Electro Servo Fully-Automatic Direct-Drive Turntable

review this turntable (2 reviews)



Superb tracking and utmost operating convenience are happily and harmoniously combined in the L-F71 from JVC.

An E-D servo system is built in to damp arm resonance for better tracking.

Music Scan automatically scoots the tonearm right over to the beginning of any song you want to hear.

Just punch in the track number of the song you want to start listening to and our special optical system in the headshell tells the tonearm where to set down.

Skip lets you jump right to the beginning of the next selection.

By designing a straight, low-mass tonearm and coupling it with our E-D servo system that controls it's horizontal movement, we succeeded in damping arm resonance.

The L-F71 is totally and effectively protected against mistracking and colouration.

Touch any of the operating buttons and the programmed to order micro-computer supervises the order of events flawlessly.

Since the L-F71 is fully automatic, you need not touch the tonearm at any time.

Our exclusive cog-free coreless, DC servo motor and FG super servo speed control account for the superb performance of the L-F71.
