Luxman PD-264 Direct Drive turntable

$650.00Price

The beautiful and elegant Luxman PD-264 direct-drive turntable is delightfully different, in the way Luxman gear often is and would make a wonderful first ‘proper’ turntable.

 

The Luxman PD-264 comes with a decent, low-mass tonearm, direct-drive motor and balanced platter, in a slimline chassis. There’s a hint of wood trim and the deck has a cool vintage look. The platter is heavy, which is a good thing. With much of the platter weight distributed around the edge, excellent wow & flutter characteristics and stable rotation are the results.

 

The tonearm is a straight design to increase stiffness and reduce resonance, something which tends to be found on tonearms designed for high-compliance type cartridges. The root section of the tonearm is of double-pipe structure, to further reduce resonance. A knife-edge bearing is employed and the head-shell is integrated into the tonearm, further suppressing resonance.

 

Speed control is via a toggle switch and a strobe is provided, for trimming the speed to precisely 33.3 or 45 RPM.  A key feature of the PD-264 is the automatic end of disc arm lift function. When disc playback finishes, the tonearm automatically lifts and the platter comes to a stop. This function helps prevent unnecessary stylus wear.

 

The strobe on this deck is provided by LEDs which enable a clear strobe indication.

 

This turntable has been recently serviced and is ready to spin for you. It also comes with a new stylus and is fully setup in all repects.

 

Also comes with a funky cover for the lid to keep it safe and clean :)
