    Sounds a bargain John - they were pretty good "bargain basement" players in their day (Richer Sounds special, I think?) and a good introduction into what a "separates" player could do. Enjoy!

    Is to give a larger gap between tracks when recording?

    My MD deck has a space feature (not a button, but an entry in the menu). It puts an additional gap between tracks during playback. I guess the eclipse will do something similar.

    Study: NAD 302, Homebuilt PC, Tannoy Mercury MX1 bookshelf speakers.

    Future upgrades:IPL M1TLM transmission line speakers

    Yes ,I think that is correct ! Took the plunge
    And pushed the button ,it apears to pause for a few seconds
    Between tracks,would that have been for home tapeing?

    Sounds like a good tenners' worth! Googling it found this, from Singapore, I think. Good if you like ZZTop

    Ahh... the Eclipse CD101..

    Takes me back to our house-share system - Eclipse CD101 and Sony tape/vinyl/receiver entertainment system with some dynatron speakers.

    I think the CD101 was considered something decent for original bargain basement Richer Sounds type purchases, like say a Cambridge Audio CD4
