Lo-D HT-460RM
57,000yen(around the 1979 time)

In combining with "control center HCC-8" in which wireless remote control is possible, almost all operations are the full auto player systems in which a computer control is possible.

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.

Full auto functionalities, such as the Ohtori turn and an auto cut, are carried.

The oil dumping type arm lifter is carried.

The measures against a howling are taken by the special insulator and the vibration proof form tone arm.

A switching of a head shell is possible.
