(13) function must be turned off in order for the pitch
function to operate.
13. Quartz Lock Select Button -
This button is used to turn the pitch function on and off.
When the Quartz function is activated the platter will
hold the RPMs at 0% pitch, regardless of the Pitch
Slider (14). When the quartz function is inactive the
Pitch Slider (14) may be used to manipulate platter
speed.
14. Pitch Adjust Slider -
This slider is used to adjust the playback pitch
percentage (platter speed) when the Quartz Lock (13)
function is inactive. Use this slider to match the BPM’s
of this unit to that of another music source.
15. Platter Rotation Selector Buttons -
The turntable has the ability to play records in
reverse. This button dictates turntable direction. When
the turntable is normal operating mode (forward
direction) the LED below the "F" icon will glow. When
the turntable in reverse playback mode the LED
below the "R" icon will glow.
16. Tone Arm Assembly -
This assembly will be explained in tonearm section on
the next page.
17. Extra Stylus Holder -
This cut out has been designed to safely store an extra
stylus headshell.
18. Cover Hinge Holder -
These holders allow the hinged protective cover to be
removed when the unit is in use.

19. Stylus Headshell -
The included headshell is used to connect your stylus
with the tone arm.
20. Headshell Locking Nut -
After attaching the headshell to the tonearm, this
locking nut will securely hold the headshell to the
tonearm.
21. S-Shaped Tone Arm -
The tonearm is the mechanism that holds the headshell and stylus allowing it to glide across a record.
22. Tonearm Lift Adjust Screw -
This screw is used to adjust the clearance between
the stylus and a record. The stylus clearance is set
at the factory to be between 8~13mm. Adjustments to
the tonearm clearance should only be made if
necessary.
23. Tonearm Assembly Height Control -
This adjustment is used to control the overall height
of the tonearm assembly. The tonearm should always
be perfectly parallel to the platter.
24. Tonearm Clamp and Rest -
Use this rest to safely hold the tonearm in position
during non use and transportation.
25. Tonearm Lever -
This lever is used to safely elevates the tone arm
above a record surface without endangering a
records surface.
26. Anti-Skate Control -
The anti-skate applies inward force to the tonearm to
prevent outward skipping across the record due to the
centrifugal force cause by platter rotation. The antiskate value should be equally to that of the stylus
counterweight pressure (see counterweight 27).
27. Counterweight -
The counterweight adjustment applies the proper
downward pressure on the stylus.
