Dimensia MTT135 Phonograph

RCA Dimensia MTT135 Linear Tracking Turntable


  • The Front-load MTT135, from 1985, complemented the MTT130 Top-load Linear Tracking Turntable introduced with the Dimensia system in 1984.
  • Also in 1985, RCA introduced the Digital Command Component series. The fundamental component of this "RCA Audio System" is the MSR140 Stereo Receiver, which provides system control functionality for audio components only, with no need to purchase a Dimensia television. This Digital Command Component series includes the MTT131 Linear Tracking Turntable, which is identical to the MTT130 Top-load model except for the lack of the Dimensia name on the unit.
  • In 1987 RCA introduced the MTT230 Top-load Linear Tracking Turntable to replace the earlier units.
