Luxman PD-151 Turntable

By | August 22nd, 2019|Categories: AV Hub|

Over the past 28 years, Japanese high-end manufacturer Luxman has released only four turntables. It has now released its fifth—a belt-drive model, the Luxman PD-151. [Pictured above and below, click images to enlarge.]

The Luxman PD-151 has an under-slung, suspended structure, with components mounted on the underneath of the top panel chassis, which the company claims eliminates the influence of vibrations from the supporting surface. The 10mm thick, machined aluminium top panel provides a rigid base for the moving parts and the heavyweight 4.0kg platter that rotates on a high-precision stainless steel centre spindle, a PEEK thrust bearing and a brass radial bearing.… Read the full article

Alma Music, Wilson, Luxman, MSB, Innuos | T.H.E. Show 2019

By | June 27th, 2019|Categories: Part-Time Audiofile|Tags: , , , , , , , , , |

Alex Siufy of Alma Music and Audio in San Diego had a very strong presence at T.H.E. Show 2019 with multiple exhibit rooms. I previously mentioned how wonderful the latest generation of Wilson Audio loudspeakers sounded in Long Beach, and two of the three pairs from Utah were in Alex’s rooms. When I visited Alex at his store last fall and covered the Dan D’Agostino Relentless debut and the YG Acoustics Sonja XV loudspeakers, I barely noticed any Wilson Audio product on the sales floor–probably because I was so entranced by the sound in Alma Audio’s “big room.” Perhaps Alex has come to the same conclusion I have about the “new” Wilson Audio sound, a sound that’s more human and warm and embraceable– for me, anyways.… Read the full article

Luxman, Ascendo and Isotek | High End 2019

High-End 2019 show coverage brought to you by The LSA Group

I didn’t expect Luxman to be part of such a big exhibit room at High End 2019. Perhaps that’s because I’ve been using the superb Luxman LX-380 integrated amplifier in my reference system for the last few months and I equate its performance with intimacy, ease and midrange immediacy that can only be produced by relatively low-powered tube amplification. The big Ascendo loudspeakers in the room had a slightly different idea.… Read the full article

AXPONA 2019 Show Coverage brought to you by Core Power Technologies

I’ve had Luxman on my mind lately. Not just because I’ve been using the Luxman LX-380 integrated amplifier in my main system for the last couple of months and I’m quite smitten–that review should appear in the Summer issue of The Occasional. Not because I’m really lusting after those newer turntables from Luxman such as the PD-171A ($6995) and the PD-151 ($3895), which were featured in the Luxman and Triangle room at AXPONA 2019.… Read the full article

New, Compact, and Classic from Luxman: NeoClassico SQ-N150 Integrated Amplifier and D-N150 CD Player

By | April 14th, 2019|Categories: Stereophile|

If you’re after an elegant classic look and a compact form factor, you’d be hard-pressed to do much better than the Luxman NeoClassic series, including the SQ-N150 integrated amplifier ($2795) and the D-N150 CD player ($2595). Both are new, and both are now shipping.

The SQ-N150 utilizes four EL84 tubes and 2 ECC83 tubes, all from JJ Electronics. It’s a 10W push-pull design with three line inputs, plus an input into a MM/MC phono stage. It has a headphone output, and it utilizes a standard Luxman remote control, either the one included with the D-N150 CD player or the optional RA-25.… Read the full article

Suncoast Audio had another fantastic-sounding room nearby on the seventh floor and Peter Mackay was on hand playing some righteous digital through the A3s.  The Magico A3s ($12K) have been an unqualified success for the company and it’s easy to see why.  They have the classic Magico sound with deep and tight bass and a nice open sound for the mids and highs.  They also are solid being constructed of machines 6061 aircraft aluminum cabinet similar to the firm’s far more expensive offerings.  … Read the full article
