Luxman PD 272


The Luxman PD272 is a two-speed, manual turntable using a DC servo motor direct-drive system.

Slots are completely removed to eliminate unevenness of rotation caused by electromagnetics, and further provided is a turntable platter of high inertia with which the large mass of the platter weight is distributed around the outer contour.

For the tonearm, a straight type is adopted to eliminate resonance caused by lack of solidity which tends to be found on the tonearm exclusively designed for high-compliance type cartridges.

Platter: 30cm aluminium die-cast 1.8kg

Wow and flutter: no more than 0.03% WRMS

Tonearm: straight arm of static balance type
