There is a reason that Stereophile calls this their integrated reference. Sounds simply wonderful. I purchase a year and a half ago. When I purchased it , it had the light dings in the back that the pictures show. Also the slight ding on the remote. From a normal view very hard to see the dings. Overall the piece is an 8 out 10. I do not have the box but will ship in the box that I received it in. Also has built in phono amp which is superb. It is the uX version.Much better than the 'u' version. Some reviewers indicate this is the best of the recent Luxman Amplifiers. Price reflexs the dings and includes shipping.
