And this changer in good order is arguably better than many a Garrard, the LAB 80's the only better they built. It is legitimately HiFi in every way. A USA classic in design and engineering. And even the cost and feature cut GE later versions were more than good.
The first one I worked on amazed me the way it works. The turntable stops completely before the next record drops, then starts again before the stylus drops in the lead-in groove.
The manufacturer claimed it minimized record wear.
