Default Luxman PD-171A Turntable

I am seriously considering this TT. Just wondering if any AA members own one and could share their impressions.

Greg, it is unlikely that you will find much feedback on a Luxman turntable. For the money, chances are there is perhaps more performance to be had going with the usual brands focused on such products, of course with diminishing returns taken into consideration. I’m sure the Luxman is a good turntable and those that do own them with the rest of Luxman gear for obvious “complete system” approach are happy and could not care less if some other turntable sounds a bit better. Much like the McIntosh table, you will find plenty of them with McIntosh owners but probably not one without the rest of the gear.

Luxman was always a DD TT maker. Think they should stick with that. We need a good $7K DD TT.

Thanks Serge and Glenn. I found a few articles on the web. Having seen this TT up-front and personal, it's a beauty.

Until I got a deal on my current TT, I was fairly confident that I'd end up with the Luxman TT. I think it's gorgeous, convenient, and the reviews are strong.
I was considering the armless version of the TT with an Ortofon arm, perhaps.

Thanks Serge,

For some reason, I had not seen the article. The Luxman is a beauty. With the great trade up program at my local dealer, I don’t think I can go wrong.
