    Here is a link
    for some reason I cannot post a link...

    Anyway I do not think this is Audio Technica like some of the other Hitachi stuff.

    Thanks for the help

    I don't know much, but here's what I have.
    Lo-D was, as far as I know, Hitachi's high-end sub-brand for the Japanese domestic market.
    Here's the MT-202 Mk II's description from one of those Japanese archive sites:

    and here are the specs:

    Visually close relatives: MT-100 and MT-101. There's also an MT-202E, which the description mentions, though it has a much older look than the other three.
