Quartz Controlled Direct-Drive Fully Automatic Turntable System with Linear tracking tonearm (1981)
The Technics SL-15 allows the choice of any track in any order via a numbered array of buttons.
Simply press the program keys in the order you want the bands played.
The tonearm of the SL15 will first move across to the innermost grooves of the record so the optical sensor can read and memorise the number of bands and their positions.
Turntable speed is chosen automatically according to optoelectronic detection of record size.
There is, therefore, no need to manually choose turntable speed or record size.
