re: RS-T55R

Since the English manual is not currently available, it might be helpful to mention that this deck supports a basic auto track search function ('music selector'). It operates as follows:

During forward playback, [>>] skips to the next track and [<<] skips to the beginning of the current track. Pressing [<<] twice skips to the beginning of the previous track instead. In reverse playback mode the functions of [>>] and [<<] are reversed, but the same rules apply.

Thank you mrothbau for posting the German user manual which explains the feature.
