   -**Tonearm / Cartridge:​** The position of the needle on the record determines the playback position. The outer edge of the record corresponds to the beginning of the track, and the inner edge to the end. Every record has a small lead in zone at the beginning, where no audio is played back and which can be used to cue up tracks. When the track on the record is finished playing, the needle will stay in a locked groove near the center of the record.   -**Tonearm / Cartridge:​** The position of the needle on the record determines the playback position.
