JVC L-F210


Here's a turntable with solid features for solid performance, like a coreless direct-drive motor, the Independent Suspension system, a straight tonearm and even a pitch control. Operating ease? No question about it, because the L-F210 is fully automatic, from auto lead-in to end of record lead out and motor shut off.

The JVC automatic mechanism of the L-F210 is foolproof. And it is far more accurate and gentle than your fumbling fingers ever could be. There's never a reason to touch the tonearm at any time. The stylus is protected from damage and records last longer.

Operating controls are along the front edge and within easy reach even when the dust cover is closed.

We use a low-wow coreless DC direct-drive motor in the L-F210 for the sake of speed accuracy. Built in our own plant, this motor exhibits low wow and flutter, so low that your music is reproduced pitch perfect.

Tonearm resonance, when excited by warps or eccentricities, even slightly, adds coloration to music, giving a fuzzy edge to it. Our low-mass straight tonearm is desensitized to resonance - the reason why in music played on the L-F210 you hear so much detail and clarity. And since it is straight, the tonearm is highly resistant to torsion and so sensitivity remains high even after long use.

You can intentionally tune a record to the wrong pitch if you want, because the L-F210 has a pitch control that lets you adjust speed up to 3 percent faster or slower than standard. It's a must have feature if you're a musician, amateur or otherwise, for it lets you precisely match the pitch of a record to any musical instrument. Of course, you can quickly return to the right pitch whenever you want thanks to a built-in strobe with neon light.
