All three share the "GT" "rock of Gibraltar" diecast zinc alloy transport with "double capstan bearings" for each of the pair. These represented the highwater mark for Luxman's foray into the cassette format. I have a K and wouldn't part with it.
Their "fantasy" deck, the X-3K was prototyped only. If you look to an earlier thread here on TH, there is a picture of it. It is about the size of a microwave oven, and represents truly fearsome, out-of-the-box engineering. Truly a "skunkworks" production! Mark J. Originally Posted by ndd.

A new one isn't worth much more then the first quote, since you can get a Nak Dragon for a couple hundred dollars more. Well from what I see that is not the case, since he is nor a tech, or a person who I'm sure knows these decks well.
Let's see if he takes my offer on it. I sent him an email stating why its only worth the going price for these. I still look on the 'bay for a k or k I really want one but they rarely pop up. Idler pucks, belts, etc, all original on my k, works great-go figure.
If seller doesn't have it probably doesn't maybe you can use that as a bargaining point. This deck has a real warm sound. Yeah, the specs are incredible as are other totl decks, but it just sounds better. The only other decks of this calibre that I have to compare are my HK 's, which have similar specs and although good, they sound more like a CD than a tape deck. This might be due to them having lots of ic's and the Lux have lots of discrete parts- it is rather large and it isn't like a big case with nothing inside either.
If I get my taxes done soon, I'll hook up my jvc nr and see how she sings with super anrs! Originally Posted by katana Then again, I have never seen one in uh, such dubious condition. I do think it is weird that the seller linked this very thread to his sale though! BTW, I didn't bid on it! It really is hard to say what the going rate is as they don't pop up often. It really is what a person is in the mood to pay. What is the market rate? Who knows, this was the first time one popped up on ebay and I have never seen one for sale anywhere else, at least in the years I have been looking!
However, this one does not look like a 'good example'. The first thing that looks hinky is the jammed meter. Note that the seller is not saying it is brand new, he is sort of implying it by showing that box. Pacific Stereo I think that is who said that a common problem with these is burned out meters, which can be sometimes be repaired by people who are very skilled. Mine doesn't have that problem, but it doesn't have that many hours of usage. I would make the assumption that a bad meter implies a lot of usage.
Call that strike 1! There is just one pic and it is a bit murky- strike 2! No remote- strike 3 yer outta here! But, I bet it needs puck, belts, alignment and hopefully, the heads are fine. It looks like a surprise box full of expenses. It is a good deck though. I have read posts from people who have owned Dragons and K saying that they preferred the K It is a nice deck. I've never seen one go for as high as you mention. All times are GMT The time now is AM. Contact Us - Tapeheads.

|Sandisk a110 m 2 2260||Perhaps they are not a particularly "strong" type of metal tape, overlapping with Type II? Similar deck would be the K, but they don't come up for sale no where near as much. I discovered this today and I was like. How about clarity? Overall sound, I give a slight, slight luxman k373 to the K|
