What is stereo?

There are now two system of high fidelity, monophonic (monaural) and stereophonic. Monophonic is a system that starts from one microphone and is fed through a single high fidelity set. Stereophonic is a double system. Two separate microphones are placed at different sides of the orchestra and two different systems are used to keep the two signals or channels separated. Two separate speakers are used, placed on different sides of you room. Stereo is much like 3-D photography, two slightly different sound reach your ears giving you a new dimension in sound.

Direct drive is recognized as the ideal method of rotating records for stable playback with minimal wow and flutter. It eliminates many defects to which belt and rim derive turtables are prone. The modern direct drive system employed in the PD282 is controlled by an electronic circuit which ensures wow and flutter of less than 0,03% (WRMS) and signal to noise ratio of better than 60 dB.

This puts Luxman amongst the highest class turntables available. As a result of the direct drive principle employed the incorporated speed variation allows accuracy of speed setting without affecting the ultimate performance possible.

The arm provived has extremely low bearing friction and comes with an idealcombination of simplicity and professional performance. Such sophisticated devices as lateral balance, antiskating control, easy to read stylus pressure gauge, oil damp cueing are amongst the features provided.

As well all units carrying the Lux name finish is immaculate. The meticulous care paid to selection of material and construction of cabinet makes the PD282 resistant to external disturbance and feedback.

The detailed precision in construction and appearance will ensure that your acoustic sensitivities and your aesthetic sensibilities will both be enhanced.
