Luxman PD-171 A/AL
La nouvelle platine Luxman
Platine vinyle manuelle à entrainement par courroie et moteur alternatif synchrone équipé d'un processeur 32 bits, aidé par une Led stroboscopique pour un contrôle parfaitement précis de la vitesse de rotation, avec couvercle, vendue avec bras 9" Luxman dérivé Jelco, câble modulation et cordon secteur amovible. La version PD171-AL est disponible sans bras et elle peut être commandée avec l'embase du bras choisi. Dimensions 492 (L) x 140 (195)(H) x 407 (P) (mm) 23,8kg.
Since the highly admired introduction of the PD-171 into the market in 2011, Luxman turntables have been renowned to deliver a sense of atmosphere that can only be achieved through the medium of vinyl, that every vinyl enthusiast strives to achieve. The PD-171A now has a highly rigid main chassis and heavy base ensuring stable rotation. Additional improvements to the motor, drive circuit and bearing section have also been made. The PD-171A is supplied with a 9" tonearm derived from Jelco. If you want to select and mount your preferred tonearm you may consider purchasing the PD-171 AL model with your tonearm specific armbase.
Introduction of newly developed high-torque AC Motor
Motor drive uses similar circuit structure to high power amps
High-precision clock controlled generator circuit with 32-bit microphone embedded.
Reflective view type LED stroboscobe useful for adjustments to speed
Belt drive aluminium machining heavy turntable (5.0kg) utilising high inertia moment (approx 0.7t.2)
Hanging vibration-damping structure with 15mm thick machined aluminium plate
High-rigidity 16mm spindle with ball bearing for stable rotation
Wear-resistant and load-bearing polyether ketone (PEEK) material used in the bearing section
Floating mounted power transformer and AC motor
Hybrid vibration-damping structure with wood and metal
Large-sized insulator with height adjustment function directly secured to aluminium chassis.
Traditional wood-paneled design
AC inlet on rear panel for easy replacement of power cable
Detachable high-intensity LED stylus light
Cam support for 4mm acrylic dust cover (opens and closes via light)
The LED light on the LHS of the platter is detachable. No more fumbling in the dark trying to locate track # 2. The lamp is a soft orange and is very effective at showing where the tracks are located.
Right in front of the platter is the stroboscope window - speed adjustment is on the RHS of the stroboscope window. When you look into the window, you are actually looking at a mirror, which shows you the numbers 33 or 45 printed underneath the platter. on the outer diameter. When the speed is correct the numbers are static. Simple but extremely effective.
Detachable 4mm acrylic dust cover is on hinges, but for best sound quality, we recommend removing the dust cover completely during playback.
The aluminum top plate is 15mm thick (almost 5/8″). Both the tonearm cable & AC power cord are detachable, allowing an easy path to upgrade.
Forming the vital part of an analogue playback system the PD-171 employs a high output oscillator circuitry coupled to a high precision, high torque synchronous AC motor that drives a high inertia platter via a synthetic belt for stable rotation.
The precision machined spindle rests on a Teflon bearing of large diameter to ensure frictionless rotation. The solid aluminum platter is recessed into the top plate to lower the center of gravity. Handles are provided to remove the platter, if it ever needs to be shipped.
The detachable headshell, allows one to swap cartridges and simply dial in the new tracking weight. Stereo & Mono cartridges of the same model / manufacturer can of course be swapped out in a minute or two. An optional heavier counterweight is available for use with the Ortofon SPU cartridge / headshell.
High quality, oxygen free Luxman phono DIN to RCA cable, is supplied with a strain relief under the plinth. It is however detachable, in case you prefer to use another brand of phono cable.
