Dave says: "Very ingenious and high quality Japanese (and actually made in Japan!) belt drive turntable with speed control and a host of other features. Luxman is back in the analog world, and with a vengeance. It's not cheap, but no component of this quality rarely is. The sound is said to be very dynamic and transparent. The only caveat is the tonearm, which is said to be one of the cheaper (but still high quality) Japanese-made Jelco brand tonearms. Nevertheless, a turntable I could easily live with for many years. Build quality is head and shoulders over many European and American brands as well. Overall, you can't go wrong with the Luxman PD-171!"
