LUXMAN’s LMC-5 marks the return of moving coil phono cartridge production after a 40 year hiatus! This latest effort boasts a cross-mounted iron core, with unique signal generating coil structures, allied to an efficient compact magnetic system. Record groove contact is achieved via a SHIBATA profile stylus mounted to an aluminum pipe cantilever enabling excellent tracing ability with low background noise. In addition, the unique and sonically advantageous housing structure was achieved through research, repeated prototyping and attentive fine tuning. We have developed the LMC-5 with confidence and appreciation for all who love vinyl playback and value its musicality.
