Products - Luxman
 
Product Brand : Luxman
Product Name : LMC-5 Phono Cartridge
Product Genre :
Condition : NEW
Description:

LUXMAN has consistently designed components for vinyl playback such as our PD series analog players and our E/EQ phono equalizer amplifier series. After a development period of 2 years, the LMC-5 is LUXMAN’s first original cartridge in 40 years. For the stylus, in order to read the musical information pressed on the record accurately and reliably, we selected a combination of an aluminum cantilever with high tracing ability and a SHIBATA stylus to pick up a large amount of information with less audible noise. In order to secure the fulcrum of the vibration system, a low distortion structure has been realized by using the one-point “piano wire” support method. The MC type power generation engine uses a cross mounted iron core with the coils for the left and right channels wound symmetrically. Adopting a magnetic structure with a small field area reduces the intrusion of external noise. We have achieved significant size and weight reductions.

From our experiences with closed body designs, the coil and cantilever can act like a microphone, picking up the reflected sound, therefore reducing the enclosure results in less sound coloration. In order to prioritize weight reduction and resonance countermeasures, the housing is crafted down to a minimal design which still firmly supports the power generation engine. The minimized outer chassis has an inverted egg-shaped curve that suppresses unnecessary reflected sound and vibrations. The machined aluminum body is anodized to a deep red, which is LUXMAN’s corporate color, and with the L mark logo laser-etched on the front, it subtly asserts LUXMAN’s identity. Each one is carefully assembled by our team of craftspeople, the best in Japanese cartridge manufacture, and delivered to music lovers, worldwide.
