"It was an old Gene Ammons LP and O’Hanlon cued it up on the Luxman turntable. The music blossomed into the room with stunning presence and lifelike scale. This was luxurious sound with a beautiful sense of space, natural attacks, and long, lovely decays. " - Stereophile
The Luxman PD-171 turntable is a beautiful foundation for any analog playback system. Its high output electronics offer impressive dynamics and resolution. Utilizing a massive power supply borrowed from one of Luxman's power amplifiers, a high torque synchronous AC motor drives a high inertia platter via a synthetic belt for smooth, seamless playback. The precision-machined spindle rests on a wide Teflon bearing to ensure frictionless rotation. The Luxman PD-171's statically-balanced custom tonearm glides smoothly on ball bearings for stable and reliable sound. The universal headshell allows easy cartridge replacement, and a detachable stylus light unobtrusively enhances visibility in a mood-lit room.
The PD-171 turntable embodies Luxman’s long-standing heritage of utilizing the most advanced technology through a conventional medium for unrivaled audio performance. The Luxman PD-171 turntable reproduces any powerful musical achievement captured onto vinyl with the airiness and warmth that demanding analog enthusiasts have come to expect.
