Luxman PD 291

This turntable surprised me, I knew it was good, but it is really very good.

Luxman PD-291 or PX-100, they are identical, and differ only in appearance and their value at the time was around 440 USD.

Quartz lock, fully automatic with optically monitored mechanism and repeat function.

The PD-291 had, according to Australian Hi-Fi magazine, the lowest rumble measured on any turntable at the time, the mid-1980s.

The automatic functions run quietly and smoothly. A pleasure to use and to listen to.

If you find one in good condition, buy it, you won’t regret it!

And it looks good too...
