Quartz-Locked Fully-Automatic Turntable (1981)

review this turntable (1 review)



The QL-F61 is more than just sleek, slim and solid; it's jam packed with futuristic JVC technology.

One example is advanced double-servo, quartz control that maintains platter speed with unerring accuracy.

Another is the coreless DC motor, it's brushless, coreless and cog-free.

The arm is a low mass straight line type for better tracking.

For convenience sake, the QL-F61 is fully automatic from cue-in to end of play shut-off.
