PD-151. Preserving the fragile beauty of analog music reproduction.

Audiophiles love the warmth, organic texture and uncanny beauty of analog music reproduction.But that beauty is notoriously fragile. Even slight variations in platter speed can blur the musical pitch, placing the sound behind an unnatural veil. And when music lovers turn up the volume, the phono cartridge can pick up even subtle chassis vibration and resonance – distortions the cartridge cannot distinguish from the desired tracking of the record groove. At LUXMAN, we understand. And we built that understanding into the PD-151 analog player, a more accessible alternative to our highly regarded PD-171A / AL. From the 10 mm thick aluminum top plate to the high-torque motor, the ultra-wide drive belt and the 4.0 kg platter, every aspect of the PD-151 pursues just one purpose. To do full justice to the ineffable beauty of analog sound.

Cartridge Description

First time in 40 years since the launch of LMC-1 in 1981 and LMC-2 in 1982

2. Natural and extensive unified Luxman sound from the input to the output

3. The semi-open body structure helps reduce resonance and the effects of reflected sound

4. Thorough pursuit of ideal sound quality by repeating trial production considering materials and structure of cantilever, stylus, chassis

The SHIBATA needle has less audible noise while delivering full range vinyl reading

The aluminum cantilever has a neutral tone that goes well with the SHIBATA needle

Moving coil (MC) type, reducing the weight of the armature Reduces cross-channel sensitivity with directly wound cross mounted coils, to which the L/R power generation coils are wound symmetrically

The UEW coil wire has a radius of 30μm, the thinnest in the range, and is resistant

Using a single point piano wire (Φ0.08mm) support method for accurate vibrationto breakage while ensuring coil winding direction

Circuit structure with minimal loop area reduces external noise

A stylus unit is regarded as acoustically equivalent to a microphone, so resonance and reflected sound

from around the device should be thoroughly suppressed
Outer walls that protect the stylus and cantilever ensure practicality are placed on both sides

Structural chassis with inverted oval curves to reduce resonance and reflections
A carefully pared down body structure with minimal outer wall weight as a resonance countermeasure
