Luxicor, 24651 Crestview Court, Farmington Hills, MI 48335-1505, USA.

Japanese mid to high end manufacturer that these days sees little distribution in the west. Bought by International Audio Group in early 2010 but the company has it's roots in a transformer workshop founded by Miura-san in the 1930's but Luxman gained notoriety in the 70's and 80's as it was the only major hi-fi manufacturer that never stopped producing valve based amplifiers.

When it was taken over by Alps in 1979 it inherited the Alpine home hi-fi division and the Alpage brand and this has created a lot of confusion since the product lines of the Alpine factory started appearing with the Luxman brand on it in the 80's, and in some cases there where more than one distributor in each country distributing Luxman branded products, one for the product lines and designs from the old Alpine factory and one for the products from Luxman proper. The Alpine home hi-fi products where not bad at all, their cassette recorders for instance where excellent but the consumer oriented product lines clashed terribly in the marketplace with the almost elitist and perfectionist Luxman brand and confusion reigned. The last Alpine home hi-fi factories in Hong Kong appear to have closed in or around 2000 and the Luxman company is now exclusively an upmarket operation.
