inspection. Get in touch and let us know what you have.
Equipment upgrades are proving hugely popular. During peak times there may be a wait of several weeks before we can carry out the upgrade. So before we get your equipment here, it must be booked in so we can ensure a speedy turnaround of the upgrade. Once you have placed your order, we will contact you to arrange a suitable week and getting the equipment here.
For those of you who are local enough or if you fancy a trip to the lakes, you can drop off your equipment personally and then collect it when it’s complete or we can ship it back to you.
We can arrange a courier collection of your equipment for an additional cost. We currently use UPS.
To make things easier, we can offer several collection options.
1. We can arrange a specific day for the courier to call and collect your equipment. Someone will need to be available all day at the collection address as we’re unable to arrange a time slot for collections.
2. Dropping off at a UPS Access Point. UPS use a network of local shops to deliver and collect parcels from and to. We can either post you a collection label or email you the label (you will need to print the label at home/work). Securely box up your equipment, affix the collection label to the outside of the box and take it to your preferred Access Point where you will be issued a receipt. UPS Access Points can be found here (link opens in a new window), simply enter you postcode to find your nearest one.
Please note this is just an upgrade modification, it does not include the Luxman SACD player.
