Lo-D HT-354
34,000yen(around the 1979 time)
The auto player which adopted the uni-torque motor.

The uni-torque motor by a technology original with a Lo-D is carried in the motor.
A uni-torque motor is a motor which asked for perfect circular motion from the principle,A rotor magnet of a doughnut form by which the magnetizing was carried out, and 2 sets of star-shaped flat coils shifted 22^5 degrees are consisted of by eight poles, and the amount of torque generated from these two coils and magnets becomes fixed very always about which moment. This principle can be expressed with the easy numeric expression "sin2theta+cos2theta=1." In the uni-torque motor, further, the simple structure of a brushless and a slotless & coreless is adopted, and the endurance is also improving sharply.

The auto organization of the Ohtori turn in which a positive trances is possible, and an auto cut is carried also by the light stylus-force cartridge.

The anti skating organization, the stroboscope with a neon glow lamp, and the oil dumping type arm lifter are carried.
