Sony PS-LX5

Sony PS-LX5R

1 9 8 1 1981

Pretty but tech-filled fully-automatic turntable for the masses with the usual (by Sony) features :

Magnedisc / Quartz-Lock, Duralumin two-point tonearm, BSL motor, electromagnetic braking, SBMC cabinet, plus added novelties such as record guides, an RM-65 remote terminal for synchronized k7 recording and... slimline dimensions.

Also available as PS-LX5R (in Japan ?), the differences of which elude me, besides the black color.
