Lo-D HT-660
67,000yen(around the 1979 time)

The Quartz nowait lock and the full auto player system which carries an electronic return.

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.
In HT-660, the crystal control (Quartz nowait-lock PLL servo) hardly influenced by the voltage fluctuation, or temporality and a temperature change was poured on this uni-torque motor, and the high-precision rotation is realized.
Moreover, a startup property reaches a constant-speed in 1/2 rotation.

The electronic braking system which can perform a record switching and a velocity switching quickly is built in. This is shortening this stop time for about 25 seconds in no equipping DD till about 3 seconds.

By adoption of 2 motor system which became independent about the motor for a turntable rotation, and the motor for an arm drive, a cross interferencee is lost, and it considers so that a basic performance may not be spoiled.

The photoelectron type Ohtori turn detection organization is carried.
Unlike the conventional mechanical return detection scheme, a return is possible by no contacting in the combination of the light source (light emitting diode), a shutter, and a photosensor (Cds).

It is possible to carry the arm height adjustment mechanism, to adjust the degree of level of an arm correctly, and to rectify a vertical tracking angle error.

A thing 330mm in diameter is adopted as a turntable.

The front operation soft push switch which can perform an easy operation with a book jacket closed is adopted.
