Fully-Automatic Quartz Locked Direct-Drive Turntable (1978-1979)
fitted with an S-shaped, static balance type tonearm
The Pioneer PL-630 features two speeds (33 and 45 rpm), a pitch control knob with a +-6% range, switchable quartz speed locking, a pitch meter, disc size switch and a repeat mode.
The full automatic mechanism is based on optical, and therefore no-contact, detection principles so that force is not needlessly exerted on the tonearm.
When the switch is depressed, the tonearm automatically swings over to the record and play begins.
All the controls are arranged at the front so that records can be played and the controls operated with the dust cover down. This effectively increases the handling ease of the turntable.
Furthermore, the auto mechanism can be released with the flick of a switch, and this allows you to play non-standard size records where the auto-return function would otherwise stop play before the end of the record.
