Turntables

PD-171AL

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-171-AL is supplied without the tone arm, with the option of customising the turntable so you can enjoy the playback of vinyl to your exact tastes.
