Turntable That Can Automatically Replay A Track?


Is there a turntable that can automatically detect the duration of a musical track by the groove lines on the record and replay the track without having the user going up to the turntable and moving the tonearm? I've got up from my listening chair more than 50 times yesterday to replay the same track on the turntable. On certain days I can listen to the same song for hours (on repeat). It's easy on a CD player but quite a chore with a turntable.

Does such a turntable exist? It would be great if a remote is available for selecting tracks but that would be asking too much.

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.
Thanks for the reply. Guess I'll just have to find the equivalent music in another format and hit the repeat button instead of ending up with an ancient low end device.

Cheers.
If you want something high-end, you might want to look into The Laser Turnable.

Just food for thought. I've read that a particular track should be played no more than once a day since the record material deforms from the stylus pressure. Repeated playback in the short term can damage and prematurely wear the groves.
Why would you even want to to this Dude!!
The ADC Accutrac. Readily available on eBay.
FYI, The ADC Accutrac was a key part in a 1970's Columbo murder mystery.

In fact numerous Columbo episodes showed in film or featured hi-fi gear. I wonder if Peter Falk or a member of the production team were hi-fi buffs?
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.

Cheers.
