Lo-D HT-466
48,000yen(around the 1979 time)

The full auto player which adopted the Quartz nowait-lock 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 rotation stabilized by pouring the crystal control (Quartz nowait-lock PLL servo) which hardly receives a voltage fluctuation, and temporality and a temperature change on this motor has been obtained.

The full auto organization which adopted the motor only for an arm drive is carried.
It is designed so that this full auto organization may not interfere at the time of a manual operation.

At the time of a record performance, the side pressure depended on a return detection was not added, but the photoelectron type Ohtori turn detection organization without an excessive distorted occurrence is adopted.

The gimbal support scheme tone arm excellent in flattery nature is adopted as a light stylus-force performance.
Moreover, the head shell containing a glass fiber is adopted as a head shell.
