    Default Luxman TP-117

    I just picked up a luxman TP-117 preamp and was wondering if anyone has experience with this unit. Also does anyone know where I can find a owners manual for it. I believe it was a higher end unit in it's day. Thanks.

    Hi Ron, The TP-117 looks to be a different animal. The TP-117 has the T-117 receiver built in it. It was ranked as one of the best tuners around in it's day. It is also actually two preamps. You can control two systems with one preamp. It comes with two remotes. I will try to post a picture. You won't believe all the hook ups this thing has. Both preamps sound great. You got me into these Luxmans and now I have three M-117 amps, two R-117 receivers, one R-115 receiver and the TP-114 and TP-117 preamp. Love these Luxmans. They sound awesome with SDA's.

    If it sounds better than the 114, I'll start looking for one. Right now, I'd settle for a 7.1 pre/pro w/HDMI 1.3a that sounds as good as the Luxman via analog. I miss the M-117 :(.

    If you find one of those 7.1 systems that sound as good as the Luxman let me know. I just picked up a full 7.1 HT set of LSI speakers from another member. Here's a picture of the TP-117. It is on the top. The front has a flip down piece to access most of the knobs. You can see on the rear in picture 2 that there are many inputs for a two system setup.

    How much did you pay for your luxman tp-117? I have a chance to buy two of them both with remotes for $325 was wondering if this was a good deal? Thank you so much for your time.

    Default Luxman, denon poa-6600, alpine 6012ex

    sounds like a good deal. they are pretty versatile multi zone preamps. 2 of them would be sweet.

    I happen to be coinsidering selling mine, along with all of my other stuff. we are moving to a smaller house. Let me know if you want or need the wall keypad for the TP-117, or any of the in-wall remote eyes. I also have many remotes.

    Sadly parting with:
    Luxman TP-117 multi zone preamp (w/ box and manuals)
    Luxman D-105u tube hybrid CD player (remote compatable with TP-117)(w/ box and manuals)
    Luxman K-331w dual cassette deck (remote compatable with TP-117)(w/ box and manuals)
    Luxman M-117 200wx2 channel amp(w/ box and manuals)
    Luxman M-111 25x4 channel amp (good for small zones)(w/ box and manuals)
    (2)Denon POA-6600 monoblock Amps
    (6)Luxman RTP-117 remotes for TP-117(w/ box and manuals)
    (8)Luxman RC-501 remote eyes for TP-117(w/ box and manuals)
    (2)Luxman RC-503 remote eyes for TP-117(w/ box and manuals)
    Luxman in-wall keypad for TP-117
    (2) Alpine 6012EX subwoofers, with ported sub boxes made to specs for home theater. DENON POA-6600s powered these.

    As stated, i am just now starting to talk myself into selling my babies. Let me know if you have any interest.

    Hi, pinkbohman. I know it has been months, but I'm hoping you haven't offloaded all of your Luxman gear. Do you have any of the Tp117 remotes left? Thanks.
