About This Listing

Yamaha YP-D5:
A nice vintage Japanese "Golden Era" turntable!

The Yamaha YP-D5, released in 1978 during the "Golden Era" of Japanese audiophile equipment, is a highly-respected direct-drive turntable that was released exclusively in Japan. The YP-D5 was created with three primary goals: high rotational accuracy, high sensitivity, and low interference from vibrational noise. The YP-D5 uses a coreless Hall motor with a quartz PLL control circuit to drive the 30 cm aluminum platter. The power supply maintains a constant voltage even with large output current and load changes. The tonearm and headshell features some nice innovations, including an advanced counterweight mechanism (increasing stylus sensitivity) and a low-weight high-rigidity headshell. It has a wow and flutter of 0.05%. The YP-D5 offers exceptional performance by virtue of its robust and unerring construction, as expected from Yamaha.

This unit is in very good condition, with only minor general wear throughout, including some scratches and yellowing overall (please see photos). It has been thoroughly checked and tested by our professional technician, confirming its flawless operation. The 33 and 45 settings both work perfectly, and the platter rotation is like clockwork, as expected from Yamaha products of this era, which were built for a lifetime of operation.
