Definition: what is 'idler drive' with regard to a record player?
Answer: a drive train system where a capstan rotates against an idler wheel, which in turn transfers the rotating energy to the platter that turns the record. Typically the capstan will be on the end of motor shaft. However, the capstan can also be remotely powered by means of a drive belt.
