It seems that the LP-16 on startup goes to normal MT playback mode, it doesn’t matter if it was in playlist mode when I closed it down . If I am right about this it would be nice to save somehow the last mode (and maybe the last playlist). I assume that most artists and bands are using mainly the playlist mode and mostly they are working with one playlist, so it would save a couple button pushing. (And in the case of a power-cut the unit should go the proper state without attendance.)
