Hitachi HT-L303

Pretty as can be export-only linear tracking turntable with electronica aplenty replacing heavy mechanisms and old-school black magic spinners.

Low /mid /high adjustable track sensors for automatic... no, not automatic track spotting and playing : sensors locate beginning, end and middle of the disc so as to repeat up to 16 times one side or half of a side and repeatedly play said side, its first half or its last half.

If a song starts not exactly where the middle of the side is, you'll start with "... I love you !" in the chorus and will have the "Baby !" of the preceding bridge skipped. Which may not be a bad thing if repeatedly repeated.

Programming of one particular section is however possible, even if manually - "Baby ! I love you !" in one piece again. And sixteen times, too.

DC servo motor moving a lightweight platter with a belt, T4P cartridge mount for no-fuss music listening with a fixed 1,25g tracking force. Simply plug and play !

Design is the word and the HT-L303 is pretty.
