THE MARANTZ TURNTABLES -- FOR THE BUDGET-MINDED PERFECTIONIST.
High on performance, the belt-drive 6100 features a super-dependable AC synchronous motor. The convenience of auto return and shut off. Plus full protection of your valuable records with a precision S-shaped tone arm, gentle-action viscous damped cueing and anti-skate.
FOR THE BUTTON-PUSHER. THE TOTALLY AUTOMATIC 6200.
Auto-everything. Auto start. Auto return and shut off. Auto repeat. Operates manually, as well. A servo motor, coupled with belt drive, assures optimum speed accuracy. Stroboscopic pitch control "fine tunes" speed to compensate for off-pitch records or for playing along with a musical instrument. The 6200 cares for your records, too, with a precision S-shaped tone arm, gentle-action viscous-damped cueing and anti-skate.
(not shown) Model 6200/$199.99.
FOR THE TOP-OF-THE-LINER. THE DIRECT DRIVE, OPTO-COUPLED AUTO LIFT 6300.
Features and technological excellence galore. Starting with absolute speed accuracy assured by a combination of direct drive design and DC servo motor that automatically compensates for voltage/speed fluctuations. Of course, there's auto lift and shut off, but on the 6300 it's opto-coupled--a significant Marantz exclusive. It means no tracking distortion caused by mechanical linkage between auto mechanism and tone arm. The secret: a tiny beam from a light-emitting diode maintains constant contact with a photo transistor during play.
At record's end, a sliding blade cuts contact, activating a circuit that lifts the tone arm and shuts off the motor. There's more.
Stroboscopic pitch control -- fine-tunes" speed to your personal preference. And viscous damped cueing gently, smoothly lowers the precision S-shaped tone arm onto the sensitive disk surface. Vertical/ lateral counterbalancing and anti-skate results in lowest distortion and tracking error.
Marantz --- We sound better.
