A Fantastic Luxman PD441 with a Micro Seiki MA 505 MKii Tonearm,
beautiful warm sounding and very rare. The Clamp is not include in the
sale and nor does it have a dustcover but it does have the hinges. The
dustcover can be made for $ 100 extra.
Excerpt of a review on this
fantastic table " The PD444 and 441 have the same direct drive system
for which there were two different iterations of the Tokyo Electric
motor. What's otherwise "magnetic" about these turntables is that the
direct drive motors also incorporate a magnetic-repulsion "load-free
spindle." It's not actually a load-free spindle. It's load-reduced. When
the platter is not on the subplatter, the subplatter sits high against
the upper mechanical constraint of the spindle/motor structure. With the
platter mounted on the subplatter, the full load of the platter's mass
is mitigated by the magnetic repulsion spindle. But it does have a
full-contact main bearing.
The PD441/444 are outstanding turntables
and far better than most of what they competed against during their
1976-1980 production run.
It can sound better than most vaunted belt drive spring-subchassis competitors, including the same-era Linn Sondek.
