The QL-L2 is a study in precision engineering. It has both a linear tracking toneram and a JVC quartz motor with double servo control, two of the most advanced features you can ask for in a turntable today.

And to make sure it is easy to use, it has a microcomputer supervised fully automatic mechanism. Is there a more advanced turntable today? If so, we have yet to see it.
