JVC JL-A20 Belt Drive turntable

JVC JL-A20 Belt Drive turntable


Hard to believe this turntable was made in 1977!  It has great styling and is a great sounding turntable as well.  


It has a quality tonearm, with anti-skating for well-balanced sound,  The removable headshell can accomodate a wide range of cartridges should you ever choose to upgrade.


It is a semi-automatic turntable - perfect for those who don't want to get up at the end of a record and prefer to let the turntable return the tonearm to rest for you.


This turntable has been recently serviced and is ready to spin for you.  It also comes with a new stylus and is fully setup in all repects.
