JVC JL-F45 and JL-F35 turntables (Jan. 1977)

Home | Audio Magazine | Stereo Review magazine | Good Sound | Troubleshooting

You only hear what's on top of the platter--Not what's beneath it.

You can always distinguish the excellence of a turntable by its capability to rotate a platter precisely, at a given speed, without adding rumble, wow and flutter to the performance.

Because JVC's new JL-F45 turntable platter is directly driven by a specially designed DC servo motor, any rumble-producing effect is virtually nonexistent. The result is outstanding measurements that defy audibility.

Rumble is better than 70dB (DIN B) and wow and flutter is less than 0.03% (WRMS). Even some of the most expensive turntables don't measure up to the excellence of these specifications.

In addition to the precision of direct-drive, the JL-F45 offers dual options for operation. Manual. And completely automatic. Auto Lead in. Auto Return. Auto Stop. You can even repeat play a record automatically up to six times-or infinitely.

The JL-F45's exclusively designed Tracing-Hold tonearm assures the highest degree of groove tracking with unusually low tracking error.

This is absolutely essential for today's ultra low tracking cartridges, including CD-4. The new unipoint gimbal suspension system reduces unwanted friction and overcomes unexpected jolts to the arm.

Every feature you're likely to want in a quality turntable contributes to this 2-speed unit's high level of performance.

2-way viscous-damped cueing. A 12-inch aluminum die cast patter with illuminated strobe. Anti-skating control. Direct-reading tracking force dial. And lots more.

While the JL-F45 is JVC's top of the line at $250* there are two other more modestly priced models. The fully automatic belt-driven JL-F35 at $160* And the semi-automatic JL-A15 at $130*.

Whichever you choose, you can be sure you're r getting the most turntable precision, reliability and value JVC has ever offered.
