Luxman’s PD-171

Luxman’s first turntable in 28 years offers classic looks and timeless performance.

The Luxman PD-171 is the powerful heart of any analog playback system. Its high output power supply, coupled to the 32 bit processor for speed control offers impressive dynamics and resolution. 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 PD-171’s statically-balanced custom Luxman 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 embodies Luxman’s long-standing philosophy: to utilize the most advanced technology through a conventional medium for unrivaled audio performance. The PD-171 reproduces any powerful musical achievement captured onto vinyl with the airiness and warmth that demanding analog enthusiasts have come to expect.
