Operating the Laser Turntable
When you place a record in the drawer and press the play button, the record tray closes and the LT will quickly scan the disk to identify the various bands (cuts). Bands are displayed on the front panel Record Profile LCD display. A single vertical line above the "bands" indicator will show you the position of the laser pickup head. The vertical indicator will travel across the record as it is played showing its exact position on the record, and which band is playing.
On the initial scan the laser head will move from the inside (spindle) to the outside track while marking the bands. The machine will then automatically move into the first band and measure the distance from the head to the record surface. After a few seconds the record will begin playing from the beginning.
|If you want to hear the record side more than once, you can specify multiple (1-4 times) by pressing the Play button up to four times. PL4 will appear in the message window. If you press the play button 5 times the LT will play the side repeatedly and PL99 will appear in the window.|
If you wish to repeat a cut on the record or program the machine to play selected bands in any order this is accomplished with the buttons on the front panel or remote control. All special functions are available when you use the programmed mode.
|Seek Forward and Seek Backward allows you to listen to a segment of the cut.|
|At any time you may use the Scan Back or Scan Forward to override the programming and listen to another cut.|
|When a record starts to play, the message window will display the RPM of the platter. When a record is playing, the display automatically shows the elapsed running time. If you press the Side button, you can see the elapsed time, the remaining time of the side, and total time of the side.|
|Pressing the Cut button will display the elapsed time of the current cut, the remaining time of the cut, and the total time of the cut while pressing the button multiple times.|
|The Hover button allows you to play a single grove segment repeatedly. The player automatically goes into the pause mode if left in hover more than two minutes. The play light stays on during these operations. There is absolutely no damage to the record when using the hover or pause modes. Only light beams are touching the record.|
|The Pause mode is very convenient for cueing a record when you are transferring the music to another medium. Seek Back or Seek Forward will quickly move the playback head to the beginning of the next track, or previous track.|
