Notes The Luxman PD-277 is a two-speed, automatic direct-drive turntable using a brushless and slotless DC servo motor direct drive system.

For the tonearm, a straight type is adopted to eliminate resonance caused by a lack of solidity which tends to be found in tonearms exclusively designed for high-compliance type cartridges.

The most salient feature of the PD-277 is the automatic function; unlike conventional automatic players, pure electronic tonearm operation with an exclusive motor for the tonearm provides quite smooth operation of the tonearm without sacrificing it's inherent quality.
