What is stereo?

There are now two system of high fidelity, monophonic (monaural) and stereophonic. Monophonic is a system that starts from one microphone and is fed through a single high fidelity set. Stereophonic is a double system. Two separate microphones are placed at different sides of the orchestra and two different systems are used to keep the two signals or channels separated. Two separate speakers are used, placed on different sides of you room. Stereo is much like 3-D photography, two slightly different sound reach your ears giving you a new dimension in sound.

Sony PS-X600 turntable


All of the performance and convenience features of the fully-automatic PS-X600 complement the Biotracer tonearm incorporated in this remarkable components.

Outstanding Features

Biotracer tonearm elicits the best performance from the widest variety of cartridges

Biotracer actively damps tonearm/cartridge resonance and achieves wide stereo separation

Biotracer controls tracking force, antiskating and tonearm automatic functions


Turntable and Construction



Quartz lock with Magnedisc servo control prevents even minute speed variations caused by external factors

The Sony Linear Torque BSL (brushless, slotless) motor designed for uniform and smooth delivery of torque

Electromagnetic braking provides rapid and smooth half of platter rotation

Sony Bulk Molding Compound base is both rigid and acoustically inert to reduce feedback

Adjustable gel-filled feet isolate turntable from external vibration

Tonearm may be "indexed" left and right at high or low speed without lifting dust cover

Automatic record-size selector permits precise and safe indexing

"Repeat" mode for continuous music

Capable of operation in synchronization with selected Sony cassette decks using the optional SONY RM-65

Tonearm and Functions

Advanced fully-automatic operation is silent and responsive for total convenience

Feather touch controls respond to the slightest finger contact for fast effortless function selection

Audio muting circuit provides silence during start, return and cueing phases.

Luminous end-of-disc sensor frees the tonearm from mechanical linkages for improved sensitivity,
