    I don't know if this is just the design, or if a repair is possible.

    I recently received a Technics turntable, I think the model that made
    them famous. The cartridge and needle are in the clear lucite lid of
    the turntable, and they move horizontally (no azimuth? issues) as the
    record is played.

    It works well, except afaict, there is no way to put a new record on
    and start playing anywhere other than the outermost part of the
    record. I can't start playing in the middle.

    Is this the way it was meant to work? Seems hard to believe.

    Thanks.

  2. Every one I've ever seen had direction-arrow buttons that would move the
    tonearm left or right to the desired portion of the record. Setting down
    exactly where you wanted was still a problem.

    The model number should be on the lid a-la
