I think ADA made such a table, over thirty years ago,but it was really lo-fi. Best to rip the lp to a cd with track coding, then you will be set to go, especially since you will shortly wear out the lp. Another way is to download the track from iTunes etc.

If my memory serves me, the ADC Accutrac was actually made by BSR. They had an idea, but the end result was sort of like Ronco's stuff. Maybe they should have named it the Record-a-Matic as seen on TV.
I suppose there should be a category called "Innovative Junk" for such products. Anyway, find one that works, and you have found one of the precious few.
The very first store that I owned, way back in the day was an Optonica dealer. The Optonica RP-7100 had an extra sensor arm that rode along with the tonearm that detected the tracks. It actually sounded decent and worked pretty well.
Thanks for the link. This is something new to me, using laser beams to read the surface of the LP. I wonder how it sounds, and the price. Anybody own this laser turntable?
Thanks for the information. Looks pretty decent. After reading some of the responses here, now I'm more worried about record wear than stylus wear.
